Virtual Touchpad

How does it work?

A simple HTTP server is started on the computer, and the device connects by simply opening a URL in a browser.

To manually start the HTTP server, run the following command:

python -m virtualtouchpad

This will start an HTTP server. It will print the line

Starting server http://<computer name>:<port>/…

Open this URL on your device to start controlling your computer.
