Add Ukrainian and Russian

Under Consideration

The keyboard is quite good but the lack of Ukrainian pushes it into the background.

Please add Ukrainian language asap.

Mordor (Russian) language support is also required.

Hi Sergiy, we will add new languages in future updates. Russian seems a bit tricky as it's a different alphabet, and we'll have to put some thoughts into it first. But it will definitely come! Keep you posted. Cheers, David

Hi David.

Hi Mikhail - that is really neat, thank you! If we had to place the 123/Emoji button next to the Return key (bottom, second from right), how would that change your setup and would that be a severe problem?

With a sketch like this, we could implement Russian quite easily!

Thanks,

David

I think russian users' expectation for "б" and "ю" characters at the right bottom of the keyboard is very strong. I don't know how to fit "123" button at the right bottom of the keyboard with the given number of buttons.

The only other solution I see is to change the layout: make rows 7-6-7-6-7 instead of 6-7-6-7-6. If you go this way you can also insert character "й" at the current place of "123" (and remove "й" from sharing space with "и").

As for me, the extra hex line is always better than two characters on a single key. The only character for russian layout that can be put on a single key is "ъ".

I like the layout. Additional help required. Or split buttons for "э-х" and "б-ю" only.

Я трохи не впевнений за quickly, земляче, але те, що ця тема вже тут - вже зарок того, що мова колись з'явиться і на цьому продукті.

If the source code of the keyboard is closed.

Could u add the ability to self-add keyboard layouts?

And the problem with the Russian layout would be solved by the users themselves.

More it is desirable to remove the lower case and leave the visually visible only uppercase letters. On the likeness as embodied in Fleksy keyboard.

We'll have to implement first the auto correction / prediction bar, which is what we're working on right now. This will take a bit of time. Then I propose that we add you and the others to our Beta as soon as we start working on Russian, so you can give us feedback on the concept and we can improve it.
