Step 4: Compile the lexical model
Before use the lexical model, we must compile it. In this step, the
.tsv wordlist and
the model definition file get compiled
into a single
.model.js file. This file is the one that Keyman
uses internally to generate suggestions.
Later on, we will bundle the
.model.js file into a
lexical model package so that Keyman apps can install the lexical model.
In Keyman Developer project view, select the "Models" tab.
Click on the
.model.js file in a build subdirectory of the lexical model project directory.
This concludes the lexical model tutorial. Here's what's next:
- Now that the model is built, we are ready to distribute our lexical model.
- (For advanced users) We can do some advanced customization by modifying the model definition file. Advanced customizations require a some comfort with modifying code!
