I am trying to install the pynput module onto my iPad on Pythonista.
I have used stash to do a pip install which mostly worked, but it did not download the setup.py file so I had to extract the file on my laptop and send it to my iPad. The setup.py file didn't run properly either so I made some changes by copying across the INFO data. Anyway, I managed to get the setup.py file to run without any errors, then I tried to do import pynput in the shell and it didn't work.
I restarted the app and ran the setup.py file again, this time it had an error saying there was no module called setup tools installed. So then I did a pip install setup tools using stash, which worked, and tried everything again, but still when I type import pynput, it says there is no module.
pynput is a module that allows python to control the mouse and keyboard of a computer. I was trying to test it to see if it could work on an iPad too. I must have this module installed in order for it to work.
Please let me know your thoughts and please provide any advice if you can. Thanks so much

@ss12345, pynput seems to do a lot of OS-specific stuff, so not sure whether you can get it running on iOS. In other words, not sure if iOS is Darwin enough.
What is the exact trace you are getting? Have you tried just plonking the files from Github into your site-packages?
