cinnamon's hot corners in fluxbox

Hi,
is there a way to get cinnamon's hot corners and the fancy alt+tab switcher to run on fluxbox?

I'm usually not the type of person to give a lot on eye candy but seeing the cinnamon desktop on my friends machine kind of intrigues me.
But when I try cinnamon out on my machine I soon miss switching workspaces with keybinds or mousewheel, I miss the right-click menu, I miss the plain text config files and so on.
Then I spent weeks looking for other hot corner implementations, found a script that can run commands if the cursor is present in certain areas of the screen. But I've gotta say I kinda fell in love with the cinnamon eye-candy of the hot corners and the alt+tab switcher.

Hi! Have you come across Brightside? Although it claims to be a Gnome2/Metacity tool it works on my system (Ubuntu 14.04, lightdm, no desktop environment, fluxbox). I just found out about it earlier but it seems to suit my (and your) purposes regarding hot corners (no alt+tab switching) very well. Small app that comes with a neat GUI.

Here's another python script which you might have seen already. Haven't tried it though: http://gentoo-en.vfose.ru/wiki/Fluxbox
