The simplest use, save a screen shot of the 1st monitor

with mss() as sct: sct.shot()

An ultra fast cross-platform multiple screenshots module in pure python using ctypes.

  • Python 3.5+ and PEP8 compliant, no dependency, thread-safe;
  • very basic, it will grab one screen shot by monitor or a screen shot of all monitors and save it to a PNG file;
  • but you can use PIL and benefit from all its formats (or add yours directly);
  • integrate well with Numpy and OpenCV;
  • it could be easily embedded into games and other software which require fast and platform optimized methods to grab screen shots (like AI, Computer Vision);
  • get the
    source code on GitHub 
    _;
  • learn with a
    bunch of examples 
    _;
  • you can
    report a bug 
    _;
  • need some help? Use the tag python-mss on
    StackOverflow 
    _;
  • and there is a
    complete, and beautiful, documentation 
    _ :)
  • MSS stands for Multiple Screen Shots;
