GNU Xnee

Records, distributes, and replays X11 protocol data

Xnee is a suite of programs that can record, replay and distribute user actions under the X11 environment. Think of it as a robot that can imitate the job you just did. Xnee can be used to:

  • Automate tests — nightly automatic regression tests
  • Demonstrate programs — record and replay a user interaction with your system
  • Distribute actions — teacher's actions can be sent to all student's desktops
  • Record and replay 'macro' — Tie a key modifier combination (e.g using xrebind) to replay a recorded session. The macro is WM- and program independent.
  • Retype a file — When testing an editor, Xnee can type in the content of a file. This can be compared with the original.
