Is there a way for us to link variables to specific keyboard events?

Umm I don't think you can do that with variables, but we do have keyboard event detection

I do not know how I managed to miss that in the docs... Thank you! Any way I can have @on("keyup.enter", :keypress) work on a the whole page rather than just for a textfield?

you can attach events to any component. If you want to do the entire page, wrapt it in a div or something, and attach an event to it like this

using GenieFramework
@app begin

    @event :page_clicked begin
        println("page clicked")
ui() = Html.div([h1("here's some text"), h3("and some more")], @on("click", :page_clicked))
@page("/", ui)
