Python bindings for libxdo
libxdo is the library behind xdotool, a tool to “fake keyboard/mouse input, window management, and more”.
This package aims to provide ctypes-based Python bindings (and a more pythonic way to use the C library, of course..)
WARNING The project is still work in progress! Only a small part of the library is supported, and tests / documentation are missing. Use with care (and make sure to report any issue you should find!)
Documentation is hosted on Read The Docs:
Note: there currently is a problem building the documentation on RTD due to missing libxdo library (which makes importing xdo.xdo fail). For this reason, a (locally-generated) copy of the documentation is hosted on github pages:
Ask the user to click a window with the mouse, then write “Python rocks!” to that window.
from xdo import Xdo xdo = Xdo() win_id = xdo.select_window_with_click() xdo.enter_text_window(win_id, 'Python rocks!')
The library is currently tested on:
|OS||Architecture||libxdo version||Date||Test result|
|Debian GNU/Linux “jessie” (testing)||amd64||3.20130111.1-3.1||✓ success|
