an auto luxer

Project description

inspired by [lumen](https://github.com/anishathalye/lumen) but written for *nix machines. autolux takes a screenshot every few seconds, figures out the ‘average value’ of the resulting image and changes the screen brightness based on screen’s contents.

— installation —

pip install autolux

— dependencies —

  • imagemagick (for screenshots + determining average brightness)
  • xdotool (finding focused window)
  • xbacklight (for setting display brightness)

— usage: —

autolux

— how it works —

autolux is a simple python script that takes a screenshot of a vertical strip every few seconds and calculates the average pixel value. in order to save CPU, a screenshot is only taken if the window has changed since the last time a screenshot was taken
