Introduction

This project is an attempt to create simple equivalent of Synergy project that is easier to install and use, certainly not replace it or not trying to do better.

Security disclaimer

Usage

Start by launching the server on the master computer.

nodejs master.js

Mind that sometimes it may be node master.js, also if your user account does not have permissions to read /dev/input/ devices server will not launch properly. Launching it as root is NOT recommended and if you do so you do it on your own risk.

Once server is started launch client applications on each of side screen computers using following command.

nodejs slave.js
