globalShortcut

@tauri-apps/api / globalShortcut

Module: globalShortcut

Register global shortcuts.

This package is also accessible with window.__TAURI__.globalShortcut when tauri.conf.json > build > withGlobalTauri is set to true.

The APIs must be allowlisted on tauri.conf.json:

{
"tauri": {
"allowlist": {
"globalShortcut": {
"all": true // enable all global shortcut APIs
}
}
}
}

It is recommended to allowlist only the APIs you use for optimal bundle size and security.
