python-libevdev - Python wrapper for libevdev

This project is a Python wrapper around libevdev, taking advantage of libevdev's advanced event handling. Documentation is available here:

libevdev makes it easy to

  • read and parse events from an input device
  • create a virtual input device and make it send events
  • duplicate an existing device and modify the event stream
