Icon of the iOS version of Wakalito

Wakalito is a keyboard layout and shape-based input method for entering Toki Pona words. It is based on the glyph components in sitelen pona rather than the Latin script. It was developed by jan Likipi, together with kala pona Tonyu and jan Tepo in 2020.[1][2]

Wakalito supports all nimi pu and nimi ku suli, as well as select nimi ku lili. It is currently available for iOS through the App Store and for desktop—on Windows 10/11, OS X, and Linux—through the open-source program Espanso.

The name Wakalito is derived from a shuffled combination of the first syllable in the creators' names: waso Likipi and kala pona Tonyu.

Keys[edit | edit source]

Under construction This section needs work:

Icons of each key, for a keycap template, primarily for a new table column so that the logic behind the inputs is obvious. Table should also include the sitelen pona glyphs. Add information for for physical keyboard.

If you know about this topic, you can help us by editing it. (See all)

There are 17 components and keys, mapped to the top-left rows of the keyboard. These can be typed using only the left hand.

Supported glyphs[edit | edit source]
