libinput bindings for Rust

These bindings closely follow libinput's concepts and it's original API. Please refer to the libinput documentation to understand the general structure and concepts.

Note: Due to a bug within libinput, these bindings are not compatible with libinput 1.19.0. Please use the fixed 1.19.1 version.

Usage

Add to your Cargo.toml:

input = "0.8"

Install the libinput dev dependencies:

Ubuntu:

apt-get install libinput-dev

Fedora

dnf install libinput-devel

Configure and run event loop:

use input::{Libinput, LibinputInterface};
use libc::{O_RDONLY, O_RDWR, O_WRONLY};
use std::fs::{File, OpenOptions};
use std::os::unix::{fs::OpenOptionsExt, io::OwnedFd};
use std::path::Path;

struct Interface;

impl LibinputInterface for Interface {
    fn open_restricted(&mut self, path: &Path, flags: i32) -> Result<OwnedFd, i32> {
        OpenOptions::new()
            .custom_flags(flags)
            .read((flags & O_RDONLY != 0) | (flags & O_RDWR != 0))
            .write((flags & O_WRONLY != 0) | (flags & O_RDWR != 0))
            .open(path)
            .map(|file| file.into())
            .map_err(|err| err.raw_os_error().unwrap())
    }
    fn close_restricted(&mut self, fd: OwnedFd) {
        drop(File::from(fd));
    }
}

fn main() {
    let mut input = Libinput::new_with_udev(Interface);
    input.udev_assign_seat("seat0").unwrap();
    loop {
        input.dispatch().unwrap();
        for event in &mut input {
            println!("Got event: {:?}", event);
        }
    }
}
