ReMoot - the pseudo-universal remote control wrapper
ReMoot is written in perl and is a command wrapper for a number of media
programs running on GNU/Linux systems. ReMoot can control all apps listed below. By mapping your multimedia keyboard to remoot you can control ALL of these apps with the same keys. You can also remote control ReMoot over the web using the rewwwoot client.
ReMoot handles multiple running and supported apps by asking ALSA and DCOP what is going on and tries to guess which app you mean when you issue a command using an clever algorithm we call "Do the Right Thing"TM.
Installation and usage are both very easy. ReMoot plays REALLY nice with key-mapping programs like LinEAK and Keytouch.
Please contact us if you have ideas, find bugs or heaps of nicely
documented code to donate. Hugs and fanmail are also welcome. And money.
We are hosted over at SourceForge. Head over there to download the packages, check out the wiki and post insightful comments on the forum.
Thanx for using ReMoot!
