Welcome to the QMK Configurator.

Using the QMK Configurator is a quick and easy way to get your keyboard layout designed.

https://config.qmk.fm/#/1upkeyboards

Step 1: Select your 1upkeyboards PCB from the list.

Step 2: Select your layout from the list.

Step 3: Name your map.

Step 4: Configure your keycap color.

This step isn't necessary, but is a great touch if you own any of the keycap sets listed.

Step 5: Change your layout.

Drag your keys from the bottom table to the empty layout.

Step 6: (optional) Add a layer.

Choose Quantum from the list.

Choose MO - which stands for Momentary Layer turn on. This means that this layer will turn on when holding this key down. Now add the layer number. Note that here, I chose Layer 1 and on the layer list to the left of the layout “1” has turned from grey to black.

Step 6a: (optional) Configure your new layer.

Clicking on the left layer 1 will allow you to configure that new layer. Note the downward triangle, means that this key is reserved by the layer below.

Step 7: (optional) Add a soft reset to your configuration.

This step will make it easier to flash your device in the future as you won't need disassemble your keyboard to press the reset button.

From the Quantum list. Choose “Reset” and add it to your configuration (typically this is added to an obscured layer so that an accidental press doesn't occur).

Step 8: Compile.

Press the compile button, and wait for the server to complete your request.

Step 9: Download.

Now that compiling is complete, the firmware button will no longer be grey. Click it to download the firmware.

*Remember to download your JSON so you can easily edit your configuration in the future.

Step 10: Flash your device.
