Tablet Tilt Joystick

A program that lets you use your tablet’s tilting to emulate an actual joystick on a Linux computer.

It’s called tablet tilt joystick but it will work with any handheld device with a reasonably modern web browser and an orientation sensor.

Runs a light web server which you can connect to in a browser on your tablet.

Run with python3 -m tablet_tilt_joystick and connect to

on a mobile device to get started. (Make sure it’s not blocked by a firewall) The joystick will show up in your system as python-uinput (/dev/input/js0).
