The left hand of the ErgoDox is "perfect"..
Could someone on here make this happen? If so how much? How much for the full build generally speaking?

Just join the infinite ergodox drop.
The infinite ergodox has two independent halves, you can connect either or both to the computer. The two halves can communicate over a USB 3.0 cable, which is really neat.

Well, it seems that last drop just ended xD.
Just my luck, I requested another drop. 

Did you see how much it was before it ended?

$160 for just the kit. Switches were at least $30 extra. I forget how much caps were.

How did you miss it? It was up for about a couple of weeks!

Signed up, thank you. I'm from the UK so shipping may be a bit pricey. We'll see, this will be such an awesome edition to my man cave I can't wait!

The FalbaTech's PVC case is symmetrical; there shouldn't be any problem using it with the controller on either side.

It's symmetrical left and right... But may not be symmetrical top to bottom. Remember... If the controller is on the left half, it'll be on the bottom of the PCB... Not the top.

LEDs on the left (MCP23018) side!  :cool:

(Attachment Link)

Sorry for the blurry pic.  Right now they only light up at init and go out after a second so not enough time to get a good snapshot.

I mounted them so they show out the inner side.  The MCP23018 will only sink current so it would require hacking the PCB to get LEDs to work under the keys.

Here is the modification.  Resistors for LEDa and LEDb are in the same place as the Teensy side (they go to pins 9/GPB6 and 10/GPB7).  LEDc resistor is in the shrink wrap going to pin 27 (GPA7).  The 3 red wires are +5V.  Resistors are all 330.  LEDs are LTL-433 (flat) series.

(Attachment Link)

They work a bit differently than the Teensy LEDs.  State changes are not immediate.  The LED settings are piggybacked on to the normal traffic going to the MCP23018.

I've attached the diffs against partial-rewrite branch.  All they do is flash on during init.  If I can figure out where the "current layer" is remembered I will probably use them to show the layer.

Took a shot at adding leftleds to my ergodox. But I decided to go with the leds under the caps. Here's how it turned out:

I've been looking at the code and I noticed something interesting: the ErgoDox has a sideways matrix. Does anyone know why it was designed that way?

I've posted on github a way to change LCD logo on the ergodox with something personnal. In my case Dansgaming "dangasm" emoji.



This not perfect but how care..

I always thought it'd be cool if people could program games or whatnot on the LCD screens. Seeing that guy program a version of whack-a-mole on his keyboard (Razer? Cooler Master?) made me think of the games etc. we can do with our keyboards on the hardware level.

I'm excited! I joined the drop and this will be my first MK. A guy in the MD discussion had this idea of LEDs that ripple when you touch a key. Is this possible with the infinity? Can each key have a LED installed or only certain keys?

Love the custom images on the screen, will def do that as well.

I apologize if this has already been mentioned, but what's happened with Ergodox.org? It looks like it didn't get renewed, does anybody know who the primary contact for maintaining the website is?

Hello

Does someone have a blinking lcd when switching to other layout? For example I'm want to switch to 1 with a key on the right keyboard, the LCD of the right keyboard stay pink while pressing the key but the left lcd blink few milliseconds in pink then return as normal.

It's not an issue for first layer for the left hand but I don't understand why I have this.

Since the original Ergodox.org domain doesn't appear to be coming back, I've registered Ergodox.io designed to be a replacement documentation style site. I know it still needs a lot of work, I'll be working towards improving it over the coming weeks.

PR's and Github issue requests welcome.

Hello

I have this layout .

I build the config on osx but I have an issue. The key selected (in red on the capture) map correctly backtick only when left hand is plug. When both hands are plugged I get ~.

I have a custom bash script where I've mapped the kll generated from input club website, I also use a custom kll for lcd screen : https://github.com/benoittgt/controller/blob/master/Keyboards/ergodox.bash#L26 



Do know why I have those errors? I have the same issue with on other key but for all the others, not problems.

Cheers

PS : config files are here : https://github.com/benoittgt/controller/tree/master/Config_files_from_input_club
