HOWTO: Download a single keyboard folder from the Keyboards repository
The Keyman keyboards repository is very large, and downloading the entire repository may be time consuming and on unstable Internet connections, difficult to achieve.
See Keyman Cloud Keyboard Repository for details on how to work with the Keyboards repository.
This KB article lists two possible ways to download just a single keyboard folder.
First, locate the keyboard folder you wish to download from https://github.com/keymanapp/keyboards/tree/master. In this article, we'll be downloading the SIL IPA keyboard at https://github.com/keymanapp/keyboards/tree/master/release/sil/sil_ipa.
Use an SVN client
You can use a command line SVN client to download a single folder:
svn export https://github.com/keymanapp/keyboards/branches/master/release/sil/sil_ipa
This will export the sil_ipa keyboard into the
sil_ipa folder. A Windows
SVN command line client is available with sliksvn.
Use a web site to download a zip file
The website https://download-directory.github.io/ allows you to download a single folder from GitHub. Simply paste the keyboard folder, e.g. https://github.com/keymanapp/keyboards/branches/master/release/sil/sil_ipa into the form and press Enter.
This will download a ZIP file containing the folder which you can extract onto your computer.
