Karabiner is a software to modify keyboard keys’ behavior on macOS. Karabiner-Elements currently replaces it because macOS Sierra entirely broke Karabiner.
My personal rules for Karabiner-Elements 0.91.12 and later are available here! Move it to
Here are the current rules:
- For TypeMatrix 2030 keyboard:
- Change desktop key to escape: useful in Vim, using the right thumb.
- Swap left option and left command: keep Apple’s layout for command and option keys.
- For Apple keyboards:
- Swap right options and right command: to have AltGr under the right thumb (useful when using the Bépo layout).
No need to make profiles, TypeMatrix’s rules are automatically enabled when a TypeMatrix is plugged in. Same thing for Apple keyboards.
