Non-blocking keybinds using threads
Non-blocking keybinds using threads.
- Download with
pip3 install defKey
- Import with
defKey allows the binding of keys to Python functions. When activated, defKey spawns a new thread which catches all keypresses (thus breaking
input()) and, if they have been bound, spawns a new thread which executes the bound function. This is best for games and TUI programs.
from defKey import defKey def hello(): print("hello") def goodbye(): print("goodbye") def actualGoodbye(): defKey.stop() defKey.bind("h", hello) defKey.bind("g", goodbye) defKey.bind("q", actualGoodbye) defKey.start()
You must call
defKey.stop() before using
input(). Binds will be retained and defKey can be restarted after.
