jkeyboard is a jQuery plugin to create an on screen visual keyboard that supports custom layouts for multiple languages.

How to use it:

1. Include the jkeyboard.css in the head section of the document, and the jkeyboard.js at after loading jQuery library.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/jkeyboard.css">

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.1.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/jkeyboard.js"></script>

2. Create a keyboard container next to your input field.

<input type="text" id="demo">
<div id="keyboard"></div>
