Pixance

Pixance is a python script that allows you to measure how many pixels has your mouse covered in a given time. It makes use of ThingSpeak, so you can put a dynamic chart wherever you want and show people how active/busy you are.

Requisites

This script makes use of the following:

  • Python 2.7: executes the script
  • pyHook: intercepts mouse move events
  • pyQt: handles GUI and timing
  • ThingSpeak: you must have an account, create a channel and generate a Write API Key

Usage

Once you have installed the required libraries just launch the script, provide the ThingSpeak Write API Key and press Start. As simple as that!

WINDOW

Demo

You can watch my script in action updating (if I'm at the PC) my ThingSpeak channel.
