The default base layer, using [Colemak](https://colemak.com/). 21 2. A Symbol layer, so all symbols can be accessed from the home row. (top right legends) 22 3. A Navigation / Media layer, with both sound control and arrows on the home row. (bottom right legends) 23 4. An international / Emoji layer so I can type accented characters commonly used in France and in Hungary, as well as a few Emoji I often use. (top center legends) 24 5. A keyboard control layer, not pictured above, allowing me to control the LED lighting as well as the keyboard debug functions. 25 26 ## Changelog 27 28 - 2018.12.20 29 - 2 new Macro keys, to invoke [Alfred](https://www.alfredapp.com/) and [1Password](https://1password.com/). 30 - No more Right Command key or Expose key, I didn't use those much. 31 - Updates to use newer QMK function to call ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 32 - Fix: you can now move back to the base layer when double tapping the thumb keys to switch to the Nav layer. 👍 33 - 2018.09.06 34 - Initial submission to QMK. It's alive! ⌨️ 35 36 ## Credits 37 38 - Redox keyboard design by [Mattia Dal Ben](https://github.com/mattdibi/redox-keyboard). 39 - This keymap is based off the default keymap for the Redox keyboard, available [here](https://github.com/qmk/qmk_firmware/tree/master/keyboards/redox) and also build by Mattia Dal Ben (thank you!). 40 - This layout uses [QMK keyboard controller firmware](https://github.com/qmk/qmk_firmware/). 41 42 I've also read posts by [Gergely Nagy](https://asylum.madhouse-project.org/blog/2016/10/15/multi-purpose-keys/), [Rebecca Le](https://sevenseacat.net/posts/2018/unicode-in-qmk-on-osx/), and [Justin Rogers](https://implementsblog.com/2016/10/16/my-ergodox-ezs-custom-layout/#comments) for inspiration.
