This is an alternative firmware for the Anne Pro 2 Keyboard.
This is for the Anne Pro 2 keyboard, for the Anne Pro 1, please refer to the anne-key project.
From my short and limited experience with the original firmware provided by ObinsLab, I find it to be extremely buggy. One of the most significant problem being compatibility in BIOS. Aside from buggy, I would also like to switch the “Magic FN” from caps lock to other keys.
This project is still under heavy development and in its early stages. I would recommend to always have a backup keyboard if you are going to participate in the project. (i.e. if something arises you still have a second way to input keystrokes for long enough that you can either restore to the Obins firmware or find a solution).

QMK is a powerful open source keyboard firmware used by many open source keyboards that are on the market today. It is most famous for its appearance in the Plank and ErgoDox EZ keyboards.
Currently, we have a fully functional port of the QMK firmware for both the c15 and c18 revision. (If you are unsure which one you have, read below.) This includes key matrix function, which is the “most important” part of a keyboard, I would say.
Shine is the custom firmware designed to run on the LED micro-controller of the keyboard to control lighting effects. In Obins’ words, this is the Light processor.
Currently this project is in its infancy, only very basic features has been tested. It can act as a decent indicator light (e.g. Caps Lock) using the RGB LEDs. But there is a lot of potential out there, as the firmware is only about 5KB in size right now, and the microcontroller can hold 64/128 KB of code for the c15/c18 revision respectively.
Currently the bluetooth support is based on the original Obins BLE processor firmware, which means you will not need to reflash the BLE chip if you have the latest stock firmware on it. Contact me in the discord if you need a copy of the stock BLE firmware to flash.
