Scope and status

Python-evdev exposes most of the more common interfaces defined in the evdev subsystem. Reading and injecting events is well supported and has been tested with nearly all event types.

The basic functionality for reading and uploading force-feedback events is there, but it has not been exercised sufficiently. A major shortcoming of the uinput wrapper is that it does not support force-feedback devices at all (see issue #23).

Some characters, such as : (colon), cannot be easily injected (see issue #7), Translating them into UInput events would require knowing the kernel keyboard translation table, which is beyond the scope of python-evdev. Please look into the following projects if you need more complete or convenient input injection support.
