I use multi ling O https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=kl.ime.oh
It has layouts or plugins for most natural languages, IPA, and some other things. A slight learning curve but once you get used to it it's pretty quick.
If you do not have any constraint with keyboard, you can try MultiLing O Keyboard + AutoText plugin.
With the extension, you can specify let's say
And other expansions of your choice as such.
Multiling O Keyboard isn't open source, but it doesn't have internet permission and can be set up however you like. Here's an older comment that goes into more detail.
I use a smartphone. You'll learn how to thumb-type after doing it enough and I can somewhat competently type quickly on it. Not to the degree I can on a real keyboard, but any port in a storm, right? I apparently learned on an iPod Touch 2G which has an awfully tiny screen. I use an LG Sunset which has a pretty decent screen, bigger than the iPod's by far.
If you have an Android smartphone, try installing different keyboards to find something that fits how you type. I settled on something that allowed custom key placements because I need the spacebar on the far right of the screen to actually hit it, but I'd have stuck with the default LG Keyboard for my phone if only I could actually increase its vertical size in landscape...
You can either write in an email to yourself or write in a text document and email that to yourself, or so on. Then you can copy and paste that into your main document and edit it accordingly, italicize and bold, etc.
(yes I'll charge my phone)
If you are using Android, you can write Hanacaraka using this keyboard ([link]) and install this plugin ([link])
Android Marshmallow and above can read Javanese Script automatically (not sure about iOS), no need to install another font
I have big love for Multiling O Keyboard right now. It's basically a DIY/build-it-from-scratch keyboard. It can take a little bit to get into, but you can program in every single key, and build the perfect keyboard of your dreams with enough dedication.
(Screenshots make it look ugly, but customization is enough to get a very modern look)
Multiling O Keyboard supports quick toggling between languages and allows custom keys (if you can type or paste it, you can assign it to a key).
I recommend it pretty often so more information and examples are easily found in my comment history. If you need help setting it up (it can be confusing), feel free to message me or ask on their G+ page.
I use this keyboard app, which is very customizable. The word prediciton and auto-correct functions are not the greatest though (but you can individually turn them on or off for different languages).
You have two options that I know, both have their own caveats:
The lightest keyboard you will ever find. Really,really customizable. Disadvantage: Gesture typing need to be very accurate on each key.
TouchPal. Not so light, but has great gesture typing and easy gesture to input symbol. Disadvantage: Gesture typing doesn't support instant bilingual typing.
Multiling O is feature rich and you customize just about everything including the height. I think it has good autocorrect but that's entirely subjective though.
It's also really light weight, only about 1.65 MB used after installation. Gboard uses around 90 MB
I just made a copy of this app / layout using Multiling O. It also hasn't been updated recently, but the functionality is pretty great. If you look through my post history you'll be able to find it.
This app pretty much makes your keyboard infinitely customizable, but it doesn't let you nest every key type.
I have no idea how well it works with Chinese, but it's worth a shot.
Multiling O Keyboard if you like customisation. Pretty much everything about it can be tweaked to your liking.
Kii Keyboard 2 Unfortunately it was taken off the Play Store, but it's based on Google Keyboard before it became so bloated/GBoard, and I really like it.
Multiling O Keyboard can do all of those things, but you have to edit the layout. Here's a past comment that goes into more detail about what it can do and how to edit your layout.
It can be little confusing to get set up, but feel free to ask for assistance. Or, I can just do the editing for you if you tell me what you want each letter's alternative character to be.
If you block data permission, then you should be good.
If you are interested in something like KALQ, you might want to try Multiling O Keyboard. It allows you to customize the layout, but it's not FOSS—it lacks data permission, though. Here's a link to an older comment that goes into more detail.
Multiling O Keyboard can be made to be as simple as you wish—small, no permissions. You have to train predictions, but I think they are pretty good after doing so. The only downside, to me, is the auto-space isn't as smart as the top keyboards.
Here's a comment that goes into more detail and shows how to edit your keyboard.
You can still get and use Swype, but if you want to change: Multiling O Keyboard. I go into more detail regarding what it can do and how to set it up here.
Multiling O Keyboard can do this, and it works with both tap and swipe typing. If you use it with swipe typing, you have to key swipe to the top of your keyboard for capitalization and to the bottom of your keyboard for alternative character (or reverse it, if you want). If you tap type, small flicks will suffice. This is a keyboard level gesture setting.
You could alternatively do it on a key by key basis. Or, use 4D keys which would allow you to assign up to 5 characters to a key—one on tap and one for each directional flick.
Alternatively, you could use multi-tap keys.
Here's a recent comment that goes into more detail.
Edit: It also has undo and redo functions, u/slowdr.
Multiling O Keyboard let's you create your own keyboard—add/delete keys and/or rows, customizable appearance (key shape, size, spacing, transparency, etc), can map any character to a key (if you can paste it from your phone or computer, you can map it), multi-character keys (such as an email address), 4D keys (different character input for tap and each directional slide), multi-tap keys (one tap for a, two for b, three for c, etc), edit gestures or keys (clipboard, cut, copy, paste, undo, redo, select word, select all, delete word, arrow, etc), space bar cursor slide, two alternative layouts accessed from slides or locked with long press (others could be assigned to gestures or keys), floatable, text prediction in fields GBoard doesn't support, and more. Active dev that responds and is open to feedback/suggestions, ~3MB, and no permissions.
Its word prediction requires that you increase/decrease word ranks (example: swiping "time" and getting "tome"—increase the ranking for "time" 1 or more times), but it's very accurate once you do so. The only flaw, in my opinion, is the auto-space insertion—it's not as smart as, say, Swype. If you tap-type, it's not an issue. But, if you swipe and use more than simple punctuation, you'll likely have to delete a space occasionally.
It can be confusing to set-up, but feel free to message me if you give it a try.
Multiling O Keyboard lets you create custom layouts. Here's a recent comment that goes into more detail.
Multiling O Keyboard with English and Spanish dictionaries and a custom theme/layout is ~3 MB. Swipe typing, supports Spanish, and extremely customizable (add/delete keys/rows, alternative layouts, remap keys, etc). Here's the button guide, which will give you a better idea of what is possible. It's a little confusing to set up, but feel free to message me if you need some help.

J'ai utilisé celui-ci sous KitKat, et il fonctionnait franchement bien ! (et il est encore maintenu, il semblerait !)
BÉPO intégré, manipulation à deux mains...
"Multiling O" does only need minimum persmissions, has a crazy amount of features/customizations, payment is based on donations.
Certainly lacks in the aspect of not being open source.
I used SwiftKey for a long time, switching between it and the stock keyboard, and Swype, and TouchPal and Multiling O Keyboard. The last of these, MultlingO is what I've ended up sticking with.
For Android, you can use Multiling O Keyboard, which is very customizable (although not so easy to use at first). I'm sure you'll make it work if you guys fiddle around with it a little bit.
Here's the URL:
Multi lingo keyboard A keyboard with all the computer keys like ctrl, alt, function keys, etc and user defined layouts. As in, you can decide which key to place where
"Ive tried them all", im now stuck on Multiling O and im not looking back. The initial setting up can be intimidating, but after you set it to your liking, youll wonder how you could go a day without it.
Multiling O Keyboard is the closest I know of. Pretty much everything in it is changeable & you can customize where each key is. Unfortunately you can't move the individual keys completely outside of the keyboard layout, as far as I know.
After reading your post I tried termux and went "wow!" - thanks for the hint!
If you're still looking for a keyboard, give Multiling O Keyboard a try. Heavily customizable, even with ESC, CTRL-C, TAB and stuff. Build your own. If you manage to get along with linux, the learning curve won't be too steep.
My two cents, as a lurker.
If you are willing to spend a little time setting it up, I'd suggest Multiling O Keyboard. You can have edit actions (cut, copy, paste, undo, redo, delete word, etc), cursor movement keys, etc.
Here's a past comment that goes into more detail and gives you an idea how to do some of these things.
Multiling O Keyboard might be a solution, if you're willing to switch keyboards. It has an extensive emoji selection, and you can add to it. You can also create custom layouts, so any character can be assigned to a key.
Here's a past comment that goes into more detail about the keyboard.
Multiling O Keyboard allows you to create custom layouts. Here's a comment that goes into more detail.
Multiling O Keyboard allows you to assign characters to keys. You can easily switch between layouts so you could access it in about a second. You could even assign these characters as secondary and use them with flicks from the regular e, x, etc keys or setup multi-tap keys. Here's a comment that shows how to edit your keys/layout.
For u/twerps, u/andy2na, and anyone else looking for a keyboard that allows you to modify your layout: Multiling O Keyboard.
I won't go into detail here, but there's plenty of comments in my history that demonstrate how to do things or elaborate on what is possible. Here's one with video. If you have a question or decide to give it a try and need help, feel free to ask.
A few features off the top of my head: custom layout (add/delete keys/rows, multi-character keys, 4D keys with different input from tap and directional swipes, etc), space bar cursor slide, suggestions in fields not supported by GBoard, assignable gestures (swipe up on a letter to capitalize, swipe down for alternative character, two finger swipe left to select last word, etc), tap and swipe typing, Google voice key, full screen text field optional, multiple language support, multiple layout support, two quick access alternative layouts, clipboard and edit actions, optional number row, etc. No permissions nor data access so no privacy concerns.
Multiling O Keyboard can do this. Here's a recent related comment, which also links to a more in depth comment.
If wanting a dedicated punctuation key, you can assign up to 5 to a key (one on tap, one for each directional flick). You could also do alternative character gestures on every key, so flick up on "a" gives you "A" and flick down gives you "?" or whatever the symbol assigned is.
I just learned about Multiling today and am in awe. Can swipe and move stuff around like I've never seen before.
Little bit of a learning curve, but beyond anything else I've seen on any OS.
P.S. Swiping for text isn't that good so if that's your primary input method, its prolly not for you. For tap typists, however, the added swipe gestures are a godsend.
Multiling O Keyboard allows you to create multi-character keys, which would accomplish this. The easiest way would be to make your AltGr layout all of your multi-character keys, which you could then quickly access by dragging from the AltGr key to your intended selection and releasing.
Here's a recent comment of mine that demonstrates editing your keyboard and how the AltGr key works.
Multiling O Keyboard. As long as you can enter (type, paste, whatever) the character, it can be assigned to a key. If you are wanting it to still display the English characters on the keys but enter another character, that can be done, as well. You could also use directional keys and assign a different character input for each key direction used—so the h key, for example, enters h on press and other characters with directional swipes.
It's not FOSS but doesn't require internet permission at least.
Seems to be the best non-FOSS swipe input keyboard that deserves trust. Also extremely customizable.
An alternative, that will allow you to have a large message field with any app, is to switch keyboards. Multiling O Keyboard, for example, can fill the screen with just your keyboard and text field.
You can create custom layouts, define keys, create/delete rows, reshape keys, etc, so you can set it up however you like. The added "F" key in the screenshot is an example of that.
Multiling O Keyboard is extremely lightweight, like 2 MB. I'd say the accuracy is on par with, or very close to, GBoard and SwiftKey (I only swipe, so I can't comment on tap typing) and it's easily the most customizable keyboard available (custom rows, keys, etc).
I don't know about readymade options, but Multiling O Keyboard can do this.
You create your own layout (rows, keys, alt, etc) in a browser/text editor and copy it over, so as long as you can input a character, you can bind it to a key.
There's a lot of settings and it can be confusing, but feel free to message me if you need some help.
Multiling O Keyboard allows you to create custom keyboard layouts (number of keys, characters, functions, alt layouts, etc). The key assignment is done in a web browser and copied over so as long as you can input the symbol you have in mind, I'd presume it would work just fine.
It's extremely customizable, but the learning curve (if delving into the options available) is steep compared to other keyboards.
Multiling O Keyboard
It's lightweight and fast. It's also extremely feature rich and customizable, but it has a steep learning curve if trying to take advantage of some of the more advanced customizable aspects (such as remapping buttons).
Those two and the AOSP keyboard are basically your only options, sadly. Everyone else seem to be recommending stuff that's no better. This one is admittedly quite unwieldy, but:
No internet permission
Highly configurable, you can probably get it how you want it
Swiftkey is number one for me, however some time ago it became laggy for a while and I used <strong>Multiling O</strong>. If you want a light, fast, super customizable keyboard, it's worth a shot. Predictions are not so good though.
Not a single open-source swipe implementation out there. If you can deal with its default settings and not-fancy swipe implementation, though, this one doesn't connect to the internet.
I too, was a diehard TouchPal user ... I would put up with all the crap bloat it came with, just to have the flick up/down on keys for alt characters/symbols.
Or sometimes I'd download old outdated versions from other sources.
I have finally, reluctantly given up on TouchPal and have now settled on gBoard.
I've lowered the long-press delay time a lot, which does make things a little more bearable. And the space bar slider thing I've grown used to and it's very useful, as is the backspace slide-y feature.
But if you haven't, check out Multi Ling
it's very customisable.. if I remember correctly, you can make different characters for flick up/down etc.. but it takes a fair amount of time/patience to get everything set how you want it. You can modify every little detail when you get right into it.
Minuum for being interesting and the implementation of the idea is great in practically way. I don't actually use it though, since I'm working on my own custom layout with Multiling O.
Does anyone know of any t9 keyboard for Android? I've been looking for a long time for a t9 keyboard just like flip phones used to have but I've never been able to find one.
Edit: I was able to find this: [link]
It has what I wanted but it isn't the most polished keyboard so I'm open to trying any other names that people know of.
i am using this [link] , changing between chinese and english is just one tap away, also the keyboard layout and looks is really customizable if you're into that kind of thing
I don't think it's right for everyone but I've been using o key for 3 years now and except from the dodgy swipe guessing every now and then it's perfect. I can make it look exactly how I want it to. :) See my setup
If you can't find one, an alternative is to switch keyboards to one that has this option and use it with any messaging app. Multiling O Keyboard can do this.
It has a few niggles, but I think they are made up for with what it can do that other keyboards can't. It can be confusing to set up, but here's a past comment that goes into more detail. Or, feel free to ask if you need help.
Multiling O Keyboard would be my pick.

If you don't value customization over user friendliness and refinement, I'd go Samsung keyboard, GBoard, SwiftKey—in that order.
Very glad I go for plus instead of normal one, but they only have 128gb black on stock (last one!) so paying a bit more than expected (almost double the price of Mi Pad 4 8" 3GB RAM, but totally worth it).
Live in Malaysia so the distributors/reseller price is not so bad ($380 includes extended in-house warranty, buying online can get a bit cheaper but I prefer to buy electronics at store).
Already applied for bootloader unlock, 720h wait is real sigh
Anyway already installed google play services and some keyboard because gboard tablet doesn't have one-handed mode so I choose This Keyboard Last time I use this was on Galaxy S. Bit hard to setup but I like the customization option
After Swype was killed I also started looking for a replacement and so far like Miltiling O keyboard but it must be said that predictions are not the best.
I hope it will improve predictions as the feature set is the only one that suits me and can replace Swype. I also hope that those will improve over time (by training).
URL if it's allowed: [link]
Multiling O Keyboard is the only keyboard that offers this on Android, I believe. It can be confusing to set up, but here's a past comment that goes into more detail. Or, feel free to ask if you need help.
You can accomplish this with the keyboard level gestures, but it's more of a pull than a flick. If you use directional keys instead, it is a quick flick action.
If you dislike SwiftKey and GBoard, your options are pretty slim.
I use Multiling O Keyboard; it has a few niggles, but I think they are made up for with what it can do that other keyboards can't. It can be confusing to set up, but here's a past comment that goes into more detail. Or, feel free to ask if you need help.
Multiling O Keyboard with a custom layout. You can make your own, but it can be confusing at first. Here's an older comment that goes into some of it, but feel free to ask if you need any help.
I can recommend Multiling O Keyboard. Small, no permissions, swipe support, multiple languages, almost infinitely configurable layout. New words are stored in your local dictionary only.
Multiling O Keyboard can do this. Here's the button guide. It's a little confusing to set up, but feel free to message me if you need some help.
Multiling O Keyboard can do this. Here's a recent comment with a bit more information.
Multiling O Keyboard is by far the most customizable keyboard—add/remove rows or keys, quick access alternative layouts (long press or slide from AltGr or Sym keys), multicharacter keys (such as an email address), 4D keys (different character assigned to each key press direction), etc. Added bonus of text prediction in fields that GBoard doesn't support. It can do everything you listed and more, but there's a bit of a learning curve when setting it up. If you decide to try it out and need some help setting it up, feel free to message me.
Multiling O Keyboard is probably the only one that can satisfy all of the requirements, but it can be confusing to set up.
You can turn off autocorrect, prediction, and swipe. You can create arrow keys, word forward and backward keys, and select character/word forward and backward. You can also have cursor dragging on the spacebar.
You can create 1+4, 3+2, and 4D keys which allow you to slide alternative characters. They are the same in function (allowing up to 5 characters per key—1 tap and 1 for each slide direction), but display the alternative characters differently on the key. You could alternatively create multitap keys. Tap once for m and again for a period, for example.
The settings portion is dated design wise, but you can customize the design of your actual keyboard. Here's the button guide.
You could set up most phones to be pretty basic and user friendly. If you needed to really keep it basic and limit access to settings and apps, maybe even a restricted profile. All phones have accessibility settings for those with limitations, but I don't know how helpful they actually are. There may be a more niche product/method available that better suits your needs, though. Maybe there's a subreddit for parents that have children with similar conditions? If so, they may have some input.
As for the keyboard, I'd suggest Multiling O Keyboard. You can create custom keyboard layouts—add/remove keys, add/remove rows, change key sizes, create multicharacter keys (such as entire sentences), etc. It's kind of confusing to set up, but I'd be happy to help if you need a hand.
I'm going to guess Multiling O Keyboard is the closest thing you'll find. It's a little confusing to set up, but you can create 4D keys (different input for tap and swipe each direction), expanded options like you mention, key slide>second layout, multicharacter buttons (like an email address on a single tap), etc.
The button guide is here.
If you are willing to set it up for her, Multiling O Keyboard would be perfect. You can create custom layouts (so you could even put fewer keys per line, increase the number of lines, dedicated punctuation keys to eliminate long pressing for different characters, shortcuts, etc), define key sizes, and define the long press delay to a very long period of time.
It's very customizable so it might be a little confusing at first. If you opt to go with this keyboard and need help setting it up, message me and I'll set it up per request and export the settings and layout.
Multiling O Keyboard. It can do all of these things and is by far the most customizable keyboard available, but setting it up is not as straight forward as other keyboards.
a.i. Type Keyboard can also do these things.
You can create entire keyboard layouts with Multiling O Keyboard.
You can edit the bottom bar with ai.type.

If you're on Android and you don't want to program your own keyboard, this keyboard allows you to make your own layouts, though documentation might be a bit sparse.
Have you tried Multiling O Keyboard? I'm having fun with the customizable layouts, but it looks like there is already a Korean one.
Multiling O Keyboard + emoji: very customizable, has a number of Chinese inputs methods to choose from as well as English input, lightweight, and the autocorrect is ok to me
Google Keyboard Zhuyin: material design, good Chinese and English support, emoji, and the autocorrect is also ok to me
Since I've already donated $40 or $50 to it, I'm gonna say Multiling O Keyboard.
Honorable mentions: System UI Tuner, Taskbar, Clip Stack
This was made using Multiling O which has a plugin and swipe typing.
I did some basic bigram-frequency analysis to decide on key placements. This was my corpus.
This is the keyboard layout which you can copy and paste into the html-based keyboard editor.
So you want your menu to look like this, then you'll scroll to the bottom and click apply.
To get to the above menu, you click the gear icon > Layouts › DIY. You can also navigate to Layouts by holding the space key.
When you're on that menu you need to click on the "Main (shifted)" field and delete everything in it. Also, make sure that there are no extra spaces before you click Apply.
I would not doubt that one bit. Just Google "ai.type breach" and you'll see that it's probably not a great idea to continue using that keyboard. And, you know, probably change all your passwords.
If you use that keyboard primarily for the customization, I'd suggest checking out Multiling O Keyboard. Here's a comment that goes into more detail about its features and how to set it up.
If you absolutely can't give up that keyboard, maybe try using something like App Cloner to completely remove its data permission. But, some apps refuse to launch if you remove certain permissions, even if they are non-essential. Since it has billing permissions, it may refuse to launch if you remove data.
So I remembered seeing a post or two on here regarding different fonts and appearances of other peoples usernames, clans etc. I was interested in that, but after a search, couldn't find anything definitive that seemed to work/read properly on both Android and iOs devices, which was the dealbreaker for me.
However, I figured out a keyboard app (on Google Play, I am unaware of an iOs version) that transforms your text into a few different formats, and is readable by both android and iOs devices. I checked with my clanmates in chat, as well as global, and got confirmation they all are seeing it as a different font. I am unaware of what android builds or ios versions they were running, but it seemed solid through and through.
The app I used was Multiling O Keyboard. Now, I also had downloaded the Cherokee plugin, but that wasn't rendering, so I'm pretty sure you don't need that to continue.
Install multiling and set as your default keyboard.
Open CoC and type something in chat.
Before you send it, press and hold the cog in the lower left hand corner and drag your finger to "transform".
There are a few options, but I got confirmation that "wide", "a b c" (with circles around each letter) and "BIG" all read properly on android and ios.
Confirm the change, and your text will render that way. The imgur album I linked to provides examples of wide, big and abc in chat, as well as my newly changed username using the "wide" format.
Please be aware that if you choose to change your username, it's final. While I confirmed myself that both Android and iOs devices were reading it properly, you may want to do the same in chat before you finalize any permanent changes.
Hope this helps someone! I couldn't find a definitive answer or "how-to" on this topic and was very eager to have my username appear different. This is how I did it!
EDIT: The pictures in the album don't show my clan or global confirming that ios was reading it, but I did receive confirmation from both chats. Again, confirm for yourself before proceeding.
You can customize this keyboard to any extent
Multiling O Keyboard
You can fully customise every key and its position and much more.
Small, massively customisable, almost zero permissions, no feature bloat.
Multiling O Keyboard is a super tiny keyboard with an insane amount of customization. Basically everything can be tweaked to your liking.

Multiling O Keyboard + emoji
There may be a cleaner way, but you can create a custom layout with Multiling O Keyboard—assigning Ctrl+R to a single key, .APR to a single key, etc. Here's the button guide and here's an example of adding the Ctrl+R key. Once that's done, use an automation app (Tasker with AutoInput, AutoMagic, etc) to automate the key touches and delays.
Since you're using Ctrl+R, I'll presume you don't need to do screen queries and move the cursor around.
If rooted, you can directly enter text (without automated touches), but I'm not sure if macros work with that.
If you need some help setting up the keyboard or automated input, feel free to message me.
It's not open source, but it does not require the internet permission.
I threw together a custom keyboard (Multiling O) to use with your Anki deck.
Note this is for learning on Android devices and doesn't have any of Plovers capabilites. It's only purpose is so that you can look at a keyboard similar to the Plover keyboard while you study on Anki.
So you want your menu to look similar to this, then you'll scroll to the bottom and click apply.
To get to the above menu, you click the gear icon > Layouts › DIY.
When you're on that menu you need to click on the "Main (shifted)" field and delete everything in it.
Make sure you copy the "Source text". You should be pasting 3 lines with no extra spaces.

Build your own - Multiling O Keyboard
It's got every option you'll ever need
Muliling O Keyboard can do this. Pretty much everything in that keyboard can be tweaked, including the colors.
Multiling O Keyboard can be floated. But a better solution is probably a screen rotation app, like one of these.
Taskbar may also be helpful in this sort of situation.
Multiling O Keyboard. You can make the space bar the entire bottom row, put as the top bar, on the left, or wherever.
I mention a bit more about it in a recent comment. Setting it up is quite different from other keyboards, though. Here's the edit page and an example of editing the space bar. Here's the button guide.
Multiling O Keyboard is the only one you can get this level of customization with. It's a little confusing to set up compared to other keyboards, though.
You can assign gestures or keys to select all, cut, copy, paste, clipboard, undo, and redo.
Gestures to move cursor. Single movement and more dynamic movement.
I'm not sure if you can select while moving the cursor, but I don't think so.
You can assign alternative characters to up, down, left, and right key flicks.
You can assign undo to delete up flick.
You can have a number row.
There are 3 kinds of assignable shortcuts: single touch slide, multi touch slide, and slide and hold.
Here's the button guide, which will give you a better idea of what is possible. You can have separate layouts that are quickly accessed from AltGr and Sym keys (hold to lock or slide to revert after selection). Multi character keys, such as an email address. Delete, add, and independently resize keys.
If you need some help figuring out how to do something, feel free to message me or ask on the Google+ page.
EDIT: I was incorrect. You can select text while moving the cursor.
Multiling O Keyboard, but the customization might be a little confusing at first.
MultiLing O Keyboard
This one. But configuring it is hard
I use Multiling O Keyboard, because you can type using the x-system with it, as I am used to from my PC.

Maybe try some customizable keyboard app, for example something like this?
Multiling O Keyboard
Basically build your own keyboard, even from scratch if you want to. This can be fun if you're a programmer or really love customization. There's tons of syntax you can play around with to make anything from directional keys to keys that open apps. This keyboard even has a clipboard manager and тεχт tͭrͬaͣnslaͣtͭiͥoͦns, l̶o̶o̶ɔ̶ s̶ı̶ ʞ̶u̶ı̶ɥ̶ʇ̶ ı̶ ɥ̶ɔ̶ı̶ɥ̶ʍ̶.
Most of the screenshots make the app look pretty primitive, but if you play around with the settings and theme you can make an extremely functional, modern looking keyboard.
Also if anyone wants my setup to start with, here ya go. It's a bit compact/complicated, but I just like having plenty of actions on one screen.
You too can type this way...

Multiling O Keyboard can be almost anything you want it to be.
Other than that, maybe Keyboard 69.
Multiling O Keyboard with the optional QW_ER_TY layout sounds like what you are looking for.

I don't think there's much you can do about that in GBoard outside of increasing the keyboard size, which indirectly increases the space bar height.
Multiling O Keyboard let's you adjust the bottom row's height independently or add padding to the edges. Or, you could even create a custom layout and add another row below the space bar, move the space bar to the top/wherever, or assign it to a gesture.
Go here in settings to easily get dictionaries and plug-ins. Suggestions are built through usage and ranking so don't expect them to be perfect out of the box, but they are on par with GBoard once fine-tuned. It's pretty confusing to set-up, but feel free to message me or ask on their G+ page.
You can adjust the bottom row height independently. You can resize or move the space bar. You can assign space to a gesture.
Multiling O Keyboard and the English plugin.
•You can turn off prediction, autocorrect, and automatic options.
•The dictionary is linked above.
•By far the most customizable keyboard. I touch on that some here and here.
•It has emojis, but you can just leave them off of your keyboard or delete them.
Yep. Here it is in a video.
EDIT: Play Store
Sorry, I don't think it's available for iPhone. I use Multiling.
Simple? It can be, if you set it up to be.

Multiling O Keyboard is EXTREMELY customizable. You can write your own layout, add/remove/reassign keys, set suggestion bar shortcuts, etc, but it's FAR from user friendly to do these things. I was too lazy to completely strip down my bottom bar for the screenshot because of the effort it takes.
a.i.type Keyboard also has a paid version. I haven't used the free version in awhile so I've forgotten what the differences between them are. Not as customizable, but you can strip your bottom row down to what I show in the screenshots (or add custom keys). And much more user friendly.
Ultra Keyboard is more customizable than a.i.type, but less customizable than Multiling O. However, it is more user friendly than Multiling O.
All three allow you to use suggestions for commonly blocked entry fields.
Add this keyboard to your list. It is just 389kb.

With Multiling O Keyboard you can make your own keyboard layout entirely the way you want it.

Try Multiling O. It's especially designed for people who type in multiple languages. It has swipe but I don't use it much.
It's a keyboard, duh.
Multiling O can also do this.

Multiling O Keyboard can do this. Here's some examples of size adjustment. If that wasn't satisfactory, you could create an all new layout—move the enter key to the left side, leave the bottom right empty, etc. And, you can quickly switch between layouts, so if you did it via layout instead of keyboard size adjustment, you could switch between normal and altered layouts easily.
Here's an older comment that goes into more detail about the keyboard.

Multiling O Keyboard can do this. If you can type/paste a character, you can assign it to a key.
So it's kinda like Multiling Keyboard (in terms of features customisability), yet Multiling (aka OKB) has a Dev who's been active for years... and still is.

The bot grabbed the wrong link.
Multling O, though not perfect, is still the best Android keyboard available.
I use O keyboard beta for tap to type because it is small, free, has many customization options and languages support, has a copy/paste/function panel and is permission friendly. Link: [link]
