Keyplus aims to be an easy to use keyboard firmware with support for wireless and wired split keyboards.
Currently in beta so lots of stuff still might change.
Keyplus Flasher GUI
Just download the EXE file.
Clone the repository and submodules:
git clone https://github.com/ahtn/keyplus git checkout v0.3.3 # or master for the latest version cd keyplus git submodule update --init --recursive
Next install the packages
Next install python dependencies by running:
pip3 install -U keyplus
Now you should be able to run the program:
cd host-software sudo ./keyplus_flasher.py
NOTE: if you are having issues with missing python dependencies, make sure that
they were installed with
pip3 because python2.7 is not supported.
Flashing without sudo on Linux
To connect USB devices on Linux without using sudo, you need to add the appropriate udev rules to set their permissions. To do this run the following commands from the keyplus directory:
sudo cp host-software/etc/udev/rules.d/50-keyplus.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/50-keyplus.rules sudo udevadm control --reload-rules sudo udevadm trigger
You also will need to unplug and reconnect the USB device you want to use.
Using the GUI
When starting with a new keyplus mini board, flash the latest firmware, configure the device and RF, and configure the layout, in that order.
Flashing the firmware
Download the latest firmware from the releases page. In the drop down box at the top of the window, select "Firmware Update". Then, click the "Browse" button and select the firmware file you downloaded. Plug in your keyplus mini (or other compatible board), and you should see it appear in the bottom box.
Click the "Program" button, and it should flash the firmware onto the board. If it gives an error, try again.
Configure the device and RF
In the drop down box at the top of the window, select "Device and RF". Then, click "Generate new RF settings", and save the file somewhere. Click the "Browse" button next to the "Layout settings file" box, and select your layout YAML file. Input your device ID, and click the program button that is next to the board you want to program. If it doesn't work, try again.
To make the layout file, see here.
Configure the layout
In the drop down box at the top of the window, select "Layout". Click the "Browse" button next to the "Layout settings file" box, and select your layout YAML file. Click the program button that is next to the board you want to program. If it doesn't work, try again.
Currently building of the firmware has been tested on Linux.
