The new Stream Deck Emulator (without Stream Deck)

First, this is just an example and it is certainly not meant to be beautiful :rofl:

The new Stream Deck emulator is mainly intended for testing.

However, you can also do other useful things with it. Especially people without a stream deck can use the floating emulator to trigger BTT actions. This works with the mouse of course, but can also be set up to use the keyboard (Advanced Conditions). In the example below the triggers are shown in the upper left corner of the icon. I know this looks terrible :cold_face: But you can make it look beautiful too. :wink: The size of the emulator can be changed and with modifiers more buttons can be displayed.

I am a visual guy. Icons remind me of a macro, which I prefer to trigger with the keyboard without having to remember a shortcut. :man_shrugging:

And you can make it application dependent. Photoshop has one set, when you switch to Illustrator another set comes up, etc. The columns and rows can also be adjusted. But sometimes it's a bit stubborn. It's ok for personal use, but rather unreliable as a concept for a team with technically weaker members. I'm still waiting and hoping for the fixed-floating-windows functionality to finally be able to take over the world... :wink:

looks great! Will be interesting to see what people will create with the floating menu stuff :slight_smile:
If you find bugs with the emulator still tell me about them, as they might also affect the real device

I told you, it can look beautiful too. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Why do you think I opened this post? To remind Andreas what we are really waiting for. :wink:

Honestly, there are actually a few bugs. Emulators that open twice. Buttons that don't appear ... I always find a workaround :slightly_smiling_face:

Ah but if you can create such cool stuff which such a simple emulator - is it even worth it? :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

You scare me :cold_face: Guys, please stop using the emulator right now and talk bad about it. Otherwise Andreas will not develop his masterpiece :joy:

Then just imagine what we could do with the new functionality... Can't wait to get my hands on it...

Don't worry, I'm working on it :slight_smile:


Any progress on the floating menu stuff? I am literally stalling a complete workflow in the wait for that eierlegendewollmilchsau feature... :wink:

It will still take a bit (sorry for moving this a lot, but every time I wanted to finally tackle the floating menu, something got in the way). New (I think now realistic) ETA: end of February.

Lately I have fixed and added many little things that were on my TODO list for v4.0 (which I'll release maybe sometime this weekend). So after that is out I'll focus completely on finishing the floating menus.
