The temper is a split, wireless-only mechanical keyboard by Raeed Chowdhury (aka Chowderdude/raeedcho), derived from the chocofi.
First foray into ergonomic mechanical keyboards! After evaluating all the available options, I decided to tweak the design of the chocofi to make it more friendly for wireless setup – Raeed.
It started as a simple modification of the original chocofi PCBs to include battery pads and power switches for wireless use, but in the end, the author thought there were enough changes to warrant giving it a separate designation. However, this design remains compatible with chocofi cases and plates.
36-key split keyboard (3 rows x 5 columns + 3 thumb keys per half)
low profile, Kailh Choc spacing
Sweep-like column stagger (with pinky columns 2 mm lower, like chocofi) with Corne-like thumb cluster
Reversible PCB (can be used for both halves)
Intended to be used with nice!nano
Uses 7-pin SPDT power switch and includes pads for battery on keyboard shield PCB
