MiniVan Configurator is Live!

more_vert
Hello Mech community!
I wanted to officially announce that the MiniVan configurator is Live! I have recorded a demo showing off some of its features as well as giving some info on what to do with the hex file once generated.
On another note, the configurator is open source and can be adapted to any keyboard using TMK.
Sincerely,
- TheVanMan

Hello Evans, I have the arrow build of the minivan, and when trying to use the default layout didn't get arrows working properly. Any idea? Will it be fixed? Can you confirm the bug?

Oh silly me... I thought I was using the firmwared that I got when using the arrow layout. It works now.... Duh! Sorry for the silly noise :)
PS: Would you allow the users to use a repo of differents layouts? I'm thinking in creating my own based on HHKB, and being able to switch back and forth from one to the other from the webpage would be awesome.

That's a really cool idea, I'll have to look into how to implement that. In the meantime you can save off the raw output that is generated on the site

Great tool but there's a bug around number pad keys. If i try to set a key to say "KP0", site returns a file not found for that hex file. In the last test, it gave me this bad url: "http://minivan.config.thevankeyboards.com/downloads/tv44_2016-12-31-04-21-47.hex". Can't tell if the url is bad or there was an issue compiling the hex file.
Also, sometimes the save configuration doesn't seem to not write back to the rawmap text area. I have to get the config from the buildKeymapJson function directly.

I'll take a look! I have some changes coming that make saving and loading a bit more streamlined

why do you think the key code is wrong? what key does it register as inside your os?

Good approach- especially considering that people are skeptical about 40%s to begin with.
