Is there any way to change the candidate bar colors?

Right this second, no. But it's on my list, and actually it's quite near the top of it at this point I beleive. I am leaving tonight and will be out of town for the weekend, so it won't be until end of the weekend/early next week at soonest, but I'll try to get it incorporated asap.

Cool! That sounds great thank you for your hard work.

hey gimp, any way you could add something to the kitchen that would fit with dark edge? i know this is the nexus forum, but i know you're on droidforums too. i can post a pic of the stock kb they use with it, if that would help make some keys for the htc_ime..

chicao cubs,punisher logo...this is for space bar

I posted the Cubs logo that I used when I made my custom keyboard if you're interested. It's on page 36 at the way bottom. (Think it's post #360.) It's already resized according to spacebar specifications.

hey why are my custom spacebar images so small? How can I make them bigger?

What do you mean??? high res/low res? one you are uploading? one from the kitchen? Need some details!

how do i install any of this skin? dont have link to download the skin like previous... im not up 2 date with this apps... Thanks

Generate in kitchen, download, install as regular app.

Right, what rori said. Read the first post, register for an account, it's super simple!

Can i use this keyboard for htc hero (on sensehero rom?). and how do i revert back to the original if i have a problem?

Should be able to use the low res version, you can simply uninstall it to revert back (or if you are using Jonasl's htc_ime, unthemed, currently just install that).

I'm back from an incredible vacation! Thought of a few changes for the kitchen while I was gone. Hopefully later tonight I'll have some energy to make some changes and add a few keys to the library.

    The reason I've been slower at posting requests lately is about to come clear!

    I have created an "online kitchen" of sorts for creating custom skinned, signed, HTC_IME high and low res apk files. This means you guys can very easily create your own skins and customize the ones I've created!

    What is this?

    A website you can visit on your computer or directly from your phone that will let you a> create a custom skinned keyboard based off of any of the images currently in the library (various colored keys, backgrounds, etc) with whatever text color you want and b> customize existing "skins" (will be known as "presets") however your heats desire.

    Currently, it should be considered very beta. All the features that are here should be working 100%.

    Why beta, that sounds scary?

    It's beta for a couple of reasons, 1 because it's currently UGLY as sin (concentrated on features and back end first) and 2 because I'm actively working on it which means it could break at any time.

    What is the point of this?

    Besides the fact that you can now customize the hell out of the way your keyboard looks, it drastically reduces the amount of work I have to do in the future. Currently, i'm uploading 46 pre-themed apk files for every single update. While this isn't really a big deal since I automated the process, it slows down how quickly I can put up updates. With this new method, all I have to do is upload the original unthemed keyboard apk and classes.dex for each new version and my work is done!

    Everything else:

    If you select a preset, you will still be asked to choose each portion of the keyboard (background, buttons, text color etc). The image with the yellow border around it (you'll see what I mean) is the default "piece" for the preset.

    One last thing, depending on server load it could take anywhere from 30 seconds to 5 minutes to generate the keyboard. Most of the time I suspect it will be < 1 minute tho.

    I don't mind if you use this to generate a keyboard and include it with something (theme/morph) or post it somewhere, just give due credit :)

    Pre-themed/Pre-built skinned keyboards.

    Custom skins for Jonasl's HTC_IME high res.

    These are signed with the exact same certificate that jonasl uses so if you can install his, you can install these and go back and forth with no problem.

    These are no longer flashable update.zip files, all you need to do is download the zip file, extract the HTC_IME_hi.apk to your sd card and install with a file manager (linda, or something that supports reinstalling for future installs).

    Special note, if you have not already installed v22 or higher, I highly suggest you read Jonasl's thread here for important information regarding this keyboard. You will need to re-enable and completely reconfigure this keyboard after installing (only if you haven't already done v22+).

    One last note, there is a new hi res Clicker.apk available too. I have not included it in these downloads, you will need to get that from the official HTC_IME Mod download if you haven't already! Update: or get it here -> Clicker_hi.zip

    v24 links removed because v25 is now available in the kitchen, screenshots represent some of the many themes you can create there!

    Sir. gIMpSTa

    First off I would like to say that your site is amazing. I have made several custom keyboards for some popular roms on XDA Vibrant Development Section using your site (All props went to you in all of my posts) and had no problems until now.

    When I go through the steps to Create custom primary/function keys as i have done before, I get as far as this step,,,,,

    >The next step will automatically take place on another server and load in an iframe below this text. You must wait until you see the "All Done!" message before continuing.<

    The "All Done" Text never appears. I takes several minutes and page stops loading like before but never shows up. when clicking on the button to go to the next step, just loads an error page.

    If I go through the steps to make a keyboard using pre-existing keys, No problems.

    Looks to me like the server that is linked to that "Create custom primary/function keys" is not working.

    I used 3 different internet connections with 3 different devices, Makes no difference.

    has anyone else been having the same problems???

    Please look into this and let me know, Thanks

    Thanks for the kind words!

    And thanks for pointing that out to me. My VPS had locked up, it is being restarted right now!

    Edit: This is fixed! Thanks again.

    This is great, got it to work on my Moto Atrix using the v27-optus 2x as the base (whatever that means) BUT it sits over tot he left of the screen with a gap on the right, it is possible to have it modded for the Atrix either slightly bigger buttons OR sit it nicely in the middle?

    It looks and feels lovely just that minor thing to make it perfect :)

    Unfortunately there isn't a whole lot that can be done (at least by me, at this time) for resolution issues. I can take a look later but no promises that I will be able to do anything.
