keymap.click: experiments in keyboard layouts

I’ve been dealing with RSI off and on for over 10 years. One of the things that has helped me recently is an ErgoDox-EZ. I want to show off my layout, and describe how it has helped me. keymap.click is the tool I’m building to let me do that.

See it work here.

It is currently available as a development preview, meaning it’s in good shape for anyone who wants to play with it or submit feedback or code, but still has substantial changes ahead.

I’m using this project to

  • Learn about web application development using Next.js, React, and Tailwind frameworks
  • Deepen my knowledge of CSS
  • Improve my writing – the most important aspect of this project is communicating what helped me and why, so the code only matters so far as it lends explanatory power to my words
