Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 22
  • Last updated: (DATE)
  • Tracker bug: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>

Detailed Description

There are existing input methods such as phonetic and itrans, each input method has limitations. With phonetic input method you can't input half width characters and similarly while itrans you need to type additional keystrokes which always annoys users. People who have familiar with English language prefer to use such input methods. So as name suggests devaglish is nothing but input Devanagari characters using Latin characters.


Benefit to Fedora

Easy,Effective and speed:

   To type word "anish" in Marathi using phonetic input method one has to type sequence as "FniS" while with itrans input method one has to type "anisha". 
   In given example user often expects "अनिश" to be appear with keystrokes "anish".
   This new input method will try to solve this problem.
