So, I was wondering - what do you all think of a QMK configurable keyboard for the Framework laptop?
My keyboard of choice is an Ergodox EZ that I have customized to some rather incredible lengths( https://people.zsa.io/jenna-kenshin/ ). Particularly, I have become used to the concept of having my Ctrl, Alt, and Super(Win) keys being mapped to my f, d, and s keys, as well as my j, k, and l keys(tapping the key produces the letter, holding engages the modifier). Now, when I am typing on another computer, or when I remove my keyboard from my desk and try to type without my keyboard, I end up encountering a great deal of typing mistakes because I will try to press and hold the j key and reach for the w key to close a tab.
I’d like to be able to make that an option on my framework laptop. One of the worse things as an Emacs user is having to try to use a laptop keyboard to operate the program, as it is very dependent on the Ctrl and Alt keys. Furthermore, in my quest for a nearly mouse free life, I have come to rely on the super(Windows) key to do things like open applications, take screenshots, and move windows around. Most laptop keyboards only have one Super key. Additionally, and I can already hear the collective groan from nearly everyone, I hate dedicated arrow keys - they are so useless.
Is there any plan, or have you considered or thought of having a QMK firmware based keyboard for the Framework Laptop? If your interested, I’m thinking of something like the https://www.zsa.io/planck with an extra row or two of keys…
