Just received my Ergodox-EZ today and the default layout doesn’t really work well with my OSX workflow so I made my custom layout using Massdrop’s Ergodox Layout Configurator:


Couple of important mappings to note is the Teensy mapping for easy burning of hex files, Esc is closer and so is LGui (command key), and function keys are reached by toggling layer1 ([~L1]).

Based on the instructions here, you need to do the following:

  1. Download and run the Teensy Loader app
  2. Press and release the Teensy reset button
  3. Click the “Auto” button on the upper right hand side of the Teensy-Loader window
  4. Drag and drop the ‘.hex’ file onto the Teensy loader window.
  5. Press and release the Teensy reset button

You can download the hex file here, enjoy your new layout!
