Dvorak Programmers-Qwerty ⌘



I've been looking into making the switch form QWERTY to DVORAK and like the concept of the Dvorak-Qwerty ⌘ keyboard layout for a mac which will leave all my apple button shortcuts the same.

However is there a version of this for the programmers Dvorak layout?

Mac OS X contains a built-in Dvorak keyboard layout. All you have to do is switch to it. – Cody Gray – 2012-06-03T10:50:59.797

anyone find an answer for this question? Is there a Programmer's Dvorak Qwerty ⌘ layout (on OS X) ? – Cashew – 2012-09-26T03:49:45.760


@CodyGray The built-in Dvorak keyboard layout is different to Programmer's Dvorak (http://www.kaufmann.no/roland/dvorak/images/dvp1.png)

If you use Evil mode in emacs. You can turn on Dvorak mode just for evil-insert-state, and remain QWERTY in all other modes as well as all emacs key bindings. I've been using it for a while trying to improving my Dvorak typing speed, but at the same time so not want to relearn all the emacs and vim keybindings.
