Playstation 4 Controller Python

#
# This file presents an interface for interacting with the Playstation 4 Controller
# in Python. Simply plug your PS4 controller into your computer using USB and run this
# script!
#
# NOTE: I assume in this script that the only joystick plugged in is the PS4 controller.
# if this is not the case, you will need to change the class accordingly.

I have my controller connected to my ps4 via Bluetooth and USB to my pc. Is there a way to simulate an action from my pc?
