There is a drag/drop tool for this here:http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php?siteid=nrsi&itemid=ukelele

i dont like third party applicationsYou could delete the Ukelele tool after you use it, if that makes you feel better.The keyboard itself is not an app, just a text file. Having it on your machine is no different than having a note that you wrote with Mail. You could even write the keyboard with TextEdit if you want, but it is more tedious.
