Litl keyboard kit

30.00 inc. VAT

Litl is an easy to build 40% keyboard using only through hole components.


  • Flexible layout options (split space, split enter, split backspace)
  • Separate microcontroller (like the Pro Micro) for greater flexibility, connectivity options and ease of construction
  • Up to 2 rotary encoders (for things like volume, next/previous track and brush size)
  • Optional OLED screen (for things like WPM counts and adorable cats)
  • Integrated sandwich style FR4 case (with the PCB floating between a switch plate and the base)

This kit contains most of the things that you will need to build your own mechanical keyboard and program it yourself. See the description below for what’s included and what’s not included. Find the build guide here and the firmware here.
