    add-keyup-events

    Takes an element, usually an <input> or <textarea> and registers a keyup handler on it that emits named events for special keys. It does enter and esc events by default.

    You can override the events by passing an optional second argument that follows the format: {keyvalue: 'customEventName'}.

    installing

    npm install add-keyup-events

    using

    var addKeyupEvents = require('add-keyup-events');
     
     
    // some input 
    var input = document.create('input');
     
    // pass it our input 
    addKeyupEvents(input);
     
    // Now we can listen for "enter" and "esc" events using the 
    // normal `addEventListener` the browser gives us. 
    input.addEventListener('enter', doSomething, false);

    You can also override the events to listen for whatever you want.

    // some input 
    var input = document.create('input');
     
    // create a custom hash of keycode to event name mappings: 
    var customEvents = {
        65: 'a',
        12: 'enter'
    };
     
    // pass it our input, and our custom events 
    addKeyupEvents(input, customEvents);
     
    // now we can listen for 'a' events and 'enter' events 
    input.addEventListener('a', doSomething, false);
