There is a big international community of users and contributors of AutoHotkey, which is a free, open-source utility for Windows. Home is http://www.autohotkey.com/. The primary author is Chris Mallett.
- Automate almost anything by sending keystrokes and mouse clicks per manually written macros or by using the macro recorder.
- Create hotkeys for keyboard, joystick, and mouse for virtually any key, button, or combination.
- Expand abbreviations as you type them.
- Create custom data entry forms, user interfaces, and menu bars.
- Remap keys and buttons on your keyboard, joystick, and mouse.
- Respond to signals from hand-held remote controls via the WinLIRC? client script.
- Run existing AutoIt? v2 scripts and enhance them with new capabilities.
- Convert any script into an EXE file that can be run on computers that don't have AutoHotkey installed.
As new Features MidiToKb:
allows all the above features, but adds the following:
- touch- and timesensitive input from a Midi Piano Keyboard
- making use of WikidPad as frontend and database-engine for storing and calling macros
- using fast hash-arrays of KeyKit for convenient storing lots of hotstrings without using up the PC hotstring name space of AutoHotkey
- using the KeyKit as kind of userprogrammable server for extensions, that reach from multitasking
- type-, eartraining, sound-skins, Midi- composition to -performance (simple graphics included)
Users of AutoHotkey and MidiToKb may (hopefully) write macros, to emulate TwinWikiBall functions as clientsite prototypes for a later TechnologySolution on the serversite.
