Show off your keyboard shortcuts.

KeyLimePie displays your keyboard shortcuts in a subtle, easy-to-understand view.

- Hold your modifier keys to show your shortcuts longer.
- Move the key view around by dragging it.
- Show all keystrokes if needed.
- It looks good in light or dark mode.
- There will always be a free version of the app.

KeyLimePie also can show a log view of your shortcuts so that viewers can more easily follow along.

Privacy comes first.
- The app does not collect user data.
- The app does not communicate with any external servers.
- Keystrokes in password fields are not passed to the app by macOS, and therefore are not displayed by the app.

What’s New

Version 0.7

- The escape key will now display "esc" instead of the symbol for escape.
- Symbols on the number row will be displayed as symbols when shift is held, rather than the number or minus/equals.
- The keypad enter key will now display as the symbol for keypad enter.

Just what I needed.

Does what it claims, shows shortcuts in a readable and location-customizable way. I appreciate the lime color tint as it makes the view more friendly and fun.

(The following has been addressed in an update!)
One suggestion I would like to see implemented is the ability to set how long each popup lasts for, as it may be too quick for people to read when sharing my screen.

Thanks a Bunch!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. Please try the latest version (v0.6), which has sliders in the menu bar menu to control how long the keys will display after key up, as well as how quickly they will fade away.

Cool Idea (w/ suggestion)

This is a great idea, and executed perfectly! Initially had some problems where the pop-up wouldn't disappear but that resolved automatically after 10 minutes of download

Suggestion: The disappearing rate isn't always consistent (sometimes it's normal and sometimes it quickly disappears). This mainly happens when I continue to type after a shortcut - the pop-up immediately disappears. It'll then immediately disappear after the immediate next shortcut used (even if I don't type afterwards), after which it then resets back to normal. It can be disorienting. I would love for the pop-up to be consistent even when typing afterwards!

Hi, would change my review if 3 things changed:

1. when I press single keys, I would like that to show.

2. It would be good to have an option to "start a t log in" within the app.

3. Once the app is closed and re opened, the position where the shortcuts show is forgoten. Would be nice if it remembered where you last placed it.

Otherwise, good.
***Update below, upped this to 5 stars

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback.

1. To display single keys instead of shortcuts, uncheck "Shortcuts Only" in the menu bar menu.

2 & 3. These are now in v0.5, which should be released and through the review process shortly.
