⚠️Early alpha - this is a hack to solve a problem for me, but maybe we share the same problem!⚠️ This maps buttons presses on a gamepad to simulated keyboard events. 🎮 ➡️ ⌨️ At the moment, it just maps the left / right buttons on Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons to the left and right arrow keys. This means you can use the Joy-Con to control a presentation. That's a good thing.

This is an excellent extension.

This is a good extension that did everything it said it would. It would be nice if you mapped the up/down arrows too, or somehow did something with the joysticks.

You can not use the application, and it does not explain how to use it if I'm doing something wrong ... very bad.
