Just for fun: Is there a way to detect and react to key presses outside the focus (or when minimized).

Compose can react to any state change in your app, so this question really just boils down to "can I detect key presses outside a window with Java". Java's default APIs don't allow this AFAIK, but with some JNI it should be possible. However, that's way outside the scope of this slack channel.

Ya thanks, I was just asking this for fun :)

I was able to do this years ago with a java library. It used JNI I believe. I looked, but can’t find it, but I found it at the time with Google searches. Maybe there is something better now 🙂

I'll try to build my own in Kotlin/Multiplatform for Windows+Linux and probably JVM too 😃

@spierce7 its here if you'd like to check out, will work on it slowly for other platforms as I go. Love to hear feedback :)
