Turns your mobile or tablet into a touchpad for your computer.
This application allows you to use a mobile phone or tablet as a touchpad for your computer.
No software needs to be installed on the device.
How does it work?
A simple HTTP server is started on the computer, and the device connects by simply opening a URL in a browser.
To manually start the HTTP server, run the following command:
python -m virtualtouchpad
This will start an HTTP server. It will print the line
Starting server http://<computer name>:<port>/…
Open this URL on your device to start controlling your computer.
