    If going DIY, you can go with a split keyboard that supports choc, like the kyria, or corne. Or go with any ortholinear keyboard and spring swap or use lighter switches like gateron clears. Additionally there have been rumors that the EcoSteno may be proxied in the EU in the future.

    did you program the Pro? the .. instrcutions arnt clear on how to do that before you solder. (just did mine last night, and found some stuff out the hard way) On my version, I had the Diodes, TSSR & Rset soldered. then followed the programming guide ( And THEN windows detected it. (windows 10, fwiw) ... **Huge warning, if your version has the 'oled' jumpers, make sure to short them ASAP. I didnt, and had to de-solder my OLED sockets & do it with my pro soldered in. (NIGHTMARE) hope that helps.

    I moved to an ergo keyboard, with colemak mod-DH key layout, customized for my coding and emacs needs. For hardware, I specifically use a corne keyboard, though there are many many other options which would allow for similar use. The primary goal is a more ergonomic layout accounting for natural finger movement (vertical columns with minimized horizontal movement), hand shape, and a key/letter layout which also minimizes unnatural movement (again - horizontal) and movement in general.

    It's essentially a folded Corne keyboard [1]. I like how you can adjust the vertical position of each row, that's definitely new. Over all this is a very cool direction to take ortho linears.

  • Is it better to use lighter switches on split keyboards comparing to non-split ones?
    I'm going to build a new split keyboard, Corne, and I'm stuck about the choice for the switch, thinking whether I should get a lighter switch comparing to my usual liking.
  • A Project I've Been Working On...
    Inspired in part by SplitKB's Kyria, Afternoon Labs' Breeze and the ever-popular Corne, I'd like to introduce the Wren, my first keyboard design.. It's effectively a Breeze with a more pronounced pinky stagger, a southpaw numbed, and rotary encoders on both sides. I've been wanting to switch to a split lately from my Prime_O, but I spend a lot of time in Excel at my day job and wanted to keep a numpad around. After seeing the Breeze, and with a ton of help from ai03's PCB design guide, the wheels started turning and this is the ultimate result. I wanted to post it here to make sure I haven't make any egregious errors in design before I move on to software, and to see if this is a layout that makes sense to someone other than me. If you'd like to take a look the KiCad files and find a little more information about the design, you can find the project's Github repository here.
