I got the module up and running. I forked shbatm’s module and changed the method of how to detect a swipe. It is not perfect, yet, but it works for me.
There is still more work to do, but I thought I will share it with you already, so you can try it. It works with the MMM-Pages module.
I will continue working on it the next days. Feel free to share your experience with me, as well as ideas for improvements.
It took me a while to “learn” the right technique to swipe. I put my hand in front of one sensors (try to make form a flat surface with your hand), stay there for about 400ms (sounds weird, sorry) and then swipe from there over the other sensor. Just practice a little bit. The swipe detection is not trivial.
