If your blog supports UTF-8 encoding then it is very easy to write and comment in Malayalam in your blog. This method should also be applicable for any of your sites that support UTF-8. Your website should support storage of UTF-8 characters in your application's database and also you should have a
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
in your pages where you want to read or write Malayalam

This is a modification on the tool Varamozhi Offline that allows you to save an html page on to your system and use that to type in Malayalam. The original code for Varamozhi Offline is from Alex benenson's cyrillic translitarator.

Add the following lines of code in the page where you have the textarea or input box where you want to type in Malayalam.

<script type="text/javascript">
textControlID = "yourTextControlName";
</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.zyxware.com/freeware/mozhi_script/mozhi_script.js">
</script>

Make sure that you replace yourTextControlName with the name of the text control where you want to type in Malayalam.

The original code has only been slightly modified to enable inclusion in any page. We are planning to add some more features like conversion of selected text, realtime display of text being typed etc. Do check back for more updates.

Linux has been growing in leaps and bounds in terms of internationalization. Setting up a Linux box for Reading and Writing in Malayalam has become pretty straightforward, thanks to passionate promoters like Peringodan, Cibu and Suresh and the countless others who have contributed through their efforts. The idea of webpages in Malayalam is rather common place to most online Keralites as a lot of them would have at some point of time been to any of the popular Malayalam newspaper sites. However the idea of keying in Malayalam would be unfamiliar territory to most of them as they are yet to try anything other than English keyboards. So can you write Malayalam using an English keyboard? One obvious solution is pretty straightforward - assign Malayalam characters to different keys and key-combinations. Though this sounds simple, think of the hassles of learning by-heart all the keys and their combinations and their corresponding Malayalam characters. There is however a more elegant solution for this, what if we could type Manglish (typing malayalam using english characters; eg - namaskaram) and see the corresponding malayalam characters. This is exactly what is achieved using the Mozhi Keyman transliteration application. It is however a pity that the site does not have instructions on how to use the application in Linux. Peringodan has however a detailed explanation on how to do this in Linux on his blog at http://linux-n-malayalam.blogspot.com/2006/11/610.htm. If you follow his instructions you should be able to set up Malayalam reading and writing on a Ubuntu box. However there are two small points that needs to be kept in mind. One is the shebang issue. Ubuntu 6.10 onwards follows a strict adherance to the POSIX shell interpreter specification and uses dash as the default for #! /bin/sh. So make sure that you change /bin/sh to /bin/bash in the scripts that are run as part of the installation [for that matter - keep this in mind when you see your old scripts failing left and right :)]. In this case the install.sh for the KMFL runtime installation. Another thing is regarding pango. Firefox by default disables pango and you have to disable this disabling by setting disable = false in the firefoxrc file inside /etc/firefox folder. More specifically you have to add a line MOZ_DISABLE_PANGO=0 to the firefoxrc file. During the KMFL installation if you use Distro="Ubuntu 7.04" instead of the Distro="Ubuntu 6.10" then you are all set to install the application on Ubuntu Feisty Fawn. However there seems to be some problem in typing text. Viewing Malayalam seems to be working fine but not writing in Malayalam. We are still trying to figure out how to get it to work on Feisty Fawn. We will be posting an update as soon as we figure out a way to do it. In the meanwhile you can use Ilamozhi to write in Malayalam.

However, to read those websites which doesn't support unicode fonts you have to install padma firefox extension . Those websites include all malayalam newspaper websites including, deepika, manorama, keralakaumudi etc. These websites only support truetype fonts. TrueTypes are glyphs matching a malayalam character but doesn't have a hex code assigned to it. They use ASCII character set but with a different glyph. Just to read malayalam, you only need to perform the first 3 steps in Peringodan's blog, in addition to the hacks thats been explained in this blog post. PS: Its so funny; a tutorial to explain how to install malayalam read and write support is written in malayalam. Thats what called a chicken and egg problem. Cherry (not verified) access_time 23 May 2019 - 09:56 I’d like to point out a couple of things: a) Malayalam support is not an Ubuntu thing or a Linux thing… I am running NetBSD -current on my laptop with x.org and I can type malayalam. Learning the key combinations is very easy and intuitive… it just requires attention and commitment. I learnt it in about a week and something. b) Mangleesh support for TeX has been around for a while. The TuX group in Trivandrum and specifically A.J.Alex have worked on very good quality latex support for malayalam. See: sarovar.org Just to set the record. Cheers, Cherry. vimal access_time 23 May 2019 - 09:56 Ready to use packages to support malayalam in Ubuntu 7.10 and Debian GNU/Linux Etch is available at http://malaylam.web4all.in .

We recently had to convert quite a lot of Ambili Font based ASCII Encoded pdf documents as part as a project we were working on. With proper guidance from Swathanthra Malayalam Computing, more precisely from Santhosh Thottingal we were able to use the Payyans Unicode Converter for Malayalam for this. As is our practice, we made sure that our efforts would also benefit the community by creating the font map for Ambili font and we are releasing it under GPL v3. You can download Ambili Font map for Payyans. We have also submitted this to the payyans team at SMC and this should very likely become part of Payyans. So you might be better off to get the latest version directly from the Payyans download location. If you have ASCII encoded Malayalam documents which you would like to convert to Unicode, we would be happy to assist you with the process. Get in touch with us using the Contact form for assistance regarding this. If you are interested in contributing towards the Swathantra Malayalam Computing Initiative, do get in touch with the SMC team through the SMC website or the SMC mailing list Malayalam Free Software Leave a reply Your email address will not be published.
