Using Kanata to remap your keyboard

Thanks to Crafters hanging out on the IRC channel, I learned about Kanata for remapping keys. I use a split mechanical keyboard and miss the conveniences of layers and homerow mods while on my laptop. So far, Kanata has been an excellent option for me.

To continue with my goal of creating more approachable guides to technical topics, I wrote an article on Starting using Kanata to remap any keyboard, with a focus on not only what to do but why we’re doing it and with some background around what these different pieces of configuration mean. My hope is to simplify the first steps for someone without a programming/IT background.

Let me know if you have any feedback or questions!
