Simple Python program to execute commands on keypress on headless systems

Project description

This program aims to handle button/command binding for headless hosts. It captures all events from an input device (keyboard, mouse, etc.) and runs commands appropriately.

inputexec was born from the need to pass key presses from a remote control to a Music Player Daemon.

Example usage:

inputexec --config=actions.ini --source-file=/dev/input/keyboard

Installation

From PyPI

Simply run:

pip install inputexec

From source

You’ll need the python-evdev library, available from PyPI (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/evdev).

Then, run:

git clone https://github.com/rbarrois/evdev.git

Running

inputexec uses only optional arguments; the full list is available through inputexec --help.

All options may also been read from a configuration file passed as inputexec --config /path/to/example.ini. The list of valid options for the configuration files are available through inputexec --dump-config.
