Sentence Hot Key for Writers and Bloggers Using Arduino

Introduction

I Like to blog about my work in electronics. But blogging or writing can be frustrating sometimes when you have to type in same keyword or any sentence multiple times in a single blog or article. So I created a small tool using arduino, where you can put hard coded words or sentences in Arduino. If you push a specific button, it will automatically type in the hard coded keyword on your blog or article which will be sent from your arduino to your text editor. Now you don't have to struggle with the copy paste again.

If you are seeing this page directly, then please visit this page for starting from beginning.

Schematic

Keep the below circuit diagram handy and check your breadboard connections with the circuit diagram.

 Steps

(Important Note : The 'keyboard' function that we are using in this code supports only on Arduino Leonardo, Micro, or Due board)

Take your breadboard and create a power stage. We are doing this because we want to circulate power supply all across the breadboard.

And make it easily available on any power rail of the breadboard and we don't have to use multiple jumper wires which makes our breadboard ugly.

(Tip :  Use Nose plier for inserting components on breadboard)

6. Connect -ve of Arduino Leonardo to the -ve power rail of breadboard and +5v to the +ve power rail of breadboard as shown below.

7. The breadboard circuit is now complete. Simply program your arduino with the attached program. Replace the message or keyword in the program with yours. Then open notepad or any editor, and press the buttons whenever you want your arduino to print in.

Code

Copy paste the following code and program your arduino Leonardo with it.
