Flexible firmware for Arduino-powered keyboards

Getting Started

Pick a directory to work in, you'll need to clone multiple repositories. We'll assume you picked $HOME/kaleidoscope, if you chose another adapt the commands below accordingly.

Setup the Arduino IDE

Setup the Arduino IDE on your system. Make sure you install at least version 1.6, since older version may not support all required features.

Install the Kaleidoscope Hardware Definitions

# you'll need to know your arduino sketchbook directory

# on macOS the default is
# on Linux the default is

# make a directory for kaleidoscope, the Model 01 firmware
mkdir $HOME/kaleidoscope

# go to your kaleidoscope directory
cd $HOME/kaleidoscope

# then clone the hardware definitions
git clone --recursive

# and make them available to the arduino environment
mkdir -p $SKETCHBOOK_DIR/hardware/keyboardio
ln -s $HOME/kaleidoscope/Arduino-Boards $SKETCHBOOK_DIR/hardware/keyboardio/avr

Clone and Build the Kaleidoscope Firmware for the Model 01

# go to your keyboardio directory
cd $HOME/kaleidoscope

# then clone the firmware repository
git clone

# and build your firmware!
cd Model01-Firmware

make flash

# When the builder tells you to hit return to continue,
# hold down "prog" on your keyboard and hit return.
