Welcome! In this tutorial, you will learn how to create a package. A package is a collection of files, compressed into a single file, just like a ZIP file. It is designed to make installation of keyboards, fonts and related documentation straightforward for the end user. When done, the package can be installed into Keyman Desktop through a simple dialog. Keyman for mobile apps can also download and install keyboards through the keyboard package.

We will be creating a Khmer Angkor package. You can make your own package based on the Quick French keyboard from the keyboard tutorial.
