Wiiuse is a library written in C that connects with several Nintendo Wii remotes. Supports motion sensing, IR tracking, nunchuk, classic controller, and the Guitar Hero 3 controller. Single threaded and nonblocking makes a light weight and clean API.

Wiiuse is integrated into libogc and is wrapped by the WPAD library.

Documentation was previously available at wiiuse.net. However, the wiiuse.net domain is no longer available. The library is still available through their github repository, but documentation is not included.

An example program that uses the library is included in the download under the examples directory. The example should be portable across all supported platforms.
