Keyborg ⌨️?

Keyborg is a library that tracks the state of current keyboard input on a web page through focus events.

It does not do anything invasive to the DOM but provides an event subscription system that allows users to choose how they want to react to changes in focus.

Getting started


npm install --save keyborg
# Yarn
yarn add keyborg


import { createKeyborg } from "keyborg";

// initializes keyborg on the current window
const keyborg = createKeyborg(window);

// This is called every time the keyboard input state changes
const handler = (isUsingKeyboard) => {
  if (isUsingKeyboard) {
    document.body.setAttribute("data-is-keyboard", "true");
  } else {



Pretty simple currently, you only need to know about theese commands

  • npm install – install dependencies
  • npm run build – builds the library
  • npm run format:fix – runs prettier to format code
  • npm run lint:fix – runs eslint and fixes issues
