Default Bug#636262: ITP: kbdd -- Per-window keyboard layout switching daemon for X

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Stanislav Maslovski <stanislav.maslovski@gmail.com>

* Package name : kbdd
Version : 0.6
Upstream Author : Alexander V. Vershilov <alexander.vershilov@gmail.com>
* URL : https://github.com/qnikst/kbdd
* License : GPL
Programming Lang: C
Description : Per-window keyboard layout switching daemon for X

KBDD stands for keyboard daemon. It is a simple keyboard layout
switching program, which is designed to run in an X11 session and
remember keyboard layouts on a per-window basis. That can be very
handy for a user of a non-US keyboard who does not want to jump
through layouts back and forth while typing in terminals (mostly in
latin) and some kind of chat in her native language. Another useful
thing about KBDD is its D-Bus notification support — it can emit
signals on layout change, thus, making it possible to create layout
indicator widgets in such window managers as awesome, for example.

Err, I guess it watches for the currently active window, and on switch,
switches the whole X server keyboard layout? That's a costly approach,
when you can much more efficiently redirect the keymap updates, to send
the appropriate keymap update to the appropriate windows just once and
be done with it without having to watch window switch.

Not everyone uses gnome/kde/etc.

Yes. The target group of users of this software are those who are
aware of xxkb and friends, but want a tool that also works with
nonreparenting window managers.

Tell me when you have it programmed and ready for use, I will be happy
to package it for Debian.

Ok. It might make sense to add something like this to the package
description.
