For Wordle, you have every key you need right on the board. The alphabet keys, Delete, and Enter are the only keys used in Wordle's on-screen keyboard.

Using the layers allows you to play the crossword puzzle, including navigation. For example, on layer three the A key is used for tab by holding the C mod, which is used to move to the next clue.

You can use arrow keys to move from space to space and switch from across to down. These are also on layer three, so a C mod and the R, D, F, G keys act as arrows.

The full layer mapping is shown in the keyboard.keymap in the code.py.

To use this alternate mapping, simply copy and paste the code here onto your Gherkin as code.py.
