How I have hacked my keyboard to seamlessly operate 300+ global shortcuts of macros, alfred workflows and the like

I have recently updated my github repository where I documented what keyboard remapping I have made over these months.

If you take a look at my ‘s’ key for example, it contains quite a lot of really nice macros that I can seamlessly integrate into my workflow thanks to this tool. There really is no barrier to adding a new hotkey. I don’t have to twist my hands. I don’t have to try and remember the shortcuts as first, I use them daily, and secondly, I can map my hotkeys naturally into their appropriate sections. Ultimately I am always two keypresses away from everything that I can dream of doing.

This looks to be pretty amazing. But it appears to be one of those things that just cannot be done justice to in words… Would you ever consider making a screencast of your macros in action? I cannot but help thinking that seeing it, will demonstrate the full benefit, and (complex) simplicity of how this can change everything.

For example, when you say that your space-bar is now a sticky-key modifier, that you can use to trigger actions - how does that actually work, practically? Do you hold the space-bar down? How does the system distinguish you launching a macro, from just everyday typing?

Apologies for what might be silly questions! But I’ve read some of your posts before - also over on the Alfted forum(?), and whereas I am really interested in what this could potentially do, I’m struggling to get my head around it. Although, maybe it’s just me!! :slight_smile:

Not really. 

Few people would bother to go to all that trouble without really understanding the payoff.

I think a vid is a good idea, but it would need to demonstrate workflows that would benefit “normal” people. :sunglasses:
