A simple application to quickly get your Hyprand keybinds with much more to come.

⚠️ Hyprkeys is currently in early development and is not ready for use. Not like it can break anything, but you will have wasted your time.

In case you still want to use it, instructions are below: (Looking for testers and contributors, Go is not a language I often work with.)

Installation & Usage

  1. Download Go. You can find it here
  2. Clone this repository with git clone https://github.com/notashelf/hyprkeys
  3. Build the application with go build and run it with ./hyprkeys

Alternatively, open this directory and run go run . to run without compiling.

Project Roadmap

  • Format keybinds better, maybe with a proper table
    • Remove the + in the keybinds that don’t have modifiers
    • Add an extra column to mouse keybinds to match table titles
  • Optionally (–con_vars) parse variables and replace them with their actual value
  • Account for bind flags, that may be passed in any random order
    • Figure out a regex to match the flags
    • Account for line comments in rows
  • Break code into multiple files, move command line parsing to a separate file
  • Command line options
    • Sort output by dispatcher
    • Account for multiple arguments being passed at once
  • Somehow account for keybinds can be set dynamically? (I don’t know how to do this)
    • Add instructions for a pipe to hyprkeys to get the keybinds from
  • Convert sway keybinds to Hyprland keybinds with --convert
    • Possibly more wayland compositors, sway is enough for now.
  • Get more than just keybinds, try and get all config options seperated by section
    • Potentially rename the project
  • Add a way to change keybinds with Hyprkeys after reading them (???)
  • Packaging for AUR and maybe other distros (why would anyone want that)
