A text replacement and hotkey utility
AutoKey works by sending and receiving keyboard events via the X server. It supports multiple X interfaces and should therefore be compatible with virtually any version of Linux running an X server. Full unicode support is provided and it should in theory work with any keyboard layout.
- Phrases can be collected into folders.
- Folders can also be assigned abbreviations and hotkeys, allowing you choose a phrase from the folder on entering the abbreviation/hotkey
- Regular expressions can be used to filter windows by their title, to exclude hotkeys/abbreviations from triggering in certain applications
- Phrases or folders can be attached to the tray icon menu, allowing you to select them without assigning a hotkey or abbreviation
- A predictive mode can be enabled on a phrase-by-phrase basis. AutoKey will then suggest matching phrase(s) as you type a configurable number of characters from the beginning of the phrase
- AutoKey can track your usage patterns and present the most frequently used items at the top of the phrase menu
- A plugin framework provides the ability to extend AutoKey
- An import facility allows users of AutoKey 0.40.x to import their existing abbreviations
- A popup similar to Tracker, where you can enter an abbreviation and have it autocompleted for you. Can be activated using a configurable hotkey or by clicking on the tray icon.
