Portable getch() for Python.
More than a few times, I've had liked to just write
getch() instead of
raw_input(). This is the missing cross-platform functionality you've been
Install with pip:
$ pip install py-getch
from getch import getch, pause key = getch() print 'You pressed:', key pause()
Wait for a keypress:
ch = getch()
This works like you'd expect, except that it returns a string.
You can also pause with the standard
'Press any key to continue. . . ' message:
Or pause with a custom message:
pause('Press any key to exit.')
You can have Python exit automatically with:
pause_exit(status=0, message='Press any key to exit.')
