Easystroke Gesture Recognition

Easystroke Gesture Recognition

Easystroke is an open source gesture-recognition application. Gestures or strokes are movements that you make with you mouse (or your pen, finger etc.) while holding down a specific mouse button.

Easystroke will execute certain actions if it recognizes the stroke; easystroke can emulate key presses, execute shell commands, hold down modifiers and emulate a scroll wheel. The program was designed with Tablet PCs in mind and can be used effectively even without access to a keyboard.

It aims to be highly configurable while at the same time providing an intuitive user interface.

  • Emulate a scrollwheel
  • Ignore the next stroke
  • Pass the next mouse action to the application (possibly with a modifier held down, so that you can Alt-move or Alt-resize a window without a keyboard)
  • Emulate an additional button that your tablet pen did not even have in the first place
  • Emulate a mouse click by clicking a second button during a stroke
  • Easy to set up and to configure
