History of InKey
The first version of InKey was created by Daniel McCloy in 2008, and was available only through limited distribution channels. InKey 2.0 was released to the public in 2015.
History of InKey Mozhi Keyboard
In March 2015, a discussion in the Nalla Malayalam Facebook Community, some members raised the issue that they are facing while typing Malayalam in Windows platform using the existing typing tools. The tools that they are using started giving issues from Windows 7 onwards. The 32 bit/64 bit version also added more issues with the existing typing applications. Also some of some of the existing software that they had used had become paid software. Hence the requirement for a new solution arose. This requirement from Malayalam windows users was reported to the InKey development team. Inkey Mozhi is the result of this request.
The InKey Mozhi Keyboard is written in Tinker Keyboard Description Language. The source code of the InKey Mozhi keyboard is available online at github. If you are interested in creating your own keyboard (or modifying the Mozhi to match with your own preferences, you can do so by downloading and modifying the InKey-Mozhi Keyboard.

- While testing it is reported that in some cases the second keystroke is losing if the same key had to press twice. There are cases in the Mozhi keyboard layout where need to press the same key twice. For eg. to obtain ട്ട്, you need to type ‘tt’. However on all other systems, it worked just fine. We are still investigating this issue and a solution is yet to be found. If you experience this (or similar) behaviour, please report it to the the developers through the Forums page.
- The ‘nta (ന്റ)’ is not represented as per the current Unicode standard. This is because most of the current Malayalam unicode fonts still follow the non-standard way of representing ‘nta’. However we will soon include an alternate way of typing the standard form of ‘nta’ in InKey Mozhi.
