An Espanso package for typing Chinese pinyin tones

This package allows you to quickly and easily write characters marked with pinyin tones. For example, marked characters for the letter "e" can be created as follows:
Input
Output
:e1
ē
:e2
é
:e3
ě
:e4
è
:e5
e
Similarly, other tones can be created:
letter
1st tone
2nd tone
3rd tone
4th tone
a
ā
á
ǎ
à
e
ē
é
ě
è
i
ī
í
ǐ
ì
o
ō
ó
ǒ
ò
u
ū
ú
ǔ
ù
ü
ǖ
ǘ
ǚ
ǜ
The only exception is that the marked characters for "ü" are typed a bit differently: either with {:u:5 -> ü}, {:u:1 -> ǖ}, etc., or with {:v5 -> ü}, {:v1 -> ǖ}, etc.
