it’s a slow and methodical process. Step by step, extending an already feature rich window manager, molding it to one’s will. Fixing corner cases that invariably pop up over extended usage. Then adding visual flair with ricing scripts to enhance the user experience and keep it fresh.

Distraction free plugins for vim complete my particular setup which is now complemented by an artful desktop. Time to return to the other threads on this site which were always the original intent of this hardware (keyboard and layouts) and software detour to create a publishing environment..

is the ongoing evolution of the Planck layers.

Notable is the refinement of the Shift Layer symbol clusters from a 2x3 to a 3x2 (row by column) layout emphasizing the stronger index and middle fingers with conditional operators available on the left hand and regular expression symbols on the right. The accessibility of the Shift Layer symbols also made the Number and Symbol Layer overlays unnecessary, further simplifying the overall design.
