An Ember addon for painlessly supporting keyboard events


  • Ember Octane-friendly template declarations for keyboard shortcuts
  • Support for keyup and keydown, as well as the modifier keys: ctrl, alt, shift, and meta.
  • Dynamic priority levels allow you to specify which components respond first to key events and under what circumstances. (Thanks to ember-key-responder for the inspiration)
  • Human-readable key-mappings. (Thanks to ember-keyboard-service for the inspiration)
