Detect mouse gestures
Simplestroke is a simple utility that detects mouse gestures. It currently detects twelve pre-defined mouse gestures and prints the name of the detected gesture to stdout, if any. The output can then e.g. be used in a simple shell script to execute commands.
Example usages could include closing windows in i3 by drawing a Z over them or other window manipulations, or pausing your music player by drawing a left-to-right line.
