So I made a WaniKani Chrome extension some time ago. If you have any problems with it or any suggestions, feel free to post them here.
- Shows a little number next to the extension icon indicating how many reviews are available
- Upon clicking this icon more information is presented, clicking the reviews link will take you directly to the review page here on WaniKani
- Optionally displays a notification with an optional sound effect (I recommend Review Time! if you want to be scared shitless every time it's time to review)
- Updates the review count as you do reviews (this does not always work perfectly though as more reviews can suddenly show up in the middle of a review session)
- Only updates when it needs to (thanks to the API), unless there are reviews available, then it falls back on the "update frequency" setting
- Do you have an irrational fear of numbers? Now you can hide them! Instead a plus sign is displayed when new reviews are available, and in the stats popup numbers are replaced with "some" (> 0) or "none" (0)
- 0.2.2 -> 0.2.3 (2013-01-22): made the extension work with the redesign! Sorry for the delay!
- 0.2.1 -> 0.2.2: (hopefully) fixed a bug where you would get spammed to death by notifications while doing reviews (that was not intentional, no matter how much I love the REVIEW TIME! sound)
- 0.2.0 -> 0.2.1: fixed a bug where the settings would reset. Added the option to hide numbers to avoid depression upon seeing you're up for over like 9000 reviews.
Don't like my extension and think I should go jump in a lake? Try t0asterb0t's extension instead, which confusingly enough is named the exact same thing as mine.
