OSK Enhancements Proposals

  • Here's some screenshots from my tinkering with dark mode (SuruDark).



    Extended Keys


  • Niiice. Got a screenshot with a darkmode app?

  • @doniks
    Here πŸ™‚


  • @kugiigi said in OSK Enhancements Proposals:

    Here's a very clear and professionally created video showing the things I've implemented in the OSK so far πŸ˜ƒ

    Video Demo

    Thumbs up. Does it work with terminal app too?

  • but in selection mode you can move only one of the two cursor, am I right?
    starting dragging the thumb from the left part of the osk could move the start-selection cursor while starting dragging in the right part could move the end one

  • @jezek most likely they will work but the terminal app already has the keyboard shortcuts which are actually more and more useful there.

    @mymike That would be cool but I don't now if there are keyboard shortcuts that do those. Currently, the keys/shortcuts in the OSK are just mapped to actual keyboard shortcuts.

  • Here's a better version of a demo video. This already includes all the work I've done so far. Please ignore my incorrect grammars and bad typing πŸ˜›

  • @marvolichko Compiling creates deb files (if no-debs parameter was not used) and you'll have to use crossbuilder deploy to copy to your device via ADB. I get an error though for the actual installation so I do them manually.
    As for your concern, unfortunately you really can't pick things to install aside from the languages. Trying this out will always have the risk to break your OSK. In case of breakage, you can build the xenial branch from the original repo and install from there πŸ™‚

  • @CiberSheep I would like to get the opinion of the design team about the OSK.
    I'm exploring the possibility of keyboard themes especially the Ambiance and SuruDark themes.
    I used "hacky" ways to implement it in my previous screenshots but now I want to make a proper implementation.
    However, one of the blocking points are the Border Images that were used for some kind of drop shadows.
    Would it be okay to replace them with just a rectangle with border instead so that theming support will be easier?

    Here are a few screenshots showing rectangle with border instead of drop shadows.




  • @kugiigi I would say: go ahead and forget the drop shadow πŸ™‚

  • @cibersheep Roger that! someone has to approve my PR anyway in case I really get a proper implementation πŸ™‚

  • Some progress for the themes support hurray! πŸ˜ƒ

    Here are the repositories I've uploaded which so far works quite well except the settings-app which I was not able to build myself but I've only changed QML and those worked fine when I tested directly on my phone πŸ™‚
    Keyboard component
    Settings app

    My initial plan was just create a dark mode for the OSK but since the foundation for the colors is already there so I experimented with different themes and these are the ones I've come up.
    (I don't know how to shrink the photos here :P)

    Ambiance (Default)

    Suru Dark

    Suru Black

    Just White

    Just Black

    Just Grey

    Bordered White

    Bordered Black

    Bordered Grey

    Colored ones are also possible but I did not include any in the repo but here's a sample

    I don't know if this will be accepted but if yes, @CiberSheep I would like get the opinion of the design team and you can check the colors.
    They're just in json files in the repo and can be easily modified πŸ˜‰

    And BTW, this completely removed the border images and replaced with rectangles with borders

  • In two words: im pressive XD
    If you want the Suru colors, are:

  • @kugiigi really cool! But the ones using the same color for keys, background and borders look strange to me... 😁
    Now we have to make the keyboard respecting the (system wide) theme setting... πŸ™‚

  • @kugiigi good job

  • @cibersheep I used the palettes from the official toolkit themes so those are already suru colors πŸ˜‰
    Although I did not explore the more extensive list of suru palettes.
    Do you want to check the design/palettes first or should I create a PR now and just do any changes on that based on your comments? πŸ™‚

    @hummlbach I considered doing that at first, using "theme.palette" and so but it wasn't quite simple to convert since not all the original palettes have equivalent in the toolkit. And personally, I don't think we'll have system-wide theme setting soon especially that the UITK's future is quite bad at the moment. But in any case, we can still have a workaround for maybe setting the theme to Ambiance or SuruDark πŸ™‚

  • @kugiigi I know you used the Suru palette, sorry: I ment that if you want more colors, that list is the Β«officialΒ» additional colors πŸ™‚

    I think you can do a PR and we can work from there, don't you?

  • @kugiigi what about making shadows from qml with DropShadows? honestly I don't like very much that border...

  • @kugiigi here I prefer the first 2 screens and I don't like the ones with borders... how are the magnified key when pressed on the just one color keyboard?
