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.
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
Once you have installed the required libraries just launch the script, provide the ThingSpeak Write API Key and press Start. As simple as that!
You can watch my script in action updating (if I'm at the PC) my ThingSpeak channel.
