What comes in the box
How small is it?
The easiest way to get a feel for the size of the Atreus is to download and print this papercraft version.
Connecting your Atreus
Depending on what kind of device you're using, the instructions for connecting your keyboard may vary a bit. We wrote a quick guide to what kind of cable you should use with your Atreus.
Getting started with your new Atreus
You can find a guide to setting up your keyboard, installing Chrysalis, and updating the firmware on your keyboard, in the Keyboardio Atreus Getting Started guide.
Typing on your new Atreus
With just 44 keys, typing on the Atreus is a little different than typing on a traditional keyboard. To get you started, we've written a brief tutorial about how to use the Atreus' stock layers.
Customizing the key layout
The easiest way to update your keyboard's layout is to use Chrysalis, our graphical configuration tool for Windows, macOS and Linux.
You can download Chrysalis at https://github.com/keyboardio/Chrysalis/releases. As an example of how to use Chrysalis, here's a tutorial on how to add a caps lock key and here's one on how turn the "Fun" key into a "Fun" lock.
Open source firmware
The Atreus is powered by Kaleidoscope, a comprehensive open source firmware for keyboards. Kaleidoscope is based on Arduino, so it's really easy to get started with.
