Hi I've just got my MacBook Pro 2016 running 10.12.3 and I'm in a bit of a pickle...

I can't seem to find a way to remap my CapsLock to Delete.

I've tried using Seil, Ukelele and some other software, but non seem to do the job. Seil did't do anything after I've tried using it, and Ukelele seems a bit confusing, I just want to remap a single key, not the whole keyboard.

Could anybody recommend a software or method i could do this.
Thank you for your time :)

Ah found the solution. Currently the best option, by FAR is:

Karabiner-Elements

Hope somebody else finds this useful as well.

hidutil property --set '{"UserKeyMapping":[{"HIDKeyboardModifierMappingSrc":0x700000039,"HIDKeyboardModifierMappingDst":0x70000002A}]}'

For those looking for the same thing on High Sierra, its now native! Go to System Preferences -> keyboard -> keyboard tab: "Modifier keys ..." button.

From there you can choose where it maps to.

    How do you map it to backspace/delete there? – nohillside Mar 11 '18 at 8:17

Using hiutil to swap the delete and the caplock key:

hidutil property --set '{"UserKeyMapping":[{"HIDKeyboardModifierMappingSrc":0x70000002A,"HIDKeyboardModifierMappingDst":0x700000039},{"HIDKeyboardModifierMappingSrc":0x700000039,"HIDKeyboardModifierMappingDst":0x70000002A}]}'
