I'm making a robot car and I need a library like pygame that is able to recognize keyboard input and do a task (a created function, i.e. move forward, backward, left, right). But I need a module that doesnt bring up a GUI like pygame does and has a time delay function like pygame has. Basically everything that pygame has without the game creation part and the GUI part. Thanks.

  • Which keybindings do you need? The answer to your question in part depends on that. Would you personally count things made with curses as GUIs? Feb 5, 2023 at 6:16
