[LAU] Using a USB pedalboard to trigger keystrokes

Hello everyone!
   Someone told me, that they were intending to get a pedalboard to trigger 
keystrokes to control some commandline applications. And I've been wondering.
   Does anyone have experience with that? A specific device and what about the 
configuration tools for such tasks? I've been searching the web a little, but 
unfortunately keyboard, pedalboard and the like are very ambiguous search 
terms, so the results were rather unhelpful.
   Any ideas would be welcome. Since I can't solder myself, I'd prefer prebuilt 
solutions. I'm pretty sure, that this would be possible with Arduino based 
solutions, but I'd rather not for a start. :-)
   Warm regards
