French Canadian Keyboard



  • Hi,

    There really is no rush for this but it would be nice to have a French Canadian keyboard on UT. I understand that we are not a big potential user base like France or Germany but we do use a different keyboard. France uses AZERTY, French Switzerland uses QWERTZ and we use QWERTY. There is over 7 million people in Canada speaking french and using this layout:

    I would do it but unfortunately I don't know how to code, yet. A QWERTY keyboard with french suggestions of words and french autocorrect and spell check would do the trick for me.

    Thanks



  • I'm also interested in an italian(it) keyboard...I'm really interested in some documentation/howto about make custom keyboard and Dictionary



  • Hi!

    yes this is possible: Basically we need some new files as shown in this pull request: https://github.com/ubports/keyboard-component/pull/17 - then we can add a new keyboard.

  • @flohack Thx!

    So should I write a request on Github or is this considered a request? What kind of help or files can I provide?

    (quite a beginner at this)



  • @jsnjhn Well you can file an issue on Github, but we need someone who does actually do the work 😉 - You would need to install git on your machine, and you need a Github account too... I did not work on the keyboard at all, but maybe someone else can make a small writeup in which order these things should be done...

    Okay thanks, I guess for now I'll stick to foreign keyboard as it is not a priority. It's better to focus on other areas of UT.
