This repository contains a C to Rust translation of the GitHub repository rgerganov/footswitch. Although I use footswitch-rs myself to manage my footswitch, the main purpose of its development was to practice Rust. Since I do not possess Apple hardware, I did not test this application on MacOS (unlike rgerganov did with the original footswitch). However, with some modifications, footswitch-rs should run on MacOS as well.
This utility supports PCSensor foot switches with the following
footswitch-rs can also be used together with VIM Clutch.
First, make sure that Rust is installed on your computer.
curl https://sh.rustup.rs -sSf | sh>
Then, clone this repository and use cargo to build it:
git clone https://git.dennispotter.eu/Dennis/footswitch-rs cd footswitch-rs cargo build --release
Optionally, install the application using:
Information about the usage (of a subcommand) can be found by running:
footswitch-rs <subcommand> --help
Several people have reported misbehaviors with the PCsensor footswitch due to hardware issues. If the pedal is continuously sending a keypress without being pressed, then most probably some of the elements do not make good contact with the PCB. Follow the instructions that were posted on original footswitch repository to verify and and fix this.
