    node-virtual-input

    This nodejs lib lets you simulate keypresses, gamepad controls, joystick controls, mouse movement and clicks; all natively using uinput.

    Prerequisite


    This is only compatible with Linux OS with the uinput kernel module installed.

    Installation


    npm install --save virtual-input
    

    Usage


    const Input = require('virtual-input');
     
    let opts = {};
    let input = new Input(opts);

    Methods


    .connect(callback) Connects input device to device.

    .disconnect(callback) Disconnects input device from device.

    .sendEvent({type: <EVENTTYPE>, code: <EVENTCODE>, value: <VALUE>}) Sends an event.

    type and code are numbers based on the event types and the event codes. Some of these types and codes are included in lib/uinput.js, if type and code are given strings, their value will be taken from there. (not all codes exist there).

    Options


    opts.ioctlArray You may supply an array of two array pairs of ioctl 'features'.

    let input = new Input({ioctlArray: [
        ['UI_SET_KEYBIT', 'BTN_MIDDLE'],
        ['UI_SET_KEYBIT', 'BTN_EXTRA']
    ]});

    Examples


    There is rectangle.js in examples dir. If you want real code samples, then you can check out my sphero-as-joystick repo.
