Will Skritter implement Hentaigana?


#1

Hi,

As of June 2017, Unicode has implemented the whole set of Hentaigana (the historical variants of kana), which roughly amounts to 300 or so characters.
Since it’s actually coded in Unicode, I wondered wether or not Skritter could implement them as well. I think it can be deeply useful to those studying classical calligraphy and classical literature.

This is awesome, I hadn’t heard about 変体仮名 being added to unicode yet. Since there are unicode points, It could be mapped the same way that kanji or hiragana/katakana is mapped, so this is definitely possible. We wouldn’t be able to get around to this until a lot more higher priority things have been taken care of, of course, but it would be quite useful for those studying classical literature.

Glad to hear !
I myself am not ready to tackle such advanced matters as classical literature yet, but as I plan to do it someday in the future, I hope I’ll be able to use the help of Skritter. No rush here.

Thanks for your quick response anyway !
