Ukelele: Mac OS X Keyboard Layout Editor (Experimental)

Current version: 1.8b3, released June 28, 2007

Ukelele aims to simplify keyboard layout editing by providing a graphical interface to ".keylayout" files, where the desired characters can simply be dragged onto keys as needed.

In addition to simple assignment of single character codes to keys, Ukelele can assign multiple-character strings and can create "dead keys", where a keystroke sets a new state that modifies the output of the following keystroke.
