programmable keyboard rant 

things programmable keyboards can do:
- macros
- layers
- operate the mouse
things programmable keyboards can't do:
- use capslock as a modifier

re: programmable keyboard rant 

@jookia Why not remap the keyboard events on the OS level? I did it like https://github.com/kris7t/keyboard_remap/blob/master/keyboard_remap.py with evdev, but probably there’s a less messy way. It also works on non-programmable keyboards, like the laptop’s internal one (but not while the computer is still booting).

Although using caps as a modifier is probably doable with just xkb.

@kristof it's probably not possible

re: programmable keyboard rant 

@jookia @kristof I'm pretty sure that it's definitely possible

re: programmable keyboard rant 

@fcktheworld587 @kristof ok, so is there any proof of this?

re: programmable keyboard rant 

@jookia @kristof Figure out what's being sent when you press one of your existing modifier keys, remap the Caps Lock to send that.

re: programmable keyboard rant 

@fcktheworld587 @kristof i don't want to remap caps lock?
