    Look great for certain use cases. Not mine though.

    I have no idea what on earth anyone would use this for in real-world use. But it does look very interesting. It would be nice if they had some updated working code to install and play with. The current code from their git repo does nothing for me. I couldn't get it working. :tongue:

    Really? Have you got Ruby-dev installed?

    I didn't try it as I don't use Xemacs or Vim. Gimme a plugin for Sublime Text and I'd give a whirl...

    Great for documentation and making nerd scenes in movies.

    The possibilities seem pretty interesting - fundamentally, the more mouse I use, the more time it takes me to do things *in general*, so unless there's very specific gui only use cases I don't see this being particularly useful for me either.

    I did install it to have a play, ran into a couple of errors too (ubu 14.04) just trying to get into the docs, so it's back in the pile of broken toys in the corner for now :p
