## Building a Keymap
You should be able to build the keyboard keymap with a command in this format:
make <keyboard>:<layout>
### Conflicting layouts
When a keyboard supports multiple layout options,
LAYOUTS = ortho_4x4 ortho_4x12
And a layout exists for both options,
```
layouts/
+ community/
| + ortho_4x4/
| | + <layout>/
| | | + ...
| + ortho_4x12/
| | + <layout>/
| | | + ...
| + ...
```
The FORCE_LAYOUT argument can be used to specify which layout to build
make <keyboard>:<layout> FORCE_LAYOUT=ortho_4x4
make <keyboard>:<layout> FORCE_LAYOUT=ortho_4x12
