Thanks Hasu, you're a wizard!  Here's the output, the keyboard is accepting input now.

Great.
Updated source code at github repository. Now you can download new firmware from Keymap Editor.

qk6339zmdm:
Thanks again Hasu!  Your updated firmware works!

antony:
i use a computer that only accept a German keyboard! And I can't change to my favorite one, US ASCCI or ISO International  After a year I am getting better at using DE keyboard.  Still it feels slowing me down. I  use vim, screen, tmux all day, think of  [], {} with  the Alt Gr combinations. 
So I would like build a hardware keyboard mapping translator. Would TMK be able translate from a English keyboard to a German keyboard? Is there a TMK firmware or an examples of mapping a layout to a German keyboard layout?
Any pointers before I order the hardware?

hasu:
This is not trivial and you have to write C code to implement it.

You mean that you cannot change 'keyboard layout' setting on the computer and it is German, right?
Layout of your 'physical' keyboard is not that matter here, but let's assume it is US ASCII for sake of simplicity.


For example, when you press '[' on your US keyboard you will get '' by default but you want to get '[' here.
To get '[' char on the computer the keyboard(conveter) have to send scan code for 'RAlt + 8'.
This can be done with `ACTION_MODS_KEY(MOD_RALT, KC_8)` relatively easily. See line 96 and 230.

And you want to get '{' char when pressing Shift + '[' on your US keyboard. This is more complex. The converter should send scan code for 'RAlt+9' but it have to cancel Shift before sending the code.
See line 146 and 240.

I implemented Default(0) and Shift(1) layer for trial, and it seems to work during my brief test on Linux. Note that keys tweaked with `CANCEL_*` function can't do key repeating.
