    No not BigLet, but emoji characters. You can type in this really fast using a script I made for AutoKey. The script is on their wiki under the advanced contributes. https://github.com/autokey/autokey/wiki but also here:

    It's not that plural on Linux, but what I have found is that Autokey from https://github.com/autokey/autokey/wiki, https://github.com/autokey/autokey/releases/ is a great program to have. It supports both text macros and scripts. The scripts run on Python. I use it for all kinds of things such as a password manager, ssh manager, ip manager, link manager and more.
  • Mouse double-clicking, AHK.
    I found this with a quick DDG search: https://github.com/autokey/autokey I have zero experience using it, but it looks like it has what you want.
  • Ex Windows users what do you miss?
    What about autokey? https://github.com/autokey/autokey (I use it to have emacs keybindings in more places, but looks pretty flexible)

    xbindkeys also required the use of xdotool which also doesn't work under wayland, but it seems that there is a replacement in ydotool and wtype. There is also autokey as an xdotool alternative which seems to be based on python.
  • I created a (Linux) script to easily type Unicode math everywhere.

    So, I though about how to get this feature system-wide and found a solution in AutoKey. I created a script that autogenerates all necesary macros:
  • Looking for a clipboard manager with custom hotkeys and installable via apt-get
    reddit.com/r/pop_os | 2021-08-11
    I really like clipboard-indicator, and recently contributed some review time & code to get (jpg/png) images working in it. What if you use something else to change the keys? For example [autokey](https://github.com/autokey/autokey) ?
  • autokey is it still working ?
    reddit.com/r/Warframe | 2021-07-30
    Yes, you can download it from here, though I don't know why you're asking this on the Warframe subreddit.

  • Venting about "mouse clipboard" which tripled my productivity

    Use something like Autokey (or create your own script using xdotool / ydotool + wl-clipboard, etc.) to get things done even faster.

    As an alternative to autohotkey there's Auto key.

    We are working on improving our documentation. In particular, you may want to take a look at https://github.com/autokey/autokey/wiki/Emitting-Keyboard-Events . Among other things, it covers why you should almost always avoid using `keyboard.send_key()`.
