Attention everybody. I am getting hints about several people spending time and effort for generating language-specific keyboards. I did a quick one for Android this year (just a keyboard, not a keyboard builder) - because our users had started some bad hacking and were getting into bad habits and bad orthography for lack a of a keyboard (for WhatsApp mainly).
I am mildly aware about Keyman but it is far too can-do-it-all so making just a keyboard for Android was impossible for me in the little time I could spend on this. At the moment I find the Keyman documentation very confusing and it feels scattered over several locations. Could be me.
I am inviting everybody who is working on something like a Keyboard App Builder for Android or iOS or whatever to share their plans or progress somewhere like on this community. So that there is less danger of wasted double efforts. We might need one or two “competing” tools to make it fun and get excellence, but not too many. Rather collaborate on a few widely endorsed projects.
