daily beakl

saturday, 16 january 2021

the current keyboard layout daily driver is BEAKL Wi**.

This page consolidates information which may be ommited from the layout write-up, with inherited layers or features described elsewhere. It is presented so one doesn’t have to search the site for the remaining pieces of layout information. Newer layouts being evaluated will likely also inherit most of the layers and features on this page.

This page will be updated whenever a new layout in the rotation achieves the status as the main daily driver.
