Keyboard controlled stopwatch with no window focus required

Project description

PyPI PyPI - Python Version


This is a keyboard controlled stopwatch that runs in your terminal and works without window focus. Downside to the window focus thing—you need to run this as root. But compromises, right?

Anyway, this is good for ad-hoc speedrunning. Enjoy!


Run directly from source with

sudo ./

or install with pip with

pip3 install kb-stopwatch

and run with

sudo kb-stopwatch


Press the control key, which currently is restricted to space, to start the stopwatch. Hit the control key again to stop the timer. Repeat as many times as desired.
