screeninfo

Build

Fetch location and size of physical screens.

Supported environments

  • MS Windows
  • MS Windows: Cygwin
  • GNU/Linux: X11 (through Xinerama)
  • GNU/Linux: DRM (experimental)
  • OSX: (through AppKit)

I don't plan on testing OSX or other environments myself. For this reason, I strongly encourage pull requests.

Installation

pip install screeninfo

Usage

from screeninfo import get_monitors
for m in get_monitors():
    print(str(m))

Output:

Monitor(x=3840, y=0, width=3840, height=2160, width_mm=1420, height_mm=800, name='HDMI-0', is_primary=False)
Monitor(x=0, y=0, width=3840, height=2160, width_mm=708, height_mm=399, name='DP-0', is_primary=True)

Forcing environment

In some cases (emulating X server on Cygwin etc.) you might want to specify the driver directly. You can do so by passing extra parameter to get_monitors() like this:

from screeninfo import get_monitors, Enumerator
for m in get_monitors(Enumerator.OSX):
    print(str(m))

Available drivers: windows, cygwin, x11, osx.
