Cool: Vysor screen sharing by Koush

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/08/25

Esc: Back button; F1: Menu button; Home: Home button.

Esc: Back button; F1: Menu button; Home: Home button.

Really really cool!

Vysor (by Koushik Dutta aka Koush) lets you not only share and control your Android device screen from your local Chrome browser, but also remotely to others having a Chrome browser with Vysor installed. And Vysor gives you full ADB access to your Android device.

Some links to get started:

To get started:

  1. Enable ADB on your Android phone.
  2. Connect your Android phone over USB to your computer.
  3. Start Vysor.
  4. Connect.
  5. Enjoy.

After connecting over ADB, Vysor sideloads the Android code to share both screen and input. So besides viewing your screen, you can then control it.

Of course your mouse works, including scrolling. And the keyboard for entering text.

There are also some special keys:

  • Esc: Back button;
  • F1: Menu button;
  • Home: Home button.

Programmers’ hardest tasks

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/08/25

It took me a while to find the original illustration (especially as it was copied so often in low quality), but below it is.

Martin Wienold made a great joke based on it last year:

There are only two hard problems

  1. naming things
  2. cache invalidation
  3. off-by-one errors
