Hook and simulate mouse events on Windows and Linux
Take full control of your mouse with this small Python library. Hook global events, register hotkeys, simulate mouse movement and clicks, and much more.
- Global event hook on all mice devices (captures events regardless of focus).
- Listen and sends mouse events.
- Works with Windows and Linux (requires sudo).
- Pure Python, no C modules to be compiled.
- Zero dependencies. Trivial to install and deploy, just copy the files.
- Python 2 and 3.
- Includes high level API (e.g. record and play.
- Events automatically captured in separate thread, doesn't block main program.
- Tested and documented.
This program makes no attempt to hide itself, so don't use it for keyloggers.
Install the PyPI package:
$ sudo pip install mouse
or clone the repository (no installation required, source files are sufficient):
$ git clone https://github.com/boppreh/mouse
Then check the API docs to see what features are available.
- Events generated under Windows don't report device id (
event.device == None). #21
- To avoid depending on X the Linux parts reads raw device files (
/dev/input/input*) but this requries root.
- Other applications, such as some games, may register hooks that swallow all key events. In this case
mousewill be unable to report events.
