Autosuggest for Tamil in Android Keyboard

Screenshot of Tamil autocomplete

Screenshot of Autosuggest working in Tamil on my variant of the Android keyboard. I’ve been working on this on and off for the last few months (this is also my final year project in college). I’ve ported all of the jQuery.IME languages to work on the keyboard natively.

Now experimenting with Autosuggest. It only needs an appropriate dictionary now and we’ll be good to go. Currently I’m getting Autosuggest working only on Tamil, but the plan is to get it to work for all Indian languages. The method I am using (convert everything back to latin chars, then do autocorrect / autosuggest) means it should be trivial to extend to any transliteration based input method.

Wheeee! This is very much a simple ‘celebratory’ post. Will blog actual details soon.
