OKBoard (a.k.a. Magic Keyboard) is a gesture based keyboard that allow single stroke typing. Usage is explained in this video. English, French and Dutch are supported without the need for additional packages, other language resources are available in separate packages, e.g. for Swedish (okb-lang-sv).
Only the original Jolla phone is supported at the moment because the implementation is dependent on screen resolution and size. User experience is significantly reduced on other devices (error rate is higher, and this was also true for older releases) ... This may be improved with 0.6.9 release, please give some feedback
Do not use other third party keyboards at the same time (unless they are just simple layouts for new languages).
Language files can be extracted from the RPM if you want to build from source.
Source code: http://git.tuxfamily.org/okboard/okb-engine.git/ and http://git.tuxfamily.org/okboard/okb-keyboard.git/. Instructions for adding new languages are included (latin alphabet only at the moment)
If you want to use the e-mail log submission button, please first enable logging, then reproduce any issue you want to report and then send me the logs (I will make this more straigthforward in the next release).
0.5.10: auto-spacing fix (cf. Web Pirate crash on TMO thread) + improved language files (added movies subtitles from OPUS)
0.6 : Lots of bug & performance fixes. Most noticeable improvements include:
Third party language files have to be re-generated with current git version tools (DB format version 16)
0.6.9 : support for devices other than Jolla phone: This is still unfinished / unstable, but i'm spreading it in order to get some feedback. Only tested on Nexus 5 so YMMV on other devices. Older language files can still be used. No change is expected on Jolla1 phone.
New features (cf. prefs app) : WPM speed meter & logs sending form
