obkey - openbox key editor - undead

obkey development was dead.
but, a powerfull sorceress summoned it as an UNDEAD.
now, with its code contaminated by the GPL virus, it bites.
coming soon to a computer near you.

ObKey

News

Version 1.3 is finally released ! Now Obkey support searching (related to the command) and sorting. Some standard keybindings are now implemented:

  • copy Control-c
  • paste Control-v
  • duplicate Control-d
  • save Control-s
  • reload file Control-z
  • quit Control-s
  • delete Delete

This is really not perfect and i wished to make it more accessible :

  • To select an item, you can just press on up and down arrows, or start to search a pattern describing an existing action
  • You can change the keybind by moving to the keybind field by pressing right arrow and space
  • You can focused to all action fields with tab keys
  • You'll probably use a mouse to setup keybindings easily and it is sad

Usage

# Minimalist
obkey

# Custom file
obkey rc.xml

# With foreign languages
LANGUAGE=fr obkey

Why ObKey ?

openbox is newspeakly lightcustable (especially for window placement).
Its custom file is ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml...
Boring XML...
You feel you will abide...
Stop mumbling : hope still exists : there's ObConf and there's ObKey !
