strokerouter

A browser-side keystroke event router.

strokerouter

strokerouter lets you hook functions up to keystrokes. It has no dependencies.

With Browserify:

var StrokeRouter = require('strokerouter');

var docStrokeRouter = StrokeRouter(document);

// Single key routes.
docStrokeRouter.routeKeyUp('escape', null, function escape() {
  console.log('Escape pressed.');
});
docStrokeRouter.routeKeyUp('u', null, function u() {
  console.log('U pressed.');
});

// Unroute a keystoke so that there is no longer a response to it.
docStrokeRouter.unrouteKeyUp('u', null);

Now when the user hits Esc or U, a message will be logged to the console.

See an example running here: examples/browserify.

With script tags:

<script src="strokerouter-dist.min.js"></script>
<script>
    var docStrokeRouter = StrokeRouter(document);

    // Single key routes.
    docStrokeRouter.routeKeyUp('escape', null, function escape() {
      console.log('Escape pressed.');
    });
    docStrokeRouter.routeKeyUp('u', null, function u() {
      console.log('U pressed.');
    });

    // Unroute a keystoke so that there is no longer a response to it.
    docStrokeRouter.unrouteKeyUp('u', null);        
</script>

See an example running here: examples/basic.html.
