Keymaster – Javascript Library for defining and dispatching keyboard shortcuts

Keymaster is a simple micro-library for defining and dispatching keyboard shortcuts. It has no dependencies. Keymaster has no dependencies and can be used completely standalone. It should not interfere with any JavaScript libraries or frameworks.

Keymaster understands the following modifiers:
, shift, option, , alt, ctrl, control, command, and .

The following special keys can be used for shortcuts:
backspace, tab, clear, enter, return, esc, escape, space,
up, down, left, right, home, end, pageup, pagedown, del, delete
and f1 through f19.

When an INPUT, SELECT or TEXTAREA element is focused, Keymaster doesn’t process shortcuts.

Keymaster should work with any browser that fires keyup and keydown events, and is tested with IE (6+), Safari, Firefox and Chrome.
