Earlier this year I mentioned a tutorial on creating custom keyboards using iOS 8’s new custom keyboard extension feature, and if you’ve been trying to create a custom keyboard for iOS 8 you know that there is no standard template available from Apple for easily creating your own keyboards.

Here’s a library submitted by Arnaud Coomans for creating easily customizable keyboards that mimic the look of the standard iOS system keyboard called ACKeyboard.

While maintaining the look of the system keyboard ACKeyboard is created using Core Graphics so you can easily add new custom keys to the keyboard by providing characters or images.

The ACKeyboard keyboards automatically adapts to the device it is shown on, and comes with expected features such as capitalization, repeat and delete, end of line punctuation like the built-in keyboard.

Here’s an image showing ACKeyboard in action:

You can find ACKeyboard on Github here.

You can also read more on the MobileCraft blog.

A nice library for creating custom keyboards.
