Rotation of the screen with Automator and a script

I have no knowledge whatsoever about scripts, coding or automator. I continue to read discussions about the issue, but I don't understand them. It would be a great help for me if someone please explain how to create a kind of keyboard shortcut that changed the rotation of the screen (the own macbook screen, not an external) using automator and a script on a Macbook Air running OS X El Capitan 10.11.2.

Is this possible?

Thank you in advance.

One option is to use the utility command line fb - turn in Automator service and assign a keyboard shortcut. Download the GitHub source fb-rotation, compilation, following the indications on GitHub and output the binary to usr; or download a binary compiled and move to usr/local/bin.

Create an Automator service, set the options "Service receives no entry in any application", add an action to run the Shell Script and set the options as "Shell: / bin/bash ', ' Pass entry: to stdin.  Type the command rotation fb for the desired degree of orientation of the screen such as ' / usr/local/bin/fb-rotation - d 0 - r 180 ' 180 ° on the main screen. Register the service under a name.

Go to  > System Preferences > keyboard > shortcuts > Services. Highlight the service you created, select it, click "none" and create a shortcut using a unique combination of keys. Create separate services of Automator for the additional screen orientations. Quit the system preferences when you are finished.

Tested with OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite and El Capitan 10.11.3
