Ubuntu – Capslock (and other keys) indicator for Ubuntu 18.04

18.04capslockgnome-shellindicator

I know there are many solutions to this problem like using indicator-keylock or using lks-indicator.

I have tried them both. However since I am on Ubuntu 18.04, these are not working.

Can someone help me with something new or help me in writing a new indicator which I can use for myself at least?
