Thank you for the input @yanfali and the help. kbfirware.com is in my toolbox but for a different reason. I took the raw data (switch layout from hand wired project) from keyboard-layout-editor.com and pasted it into kbfirmware.com to get the column wiring configuration. The “flip” feature to see front and back information (column/row numbering) is very helpful. Thanks.
Ever tried to learn something entirely new, and had your little voice screaming that you need more information, but just didn’t know what or how to ask? This topic is that for me.
My brain says that if a controller board (Teensy 2.0 for example) is compatible with say kbfirmware.com or others, it shouldn’t matter if an existing configuration exists. Someone should be able create a firmware for a board since the controller/firmware-builder play nice with each other. Logic says there’s less work if the layout exists but as long as the controller is compatible, creating a firmware and flashing a board is possible right?
What’s funny is I’m guessing I’ll look back on this and realize I’m over complicating things. For now though, some of the things on my wish/want list are:
- Macros (ctrl+l) to copy browser url, (alt+tab) to go to previous program (ctrl+shift+1) to trigger action in that program, (alt+tab) return to program…you get the idea.
- Tapdance…introduced by @Lesbian otherwise probably wouldn’t have discovered it.
- FN access to 3-4 layers with one or two key combos
- Convenient flashing workflow (realize a need, add it to keyboard and be done in <5 min)…I’m hoping anyway.
Again thanks for reaching out. Everyone at Keebtalk has been very generous in their help and for someone that has to learn all facets of this subject, it’s really appreciated.
