serenade-driver

A collection of utilities for implementing cross-platform low-level system automations. Check out the test directory for example usages.

This module is used by Serenade, the most powerful way to write code using natural speech. For more, see https://serenade.ai.

Documentation

Building & Testing

To build the library, simply run:

yarn

Then, to test, you can run:

node test/test.js

That test file will simulate a bunch of keystrokes, so if your computer looks like it's going crazy, don't worry. Probably.
