This plugin manages keyboard shortcuts.

info

This plugin has a Registry containing all registered keyboard shortcuts.

const unsubscribe = player.getRegistry().subscribe(records => {  const shortcuts = records.vKeyboard;});
// ...
unsubscribe();

Defaults#

By default there are no shortcuts, but you can install an additional DefaultKeyboard plugin to get started with the Vime defaults.

  • togglePlayback: space/k to toggle playback.
  • adjustVolume: up arrow and down arrow to control the volume level.
  • seek: left arrow and right arrow to seek forward/backward.
  • toggleMute: m to toggle the muted state of the player.
  • toggleCaptions: c to toggle captions on/off.
  • togglePiP: p to toggle PiP on/off.
  • toggleFullscreen: f to toggle fullscreen on/off.

Setup#

import { Player, Keyboard, DefaultKeyboard } from '@vime-js/complete';
// ...
const player = new Player({  target,  props: {    plugins: [Keyboard, DefaultKeyboard],  },});

Usage#

Create Shortcut#

player.vKeyboard.addShortcut('togglePlayback', {  hint: 'space/k',  keys: [32, 75],  action: () => {    if (!player.canInteract) return;    player.paused = !player.paused;  },});

Update Shortcut#

player.vKeyboard.updateShortcut('togglePlayback', {  hint: 'space',  keys: [32],});

Delete Shortcut#

player.vKeyboard.removeShortcut('togglePlayback');

Access Shortcut via Event#

player.vKeyboard.$on('register', registration => {  const { id, value: shortcut } = registration;
  if (id === 'togglePlayback') {    // ...  }});

Access Shortcut via Registry#

player.vKeyboard.getRegistry().subscribe(shortcuts => {  const shortcut = shortcuts.togglePlayback;
  if (shortcut) {    // ...  }});

Relationships#

ActionDisplay#

If the ActionDisplay plugin is available then all key presses will emit an icon/value in the middle of the player to display the action taken.

Tooltips#

If the Tooltips plugin is available, then the Keyboard plugin will look for any registered Tooltip with a matching id to a keyboard shortcut, if found it will set the hint prop to the keyboard shortcut hint. For example, if a title is "play", it will become "play (space / k)".
