I’ve just add Hyphen (U+2010) and Minus (U+2212) to the menu.
Sorry about the long delay for this update, but there was a huge conception error in the last version that was prohibiting easy update as just adding the character in the list. I had to rethink my code, but it’s now solved
Been so long since I’ve been around, 'cause work is taking me away from a lot of things…
But I’m still alive!
About the extradev branch, indeed it was not published because unfinished. You can still find it on GitHub it was not deleted, but I can’t guarantee it’s working. I remember something stopped me in that dev, but I ‘what?’ remains the question.
I assume you’re asking because you miss some chars in the main branch. I still can add some of needed. Just ask
And I will have some time at the end of July, I’ll take a look on this code to see if I can finish it or if it’s really a dead end.
I’ll keep you posted.
In the meantime, any comment or bug report on the current release or on the extradev branch is always welcome on GitHub.
I have submitted some code on the main version, to add Multiplication Sign, Wave Dash and Corner Brackets:
And also on extradev version, to allow navigation in 2D (handling up and down arrow keys).
And also the same Multiplication Sign, and CJK Wave Dash and Corner Brackets, but in CJK category (not a country), so it looks a little bit strange, sorry.
Maybe you would come with an idea, before I start making your script going in weird directions:
Alternatively, instead of at the end and/or in a separate CJK category:
I can put the Wave Dash with the other dashes (EN, EM) and
I can put the Corner Brackets with the other surrounding same meaning punctuations, like Double Quotes
Our I can put them in a JP category, where they are most used for MB, I think.
I have to check the commits, but using ‘JP’ as code is the right way. You should now see a Japan flag for your section ^^ (hopefully, or maybe I didn’t pushed that change, can’t remember).
Also I think it’s time to write what I hope to do with the future version.
First, a new look for the menu. Mainly only the chars displayed, plus a description and magnifying when moving the mouse over the char. That will allow having more chars displayed at once.
But there’s also a ‘hidden’ plan. I want to propose optional ‘language packs’ (this is why I introduced the country code) that would be downloaded directly from the repository, with periodic check for update. Diacritics, Greek and even your new JP pack would be optional by the end.
This would be done using a configuration menu (not yet implemented).
The config menu would also add some more functions, as:
Add or hide chars to a language pack
Create custom language pack
Save and restore configuration
As you can see, there’s a lot to do to achieve what I want to propose. Will be a long journey…
Next step for me, write the full ToDo list, with priorities. Hopefully this weekend…
@jesus2099 I committed you PRs, and fixed the pack name for JP in extradev. You may want to update your repository and try
Btw, there’s some glitches in 2D navigation, for up and down now, but it’s really better than it was Fixing this won’t be my first priority, I want to start with the settings window for additional language pack.
Then I have to take care about language updates, and I want to rework some pieces of the code.
After that, I may rework the menu a bit (it’s ugly IMO). And finally the rest of the settings: hide/add characters, save/restore, and so on.
I didn’t see the whole discussion about the extradev branch, and created a PR against master this morning with some small changes to make it work in Safari as well and update the look of the menu to be more MB-ish.
