Hi all, 
I received some comment to one of "my" apps, FluXX Complensator (Y), 
where a user asks for hotkey support. I never thought about such feature, 
but it clearly makes sense. 
But as mentioned several times before, I won't invest more time into those 
apps, that's why I am still looking for maintainers for them...

However an idea came up whilst giving the feature of hotkeys some thought: 
implementing such feature for a single app sounds more or less straight 
forward, but two issues arise: 
1.) a hotkeys feature does require a configuration option, this would bloat all 
apps implementing such feature and 
2.) separate implementations of such feature in the apps certainly leads to 
incompatibility and conflicts. 
So I came up with this suggestion: 

A separate "hotkeys" app which implements a hotkey support for owncloud 
in general. It offers a configuration section where users can modify 
hotkeys, but mostly it should come with a few templates, collections of 
hotkeys for typical apps, where a template should have a persistent logic 
There are ready-to-use javascript libraries for hotkey support. In case of a 
single app implementing such feature the additional library might be 
To me this sounds like a great JuniorJob opportunity!
