Important Info

See this post by Pekka about how to contribute: https://together.jolla.com/question/124266/keyboard-contributions-for-inclusion-in-sfos/?answer=128114#post-id-128114

@veskuh said in the latest meeting that they can/will look into integrating community contributed keyboards in a future SFOS versions. (the sooner the better i might add)

The only requirement he gave thus far is the license. They prefer BSD.

If you created a keyboard and you agree with the above (license and req) feel free to post it here.

A request:Could someone post this thread in talk.maemo.org in the keyboards thread. Just in case someone wants to contribute?

I would like to submit Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu and Hindi Keyboards that I put together. These are Indian languages and will help make Intex and other Sailfish phones/tablets more attractive to Indian customers. I can also put together some other languages

They also require Indian Language Lohit Fonts to be available in the system. I believe lohit-devanagari (Hindi) font, is included in Sailfish 2.0. Please include all Lohit fonts, so all Indian languages display correctly, with next update.

What and how do I submit the keyboards? Do you just need the source layout files?

@AbyZThomas

Create a separate answer for each language. You must include a lisence other than gpl v3 (if you agee with that of course). Not sure if @veskuh wants them in github or something but i believe posting the qml file here will be enough.

Also since jolla is working with an Indian company maybe someone must clarify what languages are not ready (or soon to be included) yet in order to avoid duplicate work.

@vattuvarg there was one i think. If the guy that created it wants to contribute the door is open.

Is this the right place for me to add a request?

I'd like a keyboard layout with "all the available diacritics", for example as "dead keys" (press diacritic, then press key to add the diacritic to) - or optionally as longpress-alternatives.

A later version of that would then have the ability to choose, say, up to four dictionaries to it.

E.g. I usually write in Swedish and in English, but now and then I may want to include the occasional ü and ß (u-umlaut and "Eszett"/"scharfes S", available in e.g. German), and I'm also presently learning Esperanto (which uses ĉĝĥĵŝŭ). It would be neat to be able to type all of these without having to switch keyboards inbetween.
Also: Do note, that while learning Esperanto it's actually to my advantage to not have a dictionary built-in!

I guess such a keyboard would need to be available in a Latin variant, and then a separate Cyrillic (maybe mixed with Greek?) variant.

I have another one which I use since the N9 age (was in Ovistore thanks to AbyZThomas) and it's a little bit different. Of course, I prefer mine ;-) So, which one to use?
