WAYLAND --
WEV is a new Wayland utility developed by Drew DeVault of Wayland notoriety for his work on the Sway i3-inspired compositor and the WLROOTS library.

WEV is a Wayland event viewer similar to X.Org's long-standing xev X event viewer. WEV will provide events received to a Wayland window for helping developers debug situations as well as to help users in case of setting up key-maps and the like.

WEV is being hosted on Source Hut and was announced this morning on the Wayland mailing list.
