Ctrl Alt Foo

Build Status

Make it easy to listen for keyboard shortcuts / accelator keys.


This is an early preview release and the syntax is not settled. Please add issues in the tracker if you have suggestions.

import 'package:ctrl_alt_foo2/keys.dart';

  'Esc':          (){ _hideMenu(); _hideDialog(); },
  'Ctrl+N':       ()=> new NewProjectDialog(this).open(),
  'Ctrl+O, ⌘+O':  ()=> new OpenDialog(this).open(),
  'Ctrl+Shift+H': ()=> toggleCode()

There are also some helper methods for creating keyboard events:

import 'package:ctrl_alt_foo2/helpers.dart';

typeIn('TEXT'); // will generate a keyup


arrowUp(); // optionally supply the number of time to arrow up

type('A'); // type a single character
typeCtrl('A'); // type Ctrl+A
typeCtrlShift('A'); // type Ctrl+Shift+A
