Couch Slouch allows, with the appropriate hardware, control of your Mac through the Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) protocol on the HDMI bus. More info on CEC here.
In plain English: Use your TV's remote control to control your Mac!
Couch Slouch requires Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) to build and run. If you just want to run Couch Slouch on your Mac, you can download it from the Couch Slouch website.
Currently, the only supported device is the USB-CEC Adapter by Pulse-Eight.

- Clone Couch Slouch using
git clone --recursive git://github.com/iKenndac/Couch-Slouch.gitto make sure you get all the submodules too.
- If you got excited and cloned the repo before reading this, run
git submodule update --initin the Couch Slouch directory to grab the submodules. If I get tickets about it not building and you haven't got the submodules checked out, you lose 5 internet points!
- Build away!
