A ToDo and Bug list

Here are items we know need to be fixed or features we would like to add.

On / Off chord

Add a chord that stops all keybord signals being sent to the host until it is pressed again. Usefull for putting on your coat or other times when you don’t want stray keys sent.

Currently I (Greg) do this with a seporate switch that disconnects the ground line to the chorder’s keys. An On/Off chord would eliminate this switch. However it would also introduce some uncertanty unless perhaps it was combined with the an LED signal. Perhaps slow flash? Or mabey one signal for entry into “Off state” and a different one for exit from “Off state”?

mini trackball

Look into making the spiffchorder a composit device and add functionality to support a mini-trackball

extra modifiers

add the ability to have dedicated modifier keys (like a conventional shift or Control) that just send that code along to the host.

add LED support

Add support for the 3 optional LEDs, showing the internal state of the SpiffChorder.

minor repeat problem


Some multi-key chords when repeating give an incorrect final character, for example, a string of “=” will end with an “e” as in


The incorrect character corrisponds to the unmodified chord.

fix macros to clear state


Currently Macros don’t clear the state of number mode, this needs to be fixed. The “work around” is to hit the inner thumb to generate the space after the macro as this then clears the number mode. Not a long term solution.
