Mouse Jiggler

Hello Everybody.

With COVID-19 and everyone working from a home office, the biggest bestseller of a certain company specializing in keyloggers became mouse jigglers.
It seems that it is something Flipper Zero should be capable of doing, not out-of-the-box, but with the 3rd-party module, it could become a possibility. Especially since it hits close to the forensic theme of the Flipper.
I am interested in preparing such plugin so I hoped you could point me in the right direction. I wasn’t able to find any specification for writing plugins on the website so I would be grateful if you could tell me how to approach this topic.

I look forward to your responses.

Best regards,

It moves the mouse from time to time to prevent sleep?

O don’t know about flipper plug-ins or sideload from the main os, but you will need to write it in C or C++ as for any other stm32 device.

Maybe you can start here

@TigPT Thank you very much for this article, very informative.
Do you know whether there are some resources about plugins for flipper? Any information about them would be great.
I was also looking for tip which technologies I should master before attempting to code this project. I am C++ developer, but I don’t have experience with microcontrollers, so I guess that would be a start. Is there anything else that would be useful?

For code only you just need to understand C++ and look at the MCU API when we have oficial announcement of the selected MCU.

If you want to play with GPIO Arduino and some basic electronics is a great starting point.
