The best control to record shortcuts on macOS

  • Objective-C framework developed with Swift in mind
  • Easily stylable
  • Translated into 22 languages
  • Supports macOS Accessibility
  • Thoroughly documented and tested
  • Global and Local shortcuts for both key up and key down actions
  • Mac App Store approved
  • End-to-end Interface Builder integration

What is inside

The framework comes with:

  • SRRecorderControl to render and capture user input
  • SRRecorderControlStyle for custom styling
  • SRShortcut that represents a shortcut model
  • SRGlobalShortcutMonitor to turn the shortcut into an action by registering a global hot key
  • SRAXGlobalShortcutMonitor to handle any kind of keyboard event via Accessibility
  • SRLocalShortcutMonitor for manual handling in the responder chain and NSEvent monitors
  • SRShortcutController for smooth Cocoa Bindings and seamless Interface Builder integration
  • SRShortcutValidator to check validity of the shortcut against Cocoa key equivalents and global hot keys
  • NSValueTransformer and NSFormatter subclasses for custom alterations

In Swift:

import ShortcutRecorder

let defaults = NSUserDefaultsController.shared
let keyPath = "values.shortcut"
let options = [NSBindingOption.valueTransformerName: .keyedUnarchiveFromDataTransformerName]

let beepAction = ShortcutAction(keyPath: keyPath, of: defaults) { _ in
    NSSound.beep()
    return true
}
GlobalShortcutMonitor.shared.addAction(beepAction, forKeyEvent: .down)

let recorder = RecorderControl()
recorder.bind(.value, to: defaults, withKeyPath: keyPath, options: options)

recorder.objectValue = Shortcut(keyEquivalent: "⇧⌘A")

In Objective-C:

#import <ShortcutRecorder/ShortcutRecorder.h>

NSUserDefaultsController *defaults = NSUserDefaultsController.sharedUserDefaultsController;
NSString *keyPath = @"values.shortcut";
NSDictionary *options = @{NSValueTransformerNameBindingOption: NSKeyedUnarchiveFromDataTransformerName};

SRShortcutAction *beepAction = [SRShortcutAction shortcutActionWithKeyPath:keyPath
                                                                  ofObject:defaults
                                                             actionHandler:^BOOL(SRShortcutAction *anAction) {
    NSBeep();
    return YES;
}];
[[SRGlobalShortcutMonitor sharedMonitor] addAction:beepAction forKeyEvent:SRKeyEventTypeDown];

SRRecorderControl *recorder = [SRRecorderControl new];
[recorder bind:NSValueBinding toObject:defaults withKeyPath:keyPath options:options];

recorder.objectValue = [SRShortcut shortcutWithKeyEquivalent:@"⇧⌘A"];

Integration

The framework supports module maps, explicit linking is not required: simply import ShortcutRecorder / #import <ShortcutRecorder/ShortcutRecorder.h>

Releases

3.3.0 (2020-07-12) - 2020-08-04T15:41:18

Improvements:

  • Better German localization by @J-rg
  • Better Italian localization by @ildede
  • SRAXGlobalShortcutMonitor defaults to listening only; new initializer allows to alter that
  • SRAXGlobalShortcutMonitor does not uses CGEvent instead of NSEvent API as the latter is not thread safe
  • Layout guide constraints for SRRecorderControl size are replaced with custom intrinsicContentSize
