I would like to present this simple chrome extension which changes the threshold for which items appear on the critical-items list on the dashboard and on https://www.wanikani.com/critical-items. By default, the WaniKani sets this level at 75% (I think) and anything that has a higher recall rate will not be shown. With this extension, you will be able to set your own threshold level.
For example, if you set it at 80%, the dashboard and https://www.wanikani.com/critical-items will list all items that you have answered correctly less than 80% of the time.
If you do not wish to download from the chrome store, please tell me in the comments.
How to use
After installing, go to the extension’s options page and enter your API Key and set your threshold. You can also set how many times the extension may automatically perform an API request per hour. Click save. Reload any Wanikani dashboard and you should see the extension in action.
Okay… It might be a little buggy. From testing, I have found that sometimes, clicking the reset button in the options page may cause the number requests (any internal messages) to double and I do not know why yet. I’ll fix this as soon as possible. Basically, for now, if you wish to change the API, just change it in the options page.
Please tell me what you think of it. (If this idea has been done before, I’m sorry. But I had fun making this lol)
Does this do anything besides change how many items appear in the critical section?
Frankie3 said... Does this do anything besides change how many items appear in the critical section?Short answer: no.
Long answer: No. But it displays the extra (or subtracted) items in the same format as wk natively. That is, you can click on them and it will take you to the item page.
Is there anything else that you would like included in this extension?
