粵切輸入法 Jyutcit IME (this one is actually good)

Recommended Posts

ParkeNYU

Jyutcit, aka 粵(語反)切, requires only basic Cantonese literacy (69 common characters), the 26 keys of the English keyboard, and two keystrokes without tones (or three with tones) per character. Anyone possessing mild familiarity with Jyutping will easily locate the desired keys on the keyboard, and the more complex finals are laid out in an intuitive way (based on the official Jyutping order). Overall, this input is roughly twice as fast as Jyutping and easy to learn, with only a tiny sacrifice in accuracy compared to strict Jyutping spelling, although intelligent prediction sufficiently mitigates this minor concession. Think of it like a 'Double Jyutping', but better, cleaner, and more intuitive.


Here is a one-page quick-start guide PDF—easy as 1-2(-3)!

This IME uses RIME (中州韻輸入法), which is free for Windows, MacOS, and Linux.

If you would like to download Jyutcit, just let me know!

I'm not bringing up any app called tRime on Google Playstore.

 

EDIT: Turns out you go to the link in the first post, find where it says "支持 Windows XP SP3, Windows 7+, macOS 10.7+, Linux (IBus, Fcitx) 下載更多版本" then click on 下載更多版本 and scroll down till you find a direct download for the Android version. I don't download from those sorts of links so I don't know whether it works.

I was able to get trime directly from the Google Playstore, so perhaps it's a regional thing?

Search on the Google Playstore again for 'trime', but look for the result named 同文輸入法 by Rime.TW, whose logo is a 'ㄓ'.

Odd. It's on Playstore today, but I couldn't bring it up yesterday with any variations of tRime.

@ParkeNYU How do you create IMEs on tRIME? Is it a similar process to making it on the PC?

@Nightcap

It's the same as creating a normal RIME IME, except you have an additional file called trime.custom.yaml which holds extra information, like keyboard displays.

Where do the files go on Android?

In the main Android file directory, there should be a folder named trime—just drop the files in there, then deploy from the app.
