pygs provides cross-platform global hotkey / shortcuts for python using PyQt4.
My aim is to provide cross-platform support for global hotkeys (shortcuts) in python. Ideally I would like to remove the PyQt4 and libqxt dependency but that remains a (distant) future goal. I believe it is definitely possible and potentially quite useful though.
sufficient not necessary
- Python 2.6
Mac and Linux
make -f Makefile.windows
make -f Makefile.windows install
ctrl+alt+s – activate shortcut
ctrl+alt+f – quit application
NOTE: ctrl maps to COMMAND on macs!!!! Yeah this is crazy confusing. But it’s Qt not me :)
pygs – Python bindings to libqxt’s QxtGlobalShortcut using SIP and PyQt4. In other words, global hotkeys for PyQt4
