Example use case:

Click on something in the destkop (like a bar or a toolkit) -> runs a script that sets up fuzzel with some options -> clicks on a option -> script runs something associated with that option.

This has been brought up before, and isn't super hard to do. With fuzzel's current use cases however, I don't see much point - it's meant to be keyboard driven.

Let me give you a more concrete example:

I currently usa yambar, and have found myself wanting to map multiple scripts to the same particle. What I've come up with is: click on the particle, and bemenu pops up with the scripts as options. I click on the script I want, and it runs.

A similiar setup could be done with any desktop widget.

As much as I like the command line and doing everything with the keyboard only, I've personally found extremelly difficult to completely eliminate mouse use when navigating the computer.

If it wouldn't be too difficult, I believe it would make fuzzel an overall more flexible tool. I won't push it further, however. Feel free to close the issue if you'd rather keep it as is.

mouse support would be definitely useful.

99.9% of the times I use my laptop, it's keyboard driven. But it would be useful to have this for using fuzzel with a mouse very ocasionally.

This is also very handy with --dmenu in response to clicking on status-bar items. I really like fuzzels's visual implementation, rendering, etc, and this reusability via scripts would be a chocolate coating on this!

With fuzzel's current use cases however, I don't see much point - it's meant to be keyboard driven. 99.9% of the times I use my laptop, it's keyboard driven. But it _would_ be useful to have this for using fuzzel with a mouse very ocasionally. This is also very handy with `--dmenu` in response to clicking on status-bar items.
