Thoughts on this layout?
« on: Wed, 21 June 2017, 19:44:08 »
Hi everyone. I recently made a numpad using a pro micro that I wrote some code for. My next project is a full keyboard. I currently have an eagle schematic done for the board, and I just need to decide on a layout.

My goals for this project were:
  • Split
  • Backlit (rgb but probably not individual keys)
  • All functionality of a tkl (I rarely find myself using the numpad I built and can easily program a numpad layer in)
  • Dedicated media keys
  • Profile compatible with a 104 key set from Maxkeyboard (since they do custom backlit legends relatively cheaply)

And this is the layout I came up after a few hours of going back and forth between different designs. What are your thoughts on it? Any feedback is appreciated


Another note: I actually find it more comfortable to have my arrow keys under an fn layer so I don't have to move my hand to a new position.

Shift    ASDFG

ZX  B  CV 

;   UIO   '

HJKL     P     Shift
NM   Y    ,.

These changes are ideal for split layout without compromising main qwerty structure and fingerings.

I use them on ergodox
