I've just created a small web app that integrates to some command line tools, like xbindkeys, xdotool and xwininfo to allow us to toggle existing windows through global hotkeys:

Please help bringing back the Konsole background-mode:

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=320783

Just recently I found a great feature in Konsole I wasn't aware of after  more than a decade using KDE and Konsole: background-mode. "konsole --background-mode" allow us to toggle its visibility with a global shortcut (Ctrl+Shift+F12 by default).

This allows us to serve our daemons that doesn't run in background (think of "rails server", "grails run-app", "guard", etc) to run in a Konsole window and only toggle it when you're interesting in seeing the application server during development or tests failing messages, for instance, instead of having the Konsole to show up in the windows' list when you press Alt+Tab.

I've been trying to achieve something like this in the last few days using kdocker, ksystraycmd, alltray, etc. None of them supports assigning a global shortcut to the application and kdocker has some bugs that will prevent my keyboard from working in the Konsole window sometimes. ksystraycmd will only work a few times but after it stops working it will only work again with konsole if I log-off and log-in again...

This konsole option just works wonderfully! Please, don't let it die.

P.S.: what I'd really love would be a native option in kwin that would allow us to send any window to the background (don't show up in the Alt+Tab list nor in the task bar) and restore with a custom keystroke.
