Oh look promising You should edit the spacebar to look more prominent like the stock L keyboard

The overall color should a bit darker and a bit more color to some keys. Still the current one look pretty cool. hope to see more from you.

Look nice and nearly L's keyboard, but if it's possible, the spacebar still need to look more prominent, I mean it need brighter color than other keys or some way to distince it from others. Keep up your good work

I tried making the same, but problem is that nothing is defined as "spacebar "key in the drawables of the keyboard I think the keyboard achieves it by merging several phonepad keys (assumption based on observations 😉), so at this stage it's not possible 😐

Thanks for the headsup, it was already on my "to do " list... I'll try to make the white skin on stock keyboard "material"
