Tool for Programming QMK Key Codes
« on: Mon, 15 February 2021, 12:00:57 »
If you're interested in programming non-standard keys and/or macros, this is a helpful tool called Key Codes from programmer Many Tricks. "Key Codes is a little utility that displays the key code, unicode value, and modifier keys state for any key combination you press. If you're a developer, this might be useful to you." (I have no involvement, just found this helpful.)

Just to add on, Linux users might be interested in the "xev" command.

To monitor all input events:

Code: [Select]
xev
To monitor just keyboard events:

Code: [Select]
xev -event keyboard

Thanks, I'm looking to re-purpose several keys to Copy & Paste.  I know about Cont+C & Control+V, but when you're using both sometimes several hundred times in a row, this will save time.
