Achieving Hacker'sKeyboard-like experience - possible or clashes with project vision?
as I'm currently using android on my main device, I have become used to Hacker'sKeyboard, more specifically it's "compact layout", and I believe there are some key points to the experience, which I'd like to see in a Linux software keyboard:
- copy the layout (means making the layouts flexible enough)
- make modifier keys work + shift as a modifier key
- allow modifiers to be used in non-locking mode (determined automatically)
- allow alternative characters (long-press on a key) - more touch-friendly that using shift/altGr to access the symbols they unlock
That might actually be it, but it's still work and it may even interfere with the project's vision. So, what do you think?
It seems ironic that there exists a more Linux-user-grade keyboard for android than the ones for Linux are.
