  • Cross-platform hotkeys and hotstrings?

    If you needed a cross-platform solution today, I would recommend looking into Python and some of its related ecosystem, such as the keyboard package, which provides cross-platform hotkey support and keyboard automation, including 'word listeners' and its companion module mouse.

    And here are some libraries that might pique your interest although they don't strictly answer your question: - tqdm for adding a progress bar on for loops (it comes with useful information like iteration per second and estimated time needed to finish) - alive_progress adds a progress bar like tqdm, but it works even with generators and while loops which I don't think tqdm does. -timebudget, with just a decorator as soon as a function is completed it prints the time taken to execute it - send2trash for sending files to the trash bin instead of permanently deleting them - keyboard for sending keyboard inputs or check if a key is pressed - mouse same as keyboard but with mouse buttons - textract for extracting text from many types of file with a single interface. It supports documents, powerpoint presentations, csv, excels, images, gifs, audio, and many more
