Zephyros Demo

Usage

Include node-zephiros in your script and you're ready to go!

var Zephyros = require('node-zephyros');

var z = new Zephyros();

z.bind('t', ['Cmd', 'Shift']).clipboardContents().then(function(clipboard){
  console.log("clipboard: ", clipboard);
});

API

Starting a chain

There are three types of methods that can initiate a new chain:

bind
bind( key<String>, modifier<Array> )
Listen to a particular key combination and fire the chain every time such shortcut is triggered.

z.bind('t', ['Cmd', 'Shift']).then(function(){
  console.log('Hey, you pressed t+⌘⌃');
});

listen
listen( event<String> )
Listen to a particular event and fire the chain every time this event occurs. A comprehensive list of events is available here

z.listen('window_created').then(function(){
  console.log('Hey, you created a new window!');
});

api
api()
Manually trigger a chain.

z.api().then(function(){
  console.log('Fired immediately only once.');
});

When a new chain is initialised, you can use the API to interact with Windows, Apps, Screens or Utils.
