is an Android app that allows you to remotely control computers.
Limits are not intended!
To start, you should check 2 small things:
You can download the server here.
After starting, your own IP is displayed in the upper left corner. This is important to
connect the smartphone to the PC.
Depending on your Java-installation, you can start the server with ever-remote.jar, or the "start ever-remote.bat" file. In case something wont work, please be sure you installed Java on your computer or update to the newest version. If nothing is working, you can send me an email :-)
You need to create the functions wich are later availible on your phone.
In the first text box you assign a name and in the big field below, the associated command. In the example, we open a playlist with VLC player:
C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe "C:\Users\dreiling\Music\Artist123\playlist.m3u"
The paths can still differ from computer to computer, but in this case the quotation marks are important.
To navigate in VLC itself, we create now the shortcuts for play / pause, forward / back, and volume up / down.
The first character must be a pound # and after that the corresponding key - or key combination.
As an example: play / pause is only the spacebar (space)
As a hotkey example: quiet / louder is controlled by the keys control and up or down
In the keyboard and shortcut area you can find all the supported keys
In addition, you can assign appropriate symbols from a list of default icons:
The possibilities are not limited to multi-media applications of course, you may e.g. also replace or expand the keyboard when working with a graphics tablet or use it as simple hotkey collection next to your desktop.
C:\nircmd\nircmd.exe changesysvolume -5000
To trigger a keystroke or key combination, the first character of the command needs to be a pound #.
For a key combination, the keys are connected with a +.
I decided to release the server software open source for several reasons:
The current code is released under the MIT license and can be found on Github. Not very well documented, but should be self-explanatory and easy to understand. :-)
Any feedback is welcome, whether bug reports, suggestions, appreciation or criticism.
