Frame without X11

Asked by martinr

If I understand the code correctly, frame abstracts the concrete input source and provides a default binding for X11. Is there an implementation for receiving the events directly from /dev/input/eventX instead or would I have to provide my own?

Stephen M. Webb (bregma) said :

There is no implementation other than for X11.

At some point in its early history the library was using evdev directly, but under a desktop Linux OS shared hardware is intended to be arbitrated through a central service like X11 so that was quickly replaced.

It should not be terribly difficult to implement a direct evdev back end for Frame.

Can you help with this problem?
