[ Japanese | English ]


IMKit-Anthy is a Japanese inputmethod plugin that implements the InputMethodInterface of Qtopia. It worked on Zaurus (SL-5500, SL-5000D, SL-B500, SL-C700).

Install this software to OpenZaurus/Opie is currently not recommended. It will be supported well by next version (0.4.0). Some configuration matter should be solved to support It.

About IMKit-Anthy

The software consists of two parts.
  1. IMKit - a lightweight framework to construct complex inputmethod such as Japanese kana-kanji converter.
  2. An IMKit application using Anthy which is preexisting kana-kanji converting engine.
Although this software is designed to input Japanese, some parts are useful for other purpose.






Development Status

imkit-0.4.0-pre2 has released as developer preview. This uses Asian input method support of Qtopia 1.6.

imkit-anthy-0.3.5 has released. This release includes a new IM plugin, imkit-uim.

I think that you should be known that a exciting project has begun. Yusuke TABATA, a core developer of Anthy, has written an IM framework based on Scheme named UIM.

UIM enables that an IM server module (written in Scheme) can be used with gtk-immodule, emacs, vi, and so on. I will adapt IMKit to his framework, so Zaurus gets several new IMs. If you interested to write an IM code for any natural language (not only Japanese), join the project.
