Package: wnpp

Owner: Stephen Kitt <skitt@xxxxxxxxxx>

* Package name    : libevdev-python
  Version         : 0.2
  Upstream Author : Peter Hutterer <peter.hutterer@xxxxxxxxx>
* URL             : https://github.com/whot/libevdev-python

  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : Python wrapper for libevdev

This is a Python wrapper around libevdev, a wrapper library for evdev
devices. It provides a simpler API around evdev and takes advantage of
libevdev’s advanced event handling, providing

* access to the state of the device (not just the events)
* correct handling of fake multitouch devices
* synchronisation of slots and per-slot state
* transparent generation of missing tracking ids
* per-context event handling


This package will end up being used by libratbag, piper etc., instead
of python-evdev.
