I automated half of my typing

Compress This is a tool designed to create typing shortcuts automatically based on your own writing. It’s primarily used for email and slack communication. The tool analyzes a corpus of text and suggests shortcuts that can help save characters while typing. It also generates configuration files for Autokey, a Linux program that implements keyboard shortcuts. Surprisingly, very short and frequently used words like “the” are at the top of the list, rather than longer phrases. The tool allows you to customize abbreviations based on your preferences and generate memorable abbreviations for different phrases. Plurals and similar words are also considered when creating abbreviations. To use the tool, follow the provided instructions to install dependencies and input your corpus of text. Note that Autokey is only supported on Linux with X11.
