Adding a disclaimer about the colour is the easiest option to implement, though.

That would be the easiest option -- this is a great tool.

Hi there, I know that your topic is long ago no active, but with a hope that somebody how experienced with it can find me an answer.

Can I apply custom fonts onto the layout?

Great keyboard layout utility! Very easy to use.  I've already created several layouts.
Some suggestions:
  - Ability to select groups of keys (Alphanumerics, Modifiers, Keypad, All)
  - Ability to copy/clone an existing layout or make it a personal preset
  - Row labelling should be an automatic option when you indicate the row number in kb properties
  - Include popular fonts for variety.  It's hard for noobs like me to figure out how to integrate custom fonts

Also, I've tried to save my layouts as SVG, but the resulting SVG file does not have the labels.  Am I doing anything wrong?

Thanks and more power!

Rene

You can download the JSON of any layout, and import it again, to have your own variant. Not as easy as a clone button, but not too bad, either.

You can also create an account and save the layout as a private layout

I've been a big fan of this tool for a while.

I've noticed that development on it has been paused for over a year. This is understandable; there's very little left to be added and functionality wise it's nearly perfect.

However, I'm considering trying to add some new functionality, especially surrounding the interactions between KLE and other keyboard tools websites. Before I began working on it, I was just wondering if anyone else was also working on a similar project.

The current goal is to use the open source of http://kb.sized.io/ to implement git gist usage that can be shared between both sites, and try to get into the source of http://builder.swillkb.com/ for something similar. I'm also looking at taking the mechkeys pcb layout code (https://github.com/mechkeys/mechkeys/blob/master/layout.py), adding some additional functionality and integrating it with kb.sized.io. Ideally, this ability to use gists for save files and a unified json format for saving layouts will allow for future tools websites to be able to easily start up and integrate with the existing tools.
I typed this post on my Slanck. I also developed a stronger, cleaner, easier handwiring method.

I'd be interested in collaborating on a standard for the JSON format, so that more tools can use the gist directly. I'm maintaining my own version of swill's legacy code (http://github.com/skullydazed/kb_builder) and I have my own tool for generating EAGLE scripts to aid PCB development (http://github.com/skullydazed/kalerator). I'm also working on a QMK configuration tool (https://github.com/skullydazed/qmk_configurator), but that project is still a WIP and on hold while I wrap a few other things up.

Your PMs are off; can you add me on steam or PM me here?

My idea of the standard would pretty much just be building off the KLE gist, but allowing a better defined way for services to add their data without interfering with each other.

Shoot me an email at info@clueboard.co, or you can also find me on the keyboard community slack. Unfortunately I got too many PM's and couldn't keep track of them to make sure everyone got an answer. :/
