  1. This is such a better solution then buying $100+ keypads. So ridiculously priced.
  2. U would need second floor to put keyboard on or smt like music keyboardist do with second keyboards
  3. ahhh, I like half get what he is saying but I always get an error somewhere along the line!
  4. What was the other keyboard
  5. Tom Scott is a god amoung men
  6. I know I'm 2+ years late on this, but you should probably look into using a table in lua for your key mappings (also known as a key-value store, hash table, hash map, or unordered dictionary depending on the language)

    https://www.tutorialspoint.com/lua/lua_tables.htm

    It sounds like you already knew that this wasn't the most practical approach but maybe you didn't know exactly what to search for on Google. I hope this helps.

    Always nice to see Taran in a video though!
  7. This is really cool Tarran
  8. Is there a way to run the luamacros script at startup?
  9. is anyone else really impressed by Taran's presenting skills considering he almost never appears in a non vlog video?...
  10. Accounters work on theirs accounting software, and they use macros as well as key combos too. That's what they do. All day.
  11. just imagining him editing this video.

  13. Back when LTT only had one editor
  14. God bless you Taran.
  15. To be honest, I sometimes code in python and I really don't care about messy code. The only time I dislike messy code is when it takes up more time to execute the program that with less messy code. That doesn't happen much to me though.
  16. His macros run macros.
  17. weird flex but ok
  18. this is great, thank you for the work!
  19. Good vid
  20. `noclip'Enter'`
