Works better than Synergy and its free & open source! You can download the compiled app under releases when you click on the github link.

Actually completely open source. Full cross platform support. I get it to work without any effort and can have multiple network connections per computer and no trouble across linux and windows. No mac or bsd to test.

Hi, dude. How did you installed it on Linux? I still can't do it

All the (useful) features of Synergy without any of the crap added by Symless over the last few years. What more could you ask for? Highly recommended, it works great for me.

A good example of FOSS.
Works like a charm, cross platform done right with easy thanks to the use of Flatpak.

Works like a charm! It is definitely worth a try, if you search for a simple and free (!) alternative to synergy or sharemouse etc.

It is a fork of the original Synergy, which makes it a perfect alternative to it.

Even better, they take out the comercialization of the software. I paid a license of Synergy, only to find they created new more licenses for new versions and never fixed the bugs we had in the old Synergy. They just want easy money.

I tested it around mid 2019. It has no new features on top of Synergy 1.x. In fact it has less features. While Synergy seemed to solve (to some extent) the issues they had with dead keys, dead keys simply don't work on Barrier, and that is a full stop to people that writes in languages other than english.

It is a good program but it doesn't support for Windows 10 so can you please make this program support windows 10. I give five stars anyway because it is good.

It might have been updated since you posted this, but it is working fine for me now on Win10.
