CircuitPython library for running DuckyScript


You can find the DuckyScript Documentation here


This driver depends on:

Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle or individual libraries can be installed using circup.

Installing from PyPI

On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:

pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-ducky

To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):

sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-ducky

To install in a virtual environment in your current project:

mkdir project-name && cd project-name
python3 -m venv .venv
source .venv/bin/activate
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-ducky

Installing to a Connected CircuitPython Device with Circup

Make sure that you have circup installed in your Python environment. Install it with the following command if necessary:

pip3 install circup

With circup installed and your CircuitPython device connected use the following command to install:

circup install adafruit_ducky

Or the following command to update an existing version:

circup update

Usage Example

Here is an example of using the Ducky library. First you will need to import the libraries

import time
import usb_hid
from adafruit_hid.keyboard import Keyboard
from adafruit_hid.keyboard_layout_us import KeyboardLayoutUS
import adafruit_ducky

Once this is done, define the keyboard layout and initialize the Ducky object.

time.sleep(1)  # Sleep for a bit to avoid a race condition on some systems
keyboard = Keyboard(usb_hid.devices)
keyboard_layout = KeyboardLayoutUS(keyboard)  # We're in the US :)

duck = adafruit_ducky.Ducky('duckyscript.txt', keyboard, keyboard_layout)

Now, set up a loop which will run a line of the script every time loop is called.

result = True
while result is not False:
    result = duck.loop()
