clickpy

Automated mouse clicker script using PyAutoGUI and Typer.

This app will randomly click your mouse between 1 second and 3 minutes, to prevent your screen and apps from sleeping or displaying an away status.

The rational behind the random interval is: if the mouse contiually clicked every second or millisecond, it could easily be detected as an automated process.

The random interval provides a sembalance of feasability, although the interval could be reduced and extended as needed, or move the cursor after a couple consecutive clicks. (Possibe future feature?)

PyAutoGUI provides a simple interface to the mouse, and Typer provides simple cli parsing. You can find out more about these libraries with the links provided above.

Installation

This package supports Python 3.6 through 3.9. It does not support any version of Python 2, nor any version of 3 lower than 3.6. Please upgrade our Python version, if possible.

I highly recommend using pipx for installing standalone packages, as it adds a layer of isolation to your installation. But pip will also work.

pipx install clickpy
# -- or --
pip install clickpy

If you're using macOS or Linux, you may have to install additional dependencies for PyAutoGUI to work properly. Please review their docs for additional information.

Windows users don't have to install any additional software.

To uninstall, type in your terminal:

pipx uninstall clickpy
# -- or --
pip uninstall clickpy

Running

Once this package is installed, and any additional dependencies too, run the app like so:

clickpy

To stop it, press ctrl+c.

There are 3 flags you can use; -d will display debug information, -f will speed the app up to 1 click every second, and --help will display the help menu.
