We will see. Maybe we can come up with a small tool that turns MIDI
events into keystrokes and then use keyboard shortcuts in dt.
@houz I already tried something like that. I have connected my XBOX 360 gamepad and mapped the keyboard keys with a program called AntiMicro. It does an awesome job of assigning complex sets when we combine the trigger and button actions together in the gamepad. This has made my lighttable work easy.
Now I can easily browse through 1000s of images from a wedding shoot, assign tags to important photos, provide label to the photo that needs to be retouched in GIMP, assign star rating from 1 to 5, and reject the unwanted ones (like out of focus shots, etc) without using my keyboard and mouse. It's like virtually playing with the photos that I took using a gamepad.
But I wanted to simplify the work in Darkroom module as well. But unfortunately there are no keyboard shortcuts for the actual developing modules. I'm talking about increasing and decreasing the slider values. Yes, there are no shortcuts for that which basically is the reason for creating this post.
And yes, first we could try creating something like mapping the keyboard+mouse keys against MIDI controller and then we can think about integrating to DT. As far as I know, AntiMicro doesn't support MIDI controller.
