MagicMirror module for universal touch gesture commander using touchscreen
- Multi-fingers supported. (If your touchpanel or touchframe would support.)
- Available gestures :
- Example :
TAP_1(tapping with 1 finger),
SWIPE_LEFT_2(swiping left with 2 fingers),
PINCH_IN_3(pinching-in with 3 fingers)
ROTATE_CCW, only 2 fingers are recognizable. (sorry, I’m not good at math.)
- Example :
- Available commands :
- Emitting custom notification
- Executing shell script/command directly
- Executing method of module(s)
- Different gestures and commands with
- Dynamic configuration : Other module easily add gestureCommand for itself by notification
Aha interesting Sean
Will be trying it with https://github.com/dvbit/Kinect-Mouse-Swipe-C-Module
I need to upgrade the c code to at least catch two hands
@dvbit intersting trial. this module can capture only one touch point also. I think u might need to emit “touch” events instead of “mouse” events.( but common onclick and onrelease event will be compatible)
@Sean Uhm .If I understand your touch plugin intercepts “tap” events in the OS.
If that is the case I have to find a way to simulate those in my C program.
Currently the program uses the X11 simulation functions to emit fake clicks and movement events
Is this the case?
It is really a pity that all kinect libraries of projects such as openni are really old as it is hard to find documentation. harder updated documentation.
Ideally the kinect would have a “Tuio” driver for X server so mecoming for all intent and purposes a multi touch device.
I have tried to revive that too before this was developed.
I will give it a new try.
i used default touch events of browser.(IE and Safari doesn’t support but we are commonly use electron-chromium)
I don’t know anything about kinnect library, so i don’t know whether your code can emit specific event. anyway if possible, it can be used together.
@Sean Ok. I think that then if it intercepts browser touch events it will be really possible.
Right now I am trying to compile tuiokinect
That would add full multitouch air gestures… so would be really fantastic with your plugin
@Sean Hi, I’d like to get this module working with a HyperPixel4 touchscreen. Unfortunately I obtain an error when changing modes that stops the module from working. Is this the correct place to post to obtain help?
Also, I have a degree in applied maths. Perhaps I can help with the rotation maths?
What kind of error did you meet? Post a issue on github repository with more detailed information. I’ll inspect.

@Sean Thank you for sharing this great module.
I am not very good at programming, but playing around a little helped me understand.
However I am wondering if it is possible to create more buttons?
Is there a way to modify the code (if necessary just quick and dirty) or do you think I can run multiple instances at the same time?
And one more question: is it possible to change the displayed name to an icon?
Thanks a lot.
