I’ve recently switched to a Razer Ornata Chroma, a “mecha-membrane” keyboard, which comes with individually controllable RGB-LED backlights for each key. There are a few GUI tools that let you configure the lighting settings on Linux already, like RazerGenie or RazerCommander, but I really wanted to control it from the command-line and Beehive instead: imagine your keyboard indicating new notifications and events by a cheer- and colorful illumination. go-razer Naturally, this meant firing up my editor and hacking on a new Go library, which I’ve aptly named go-razer.
