GUI application to monitor mouse coordinates in real-time

Problem
You want to monitor mouse coordinates in real-time.

But why?
For instance you want to use the autopy Python module. “AutoPy is a simple, cross-platform GUI automation toolkit for Python. It includes functions for controlling the keyboard and mouse, finding colors and bitmaps on-screen, and displaying alerts — all in a cross-platform, efficient, and simple manner.” (source) So, with autopy you can say “move the mouse to position X,Y and click once”. But how do you figure out the X,Y coordinates? This is when my script comes in the picture.

Solution
Just launch my simple GUI and it will show the mouse coordinates in real-time. Available here, in the “mouse/” folder.
