[Android] Smouldering Durtles (v1.1.1) - native app with offline lessons and reviews, plus themes and script-like features!

Where do you find this setting? It seems I can’t find it

You can find it here:
Settings, other advanced settings, Special button 1 behavior


I suck at typing so anki mode is the way to go for me.

Also it saves time since I have almost 200 daily reviews. That’s the only thing I set on.

The undo button is a necessity on the phone. Just keep yourself accountable and don’t let yourself abuse it.


I’m having the issue where background tasks are not synced… Will I lose those if I flush ? Or will they be recreated ?

You will lose them.

I highly recommend using the automatic sync on open feature, doing it manually only is silly.

I never do that manually, It’s always automatically, but sometimes somehow it gets stuck like that.

I tried enabling the sync over mobile data and restarting the app, but it didn’t work. In the end I had to restart the phone itself.

I also have a bug sometimes when I finish a review session: the app just “forgets” the session. The items remain “to-review”, and nothing is sent to the server. Redoing the session doesn’t change anything. Again, only restarting the phone solved the issue. :thinking:

Opened a pull request with a fix for new stuff added to earlier levels making the home page all cluttered when you have the level progress enabled

Hmm, I’ll take a look at - I honestly can’t remember if Flaming Durtles had the same issue, or if it’s just more pronounced now with the additional vocab added.

Either way, I should think it possible to add a selectable maximum row length there, just may have to bear with me in terms of tinkering time :sweat_smile:

Cheers buddy - I’ve got both of them on my Android test device, but I’ve A) left that at home and I’m away for a week and B) I’m not high enough level to notice after my last reset, haha

I think this functionality is essentially a port of an old version of this script:

The newer version has settings to deal with this, so you could look into adapting some of those. (Because smouldering durtles does not have enough settings yet of course)

I added it as an option to include only X number of levels below your current level since that seemed to be the obvious fix for it.
I think it wasn’t really much of an issue before but they’re reordering stuff a decent amount these days haha.

TBH I don’t want to lose that. So don’t remove it arbitrarly, please.
Kana vocab doesn’t appear too, I would like to change that.

I’m sorry, I totally missed that you’d submitted a PR, not an issue :man_facepalming:t2:

I’ve had my six year old 24/7 for the past week because of the summer holidays and so my brain is mush - I’ll get some time early next week to check it over and merge it. Thanks for taking the time to make the addition :slight_smile:

No intention to limit it, if people like it - taking a quick look at the work @Cammymoop has done, it’ll be a toggle preference to change the behaviour at all, and even then it’ll allow for selecting from 0 to 60 previous levels to show :+1:t3:

Kana vocabulary is treated as vocabulary for the purposes of displaying progress bars - to do otherwise would create three bars per level, which would be too much, in my opinion. I did attempt to reclassify those items back as kana-vocab once the browse page opens after tapping on a bar, but I didn’t have much luck and so it’s on the long term list. They are displayed though, just within the vocab list.

This is amazing! I don’t know how I haven’t seen it until now :astonished:

Thanks. :slight_smile:

It doesn’t, but I wasn’t clear.
In my lessons I currently have うん, a level 4 kana only vocabulary.
It doesn’t appears in the progress bars. I can see it in the browse screen though.
Captures to follow.

うん as initiate status

No items for level 4 progress bar

Browse display it correctly though.

Ah, thank you for clarifying.

I suspect this is because the logic about whether to display the vocab bar for a level is tied to whether there are any incomplete vocab items for that level. At this stage, it’s not looking at kana vocab a vocab yet.

That should be easy enough to remedy, I think.
