Since covering the PyPS4Controller Linux Module in development, this weekend mrasband made available a Golang Library based on the Go Programming Language designed at Google to read PS4 DualShock 4 (DS4) Controller evdev events for Linux developers. 🤓

Download: / GIT

From the to quote: A golang library to read from a PlayStation 4 controller. This uses evdev, so it is Linux only.

pacakge main

import (


func main() {
    inputs, err := ps4.Discover()
    if err != nil {
        fmt.Printf("Error discovering controller: %s\n", err)

    var device *ps4.Input
    for _, input := range inputs {
        if input.Type == ps4.Controller {
            device = input

    ctx, cancel := context.WithCancel(context.Background())
    defer cancel()

    events, _ := ps4.Watch(ctx, device)
    for e := range events {
        fmt.Printf("%+v\n", e)

Any of the _string.go files are generated by go generate.
