Nithya Malayalam keyboard layout defines a keyboard layout to input Malayalam script. The layout design is inspired by the Inscript layout as defined in the m17n ml-inscript.mim. Infact, this layout is more than 95% backward compatible with Inscript layout as defined in the m17n (ml-inscript.mim). All Malayalam characters with unicode code points in Unicode version 6.3 has been included. The design of Nithya keyboard layout also considered Inscript 2 as defined in ml-inscript2.mim when selecting key positions for Malayalam. However whenever the Inscript 2 is conflicting with Inscript, priority has been given to Inscript.
The input method is still under development.
