github.com/tolga9009/sidewinde - Get the macro keys on my old G105 keyboard working, set them up to just send ctrl+F13...ctrl+F18 ...free

github.com/autokey/autokey - stick actual commands on those buggers ...free

Setting up a "write iso-8601 timestamp" key so I don't have to keep keyboard smashing for yet another untitled.png in discord ...priceless

Example sidewinderd config for G1:
<Macro>
<KeyBoardEvent Down="true">29</KeyBoardEvent>
<DelayEvent>10</DelayEvent>
<KeyBoardEvent Down="true">183</KeyBoardEvent>
<DelayEvent>10</DelayEvent>
<KeyBoardEvent Down="false">183</KeyBoardEvent>
<DelayEvent>10</DelayEvent>
<KeyBoardEvent Down="false">29</KeyBoardEvent>
</Macro>

...it needs a minimal delay or it won't always pick up the keypress

Follow

Because I'm setting it up again ... save as date in firefox autokey script

output = system.exec_command("date --iso-8601=seconds")
keyboard.send_keys("<ctrl>+s")
time.sleep(0.2)
keyboard.send_keys(output)
time.sleep(0.2)
keyboard.send_keys("<enter>")
