Isomorphic Keyboard Emulator

Post by mindhog »

I recently became interested in isomorphic keyboards (e.g. Wicki-Hayden, Jankó and Harmonic) and after realizing that a normal qwerty typewriter keyboard should do a pretty good job standing in for the hexagonal honeycomb grids used by these, I decided to write a little emulator: https://github.com/mindhog/mawb#isokbd- ... controller

It's currently linux-only since it uses the ALSA libraries to send midi events, but the rest of the code is just python3/tkinter so it should be fairly easy to get it running on other OSes (happy to accept PRs). It's also limited by your keyboard hardware's ability to deal with multiple keys simultaneously (seeing no issues at all on my Das Keyboard :-).

It emulates the three flavors of iso keyboard mentioned above as well as two others that I thought would be interesting. I'm kind of liking the "alt-thirds" layout myself.

Hi. This looks interesting.

I tried to build from mawb repo, but got error when building spug. I'm on Fedora 32 with g++ 10.1.1.

Following snippet is the error I got:

Code: Select all

$ git clone https://github.com/mindhog/spugxx.git
$ cd spugxx/
$ ./bootstrap
$ ./configure

$ make -j

rm -f stamp-h1
touch config.h.in
cd . && /bin/sh ./config.status config.h

Also it might be helpful to put spugxx repository url on `mawb/INSTALL`. I first tried to search "spug" through google and duckduckgo, but spugxx repo didn't hit on result.

Re: Isomorphic Keyboard Emulator

Post by mindhog »

Hi ryukau,

You don't have to do the full INSTALL instructions for isokbd, just the instructions from the README:
For isokbd.py you should only need swig, tkinter and the alsa libaries and headers ("swig", "python3-tk" and "libasound2-dev" on debian-derivatives) and you can install like so:

python3 setup.py build
sudo python3 setup.py install
But thank you for the bug report! "mawbd" clearly needs to be updated for the latest C++ goodness.

Re: Isomorphic Keyboard Emulator

Thanks for the answer, mindhog. It's working now.

I thought missing swig was a error that requires build from source. :oops:

I'm using keyboard with Japanese layout (OADG 109A), so key binding configuration would be nice to have. A mention about `rows` variable in isokbd.py might be helpful to have in README.md.

Cool, glad it worked out!

Glad you discovered that :D I've been thinking a bit about this, @tavasti also had a problem with keyboard layout, it really should just be a config file. The nice thing is that the layout should be really easy to specify (with the exception of characters that show up as keysyms like "backspace" etc.).

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to try it out!
