The Hoplite Polytonic Greek Keyboard facilitates typing polytonic Greek diacritics.

Project Description

HopliteKB-LibreOffice

LibreOffice Extension implementing the Hoplite Polytonic Greek Keyboard

For LibreOffice 5.2 and up on Linux, Mac, and Windows.

Features:

  • One key per diacritic
  • Add diacritics after typing the vowel
  • Add diacritics in any order
  • Toggle diacritics on/off
  • Breathings, accents, subscripts, macrons, breves, diaereses: no problem!*
  • Choose precomposed, precomposed with private use area, or combining-only modes.

* as long as your font supports it.

For best results, use a polytonic Greek font such as:

Use:

Use your usual Greek keyboard to type base letters. Use this extension to add diacritics. After typing a vowel, while holding Control (Command on Mac), press a key 1-9 to toggle on/off diacritics. The 1-9 keys are bound to:

  1. rough breathing
  2. smooth breathing
  3. acute
  4. grave
  5. circumflex
  6. macron
  7. breve
  8. iota subscript
  9. diaeresis

The key bindings can be changed in the file Accelerators.xcu. Then rebuild the extension and reinstall.

Options:

The options menu can be accessed on Mac from LibreOffice -> Preferences -> LibreOffice Writer -> Hoplite Keyboard. On Linux and Windows it can be accessed from Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice Writer -> Hoplite Keyboard. On all platforms it can also be accessed from Tools -> Extension Manager; then select the extension and click the Options button.

From the options menu you can select the Unicode mode.

  • Precomposed mode uses precomposed characters when possible, falling back to combining diacritics for combinations where a precomposed character does not exist in the Unicode standard.
  • Precomposed with PUA (Private Use Area) mode is the same, but also uses the precomposed characters from the non-standard Private Use Area. These characters are not standard Unicode, but are supported by some fonts such as New Athena Unicode and IFAOGrec Unicode.
  • Combining-only mode uses combining diacritics to type decomposed characters. Few fonts handle combining diacritics well at this point; New Athena Unicode is currently the best.

There is a detailed discussion of these differences here.
