Python Keyboard

English 中文

From a hand-wired USB & Bluetooth keyboard powered by Python to production.

The Python keyboard works so well thanks to MicroPython and CircuitPython.

Hand-wiring a keyboard

Follow the guide - hand-wiring-a-keyboard.md to rapidly make a keyboard with 100 lines of Python code.

From prototype to production in progress

With putting more time into the Python keyboard, we find it more and more interesting. We think a Python keyboard can make a big difference, so we decide to design a new keyboard for everyone. Check out the M60 mechanical keyboard.

To be a productive keyboard

As the 60% keyboard lacks a lot of keys (F1~F12, arrow keys and etc). We can add features like TMK's layers and composite keys to make the small keyboard much more powerful. With the idea of Toward a more useful keyboard to keep our fingers at the home row, we can optimize the keyboard to make us more productive.

Adding the Tap-key feature, which is holding a key down to activate an alternate function, can make a big difference.

Using D for Navigation

Taping d outputs d (press & release quickly), holding d down activates navigation functions.

  • d + h as
  • d + j as
  • d + k as
  • d + l as
  • d + u as PageUp
  • d + n as PageDown

To apply the navigation d, copy keyboard.py and action_code.py to the USB drive of the keyboard, and then modify code.py to import the new keyboard

# code.py

from keyboard import main

main()

Using Pair-keys

Simultaneously pressing two keys (interval less than 25ms) activates an alternate function.

Using ; as Ctrl

WIP - Holding ; down outputs Ctrl

Todo

  • ; as Ctrl
  • add macro
  • add system keys and cosumer keys
  • add mouse keys
  • reduce latency
