xtypeinto

Pick a string and an X window, and the string is type into the window.

This can be useful to work around things like sites with stupid password fields that disable pasting, making it possible to use them with password managers again.

Pass a string to xtypeinto as an argument, or as standard input.

xtypeinto will show a crosshair to pick a window, and the text will be typed into that window.

Please make sure that you focus on the right field before running xtypeinto, to make sure things are typed where you need them.
