I have a Keyboardio Atreus on order. It is slightly different to the original Atreus, as it has 2 extra keys in the centre. Thus 44 keys in total. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/keyboardio/atreus/

I'm using the BEAKL-15 layout as my primary layout on my Ergodox keyboards (work and home). The layout can be seen here:
  https://configure.ergodox-ez.com/ergodox-ez/layouts/BNpaO/latest/0

But want to see if I can prepare for when the Atreus arrives. I would like to use BEAKL-15 on it too, but the 44-keys are a challenge (at least when it comes to KLA analysis as in only uses AltGr). Maybe the support of multiple programmable layers will come in handy.

As none if the KLA forks have support for the Atreus layout, I used my Ergodox and only limited myself to the keys similar to the Keyboardio Atreus. I was using a different KLA fork (the one from keyboard-design.com), and there Ian's X1 Ergolinear always scores on top. As I'm open to adopting a new layout I played with X1 as a start, and called my new layout "X1 Atreus/Ergodox 44-keys" - and it scores pretty well so far. As it only uses 44-keys, the finger travel is very low. I had to get creative with the X and Z keys, and adjust the symbol that used to be on them.

Attached is a screenshot and JSON layout file.

Next I'll be looking at doing similar by adapting BEAKL-15 for the 44-key layout. For real world usage (I'm a Java Software Engineer), I would definitely need access to Function keys, Arrows, Navigation keys etc. So multiple layers are required. Time to get even more creative. :-)

For those interested, here is the BEALK-19 Ergodox layout. The KLATest only had the Matrix version, whereas the Ergodox versions tend to score a little higher (I guess less finger travel).

I was wondering if the S was going to be overloaded on the index finger. :-)

Cheers, Ian

S on index is not the problem. The main issue were T and A on the ring fingers. Thus I forced them off.

updated KLAtest with new corpora: real estate ads, jobs listings, Beowulf in Old English

Beowulf will cause problems ... too many "not on keyboard" characters.

I have the Magna Carta in Latin and English (cleaned up) if interested.

English layouts tend to handle Latin okay. Odd :-)

Cheers, Ian

BEAKL 19 looks great on paper, however too much outward rolls felt awkward. So by borrowing its Opt config file, but restricting the most common letters 'ETA' to predefined locations, produced a more recognizable pattern of previous BEAKL layouts (HIEA), but with the low same finger rate of BEAKL 19.

Notes on naming convention. 'Arr' means reserves the left hand bottom middle key for the up arrow (the remaining arrows are placed below like a typical arrow cluster.) 29k means 29 keys (because taken one key out for the arrow). 1 is obviously the first iteration of this concept that I believe is viable for general public.

Sorry my confusion.

Added ASCII 19 to program and both beakl 15 and 19 check okay.

Think the problem with copy-paste of file from editor was that I was only getting the first 4096 chars (default line length)... when I over-rode the line length limit and reloaded, then it loads fine in KLATest.

Cheers, Ian

ASCII 19 is used in KLAtest to toggle numlock state.

Okay I can add it to my "known" ASCII codes for checking purposes, but KLAtest didn't like it ....

Will try fiddling and see if I can get it to load. Might be because the lines were so long? My editor complained but browsers should not care.

Thanks, Ian
