I am doing some research on IDE usage patterns. My research requires that I capture all keyboard and mouse events. Is there any support for this in Intellij. I have looked at code that used to work with Eclipse and wrote something that would give me actions after they were decoded. That is I could not get access to raw events and continue processing the event. I was unable to find any type of support in Netbeans so I have abandoned both of those IDEs for this research.
A research project that did some pioneering work in this area was Hackystat if that helps provide some context. Hackystat looked at the IDE as a telemetry source. Time has moved on and the APIs used and the approach can be redone with REST and updated interfaces to IDEs.
