TODO

  • write documents and publish on rubygem.org
  • a daemonize script
  • remove @two_storoke and add PrefixBindResolver class
  • change BindResolver on input method system
  • simplify config file (e.g. bind_key [:ctrl, :m], :enter, bind_key "ctrl+m", "enter" )
  • integrate ibus controller (e.g. bind_key "alt-grave", "toggle_ibus" )
  • notification when active a prefix key, changing ibus status, etc..
  • the LED manipulation does not work for bluetooth devices
  • fix bug
    • the enter key cannot be release when rbindkey is executed
