I've got an Adafruit Trinket microcontroller set up using this USB keyboard tutorial, and it works great.
I'd like to set up my project to type a shruggie (
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ) when I press a hardware button.
My naive solution was:
But that only printed the underscores, parentheses and slashes, not the "hands" or the "face."
Is there a standard keyboard input method I could use so this device, when plugged into any Mac, will type out a string that includes Unicode (specifically Katakana) characters?
An ideal solution does not require configuring the machine before plugging this widget in, and doesn't require changing state on the machine -- although I'll take what I can get! :) (e.g., configuring Japanese keyboard support and toggling input source -- all of which is done blind since the computer can't give feedback to a lowly keyboard -- is un-ideal.)
