As a programmer, it is very common that your favorite editor makes use of the F-keys but at the same time, you also want to be able to control the display brightness, for example in VLC. You can do that with Palua easily: it switches the function buttons depending on the program you are currently using. Fantastic!

I have used and loved Palua for a long time. But it no longer supports the best feature (switching fn mode based on frontmost app) on 10.11 (El Capitan). It possibly broke earlier but I actually "lost" the app for awhile during a system changeout. Once I really needed it again, I was dismayed to find the app was pulled from the appstore and the developer's website is no longer available. Palua appears to be a discontinued app. [Delete rant about crappy appstore interface especially for finding previous purchased pulled apps.]

The best alternative I've found is FNable (also appstore only). It's a little more expensive than Palua was (think a cup of coffee), but it works on El Cap and has all the functions Palua had and adds an interfaceless mode for switching during gaming, etc.

Spark. It's free. It's simple. It works in El Capitan. That being said, Palua works just fine for me in El Capitan.
