Importing Oh-My-Rime

In the previous steps, you have learned how to install the Rime input method.

In fact, Rime can be configured as any input method, such as Minnan language input method, Wu language input method, Cantonese input method, and so on. You can also configure key mappings, such as inputting "ABC" but getting "CBA" or fuzzy pinyin.

However, all of this might be a bit complex for a new user. When exploring Rime's configuration, it is recommended to use pre-configured templates created by others, such as "Wusong Pinyin" or the "Oh-My-Rime" introduced in this article.

Moving the Configuration Files

Additionally, on macOS with Squirrel and Windows with Weasel, you can open the configuration directory using software. For example, on macOS: Open configuration directory using settings

After opening the configuration directory, move the Oh-My-Rime configuration files into it: Move Oh-My-Rime to the configuration directory
