N.A.N.Y. 2014 / Nany 2014 Entry - Early Alpha - JsRoboKey
« on: September 14, 2013, 12:01 AM »
I am announcing JsRoboKey as one of my entries to NANY 2014. Right now it is pre-alpha but it's got some starter features similar to AutoHotkey.
I hope to get version 1.0 in by the new year!

In case you want some teasers, the app sits in the tray (similar to ahk) and will run a script. Here are some examples (go to for more readable format):

Example Scripts

###### sendKeys()
A simple script might look like this:
   //run notepad, wait a little bit for it to open, then send some keystrokes'notepad');
    rk.sendKeys('[email protected]#$%^&*()');

###### addGlobalHotkey()
Or even better, trigger to run notepad after a certain hotkey!
rk.addGlobalHotkey('Meta+Alt+N', function(){'notepad');
(Meta) means the Windows key

###### getForegroundWindow() and getWindowText()
And demonstrating some new functionality, this script will run notepad and wait for it to open
function fgWinMatches(winTitle){
    var hwnd = rk.getForegroundWindow();
    var title = rk.getWindowText(hwnd);
    if (title.toLowerCase().indexOf(winTitle.toLowerCase()) >= 0){
       return {hwnd:hwnd,title:title};
       return false;

function winWait(winTitle, callback){
   var match = fgWinMatches(winTitle);
   if (match === false){
         winWait(winTitle, callback);
winWait('notepad', function(match){
    rk.sendKeys('Hello World');
###### onClipboardChange()
A new feature onClipboardChange() which sets up a callback when the clipboard changes, think of the possibilities!
    if (typeof(data) != 'string'){ return; }
    if (data.indexOf('foobar') >= 0){
       rk.alert('foobar on clipboard: ' + data);

###### onKeyPress() onKeyRelease()
*unstable* not yet in master (hotfix_keylisten branch)
   if (key == 'F7'){
     rk.sendKeys('Hello World F7');

###### trayMsg()
demonstrating a few of the latest features as well,
after the tray bubble message gets shown, the callback gets called when the user clicks the tray message
rk.trayMsg('Hi','Check if JsRoboKey executable file exists...', function(){
   alert(__APPFILEPATH__ + ' exists: ' +

rk.trayMsg('About','Click to open the JsRoboKey website', function(){


Here's the deal, this sucker is in pre-alpha, but a basic script such as the one below is working!
Code: Javascript [Select]
  1. //run notepad, wait a little bit for it to open, then send some keystrokes
  3.     rk.sleep(700);
  4.     rk.sendKeys('[email protected]#$%^&*()');

I need Qt C++ developers to just dive right in and start adding features. The goal is basically to make the power of AutoHotkey cross-platform and using the javascript language.

Check it out, and let me know if you are interested in helping.

In fact I could pop it up at ever 15 minute interval, 10:00-10:15, 10:15-10:30, 10:30-10:45
forcing me to enter what I did for the last 15 minutes

Wow, very useful!
Do you have any plans to open-source this? Then I could modify it to work with 15 minute increments somehow.

« on: July 07, 2013, 07:14 PM »
So at my new job, we log our task every 15 minutes.
I was wondering if there was a desktop application to Keep track of each 15 minutes what you are doing, and then add up your times per task for the day.
I did this in jquery and html but was interested in a native app.

« on: May 16, 2013, 01:40 PM »
What do you think made that software back in the 90s to go out of business, where you put ads on your desktop?
Users would get a program that moved the mouse and clicked the ads. (iforget what it was called) but it soon went out of business.

Wow, i'm pleased to know you use it.
I am not sure where the source code is as of now, but if you come up with it, i'd be happy to take a look.

FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: CZB pack
« on: April 10, 2013, 12:17 AM »
WOW, thanks for this, I just tried it out, i think the tm timer is extremly useful, i would be interested in synchronization using an online server for timers that woudl for example email yourself
what do you think?

Can someone help me write a plugin? I don't understand any of the example plugins.

I want to write a plugin that lets you automatically search google when you press a hotkey (for example alt+g) with whatever text is being shown.

I also want to write a plugin that lets me find a particular window that is open since i always have about 20-25
For example you open FARR type w <window name> and it will jump to that open window (faster than alt-tab if you know what you are looking for)


now there is a program called focalfilter (
that does this, it would be nice if there were a system tray interface and you could block more than 1 set of websites at a time

I am a freelancer so I get distracted easily on facebook. Can someone write an app to block a website for a certain amount of minutes. That way i could do work for 2 hours while i disable

Ideally i'd like it to sit in the system tray and have a right click menu block website, and you type it in or choose it from recent list and then choose how many minutes you want it blocked.

This might be able to be accomplished by editing the windows hosts file and then re-editing it when the time is up.

Ok well thank you to a special friend who donated a few hours of his time to phonegap,
I have now come up with the alpha/beta version of android client!!!

check out my brand new android time tracking app --
test out with: username: test116 password: test116

(if you use this for production, make sure you double check time logs, this is beta software)

with a todo list?

Ok originally that is what I was thinking of doing, selling the source code for private installs.
In the mean time, I have instead received advice for charging a monthly fee (which I plan on implementing in the next few months at

Depending on the price or interest, I still may sell the source for private installation, but the problem is what licensing do I put on the source code, and what about upgrades? Since the main site ( will be updated frequently with added features, you may find you want those features.

Since the original post,  I've changed the web server to linode, I have purchased a security certificate, i have paid programmers and testers to help get on the road and I am in the middle of working on an windows/macos/linux time-tracker that synchronizes to the server while it is online, and still tracks your time while you are offline (the current GUI only works while online).

In short, in about 3 months, I will have a monthly payment plan to use the secure with all the updates and features.

As far as a private installation, you might want to contact me about rights and what you intend to use it for and perhaps we can come up with something. ([email protected]).

Notes* I am also looking to do an android and iphone app to also monitor offline usage.


if you know php you can use dompdf to convert html to pdf
comes in handy
example code below:

   $contents = '<html><head></head><body><h2>Your Html Here</h2><center>hi</center></body></html>';
   set_time_limit (0);
   $dompdf = new DOMPDF();
   //$dompdf->set_paper('paper', 'landscape');
   $dompdf->stream("Invoice", array("Attachment" => false));

i used it to generate invoices at

Good ol notepad++ and Chrome ctrl-shift-j for debugging for me.

Wow, nice resource.  I'll be looking at this later; especially the Regex's; been wanting to learn that for a while, especially as it seems a pre-requisite for Linux hackery, and I never bothered to learn much beyond the basics.
Thanks to you and Josh  :Thmbsup:

I have been using RegexBuddy for several years now, a must tool for regular expressions worth every penny i spent on it, that will teach it to you by example.

Editing the time (minutes worked) should modify the End Time, after putting "10" for 10 minutes, look over the end-time and confirm if it is actually 10 minutes. If you are satisfied, press enter

Hey I'm pretty sure this is an IE8 javascript engine problem, meaning if you allow your computer to update to IE9 everything should be fine.
My computer just upgraded automatically so I can't test it out on IE8 again.

Is there a reason you want IE8? Or just haven't thought about it?

Because if there IS, I can work on a fix for it, if not, I won't worry about it.
