Keyboard layouts for Jolla's Sailfish OS
 
So, it is that time of the year again - Jolla's Sailfish OS seems to be shipping with 12 languages/keyboard layouts only and its up to us to create the additional ones we need.

Bulgarian Phonetic

Obligatory screenshot:
http://bundyo.org/jolla/layouts/jolla_bg_layout.png

RPM file (install with a file manager or with zypper/pkcon-local in Terminal):
http://bundyo.org/jolla/layouts/bulg...1-1.noarch.rpm
Updated RPM with fixed predictions in Sailfish OS 1.0.5.16:
http://bundyo.org/jolla/layouts/bulg...2-1.noarch.rpm


If you prefer manual installation:
Layout file:
http://bundyo.org/jolla/layouts/bg.qml

BG conf file (no need to modify the layouts.conf, as it gets replaced on updates and all conf files in the layouts folder get parsed by the server):
http://bundyo.org/jolla/layouts/bg.conf

For now both go to (dunno the user location yet):
/usr/share/maliit/plugins/com/jolla/layouts/

and just restart afterwards. You can also do
Code:

systemctl --user restart maliit-server.service
as a user or just
Code:

killall maliit-server
as root.

RPM packages for many of the layouts in this thread made available in Open Repos by Penguin. More here

Any way to add arrows?

Can the Mesinput ones be used? For example: http://www.mesinput.com/viewlayouts/layout/426014

Hmm, arrows functionality doesn't seem to be exposed directly, but since the whole thing is in QML, I suspect arrow keys would be quite possible...

Here is the first layout - Bulgarian Phonetic.


For now goes to (dunno the user location yet):
/usr/share/maliit/plugins/com/jolla/layouts/

You should also modify the layouts.conf at the same location and add the Bulgarian layout description:

Code:

[bg.qml]
name=Български
languageCode=BG

and restart afterwards.

Thank you!
Arrows and ctrl key for copy and paste would be nice, if it's possible!
Thaks god this is not БДС layout! :D

Doesn't seem so, as the new layouts are in QML and the MesInput ones in XML. I guess someone from Jolla can confirm/deny this.

I'll see about the arrows, but copy paste buttons are shown on the top of the keyboard anyway when you select something, so no need for that.

Any plans of a swype layout for the keyboard? Thanks

Don't forget Greek layout :-)

swype is more than just a layout. there's quite some logic going on in the background to process the swipes you make (you can read the patent filing here -> http://www.freepatentsonline.com/7453439.pdf)
