GSoC organization applications are now open. I have a project idea in mind for Indic Keyboard:
Emoji Search For Indic Keyboard
This idea will cover the following:
- Add a better emoji search (major part): I have contributed a basic emoji search to the keyboard, but it’s not perfect and can be done more efficiently with a better UX.
- Better suggestions strip view: For long words the current suggestion view is not good. Especially for malayalam, making long agglutinated words are good in current Indic Keyboard
- Finishing Varnam integration: I have worked on it for some months, it’s almost done 90%
Indic Keyboard now has a beta version with basic emoji search. For this to merge in stable, there are a couple more things to fulfill: Next release · Milestones · Indicproject / Indic-Keyboard · GitLab
This is something separate to look, but still an idea (Requires C++ & Java) :
- Gesture type text for Indic Languages (no keyboard has gesture support for Indian languages)
Last year we applied for GSoC, but didn’t get accepted. What can we do to increase our chances for getting selected for GSoC ? Have any other projects in mind ?
