This package provides bindings to the generic input event interface in Linux. The evdev interface serves the purpose of passing events generated in the kernel directly to userspace through character devices that are typically located in /dev/input/.

This package also comes with bindings to uinput, the userspace input subsystem. Uinput allows userspace programs to create and handle input devices that can inject events directly into the input subsystem.

In other words, python-evdev allows you to read and write input events on Linux. An event can be a key or button press, a mouse movement or a tap on a touchscreen.
