Keyboard customization tool for Linux

reddit

I have written a tiny linux utility in Rust which helps to reconfigure your keyboard. Much like Karabiner-Elements for MacOS, only simpler and with less features.

The main features are:

  • Layer configuration like QMK. For example you can remap rightalt+hjkl to left/down/up/right for the whole system.
  • Applying different configurations per each attached keyboard

The advantage over existing tools like xbindkeys/xmodmap/setxkbmap is simplicity and the primary focus on layers.

I have been using it for approximately a year and it's stable enough for simple use cases. Let me know what you think.
