Keyboard in my local language

I have created the keyboard but its not compiling for packaging

Hi @ndamekings

Are you getting Keyman Developer compile errors when you try to build the keyboard package? If so, can you tell us what errors you get?

Here’s a guide on creating a keyboard package

Those are Keyman Developer warnings about the .kmn filename. Here’s a guideline about the ASCII characters we strongly recommend using for a keyboard name
https://help.keyman.com/developer/keyboards/github/step-0#toc-use-ascii-characters-for-keyboard-base-names

In your case, I would suggest renaming the keyboard to ukwuani.kmn and see if that compiles without warnings.

Thanks to you,

I will do as requested.

Dear Darcy,

I need this by tomorrow mostly for android, we can do the others by next week. Thanks a lot.

Please understand that we are providing these services for free – we will try to assist but cannot meet deadlines for free service!

Keyman Developer is a free download that allows you to create keyboard layouts yourself so if you do need this urgently, I would advise working on it yourself, following the tutorials at https://help.keyman.com/developer/14.0/guides/develop/

Dear Marc,

I will go for the price, as long as you deliver to me, it’s urgent and I can’t deliver perfectly compared to professional like you.

Please this is urgent, mostly the android version, by next week we will commence on windows and physical keyboard.
Thanks for your anticipated cooperation.

My guess is that you have not included necessary files in the package. Which is why it didn’t build successfully. Refer to this documentation on how to properly create a keyboard package for distribution: Package Tutorial.
