Swype keyboard for /e/

I just installed /e/ on my Moto G4 Athene and I had been using the included Android keyboard for years in Resurrection Remix but I was able to drag my finger across letters to make it predict words. Another keyboard calls this SWYPE. Why did /e/ take this feature out of the Android keyboard?

I’ve read threads here where others want this feature as well. One thread said the AnySoftKeyboard would swipe but dragging your finger to get predictive text doesn’t work on my phone. This is something I’ve come to depend on. Is there another keyboard that does this predictive swiping?

Flash the swipe libs zip from the Shadow53 website. This will make the aosp keyboard have swipe.

Did you activate the swipe feature in AnySoftKeyboard ?

Is this open source? That would be great!

Thanks for letting me know this as there are further tweaks after the setup which I didn’t realize as the app said I was good to go after setup. So once u just check the box for gesture typing it does swype. A screenshot is attached.

Maybe /e/ is working with an older version of the Android Keyboard? I’ve been using swype with it for years and thought it was open source since I’ve seen AOSP next to the name.

He takes the files out of what is in the gapps zip that enables the swipe libs. Have a look. Doesn’t install anything more google than these files. Not open source, I don’t think.

This looks promising-here’s the site:

Worked by Flashing (install) that file in TWRP. I have Moto G4 Athene and ARM CPU. I attached a picture and screenshot.
