Feature request: better formatted lists

I didn’t see any other topics about this, but it’s kind of wild to me that there doesn’t seem to be an easy way to just pull up a list and see how many kanji I’ve learned, and which ones. Dividing them into individual units is fine when I’m trying to see how much I’ve got left in a level, but literally only for that one particular situation (which is almost never.) I’m on level 13 now, and if I want to know how many kanji I’ve learned, I have to go thru each level, and count them all. This seems painfully easy to implement, and I don’t really understand how this isn’t a thing. It’s also a massive headache if I ever want to look for a specific kanji that I’ve learned, because I can’t just search a list, I have to look thru every single section individually and typically end up giving up before I find the one I’m looking for.

If I’m missing something please correct me, but I genuinely don’t understand how this isn’t a standard front-page feature of this platform. I think it would be way more useful than the standard “Apprentice, Guru, Master, Enlightened, Burned” section that I never look at.


Maybe you should take a look at the Item Inspector script. Its concept of tables looks very much like the list you are interested into. There is a All Learned Items table by default and you can configure your own tables (lists) to suit your special needs.

That’s definitely helpful, but it’s kind of ridiculous that I’d need a secondary script for such a basic feature. If I really wanted to, I could just write a python script myself, but I’m already paying money for WK. Seems absurd that I’d have to look elsewhere just to see what characters I’ve learned.


There is also wkstats which has a couple useful tables by default if you don’t feel like coding it yourself.


I google the kanji + wanikani or meaning + wanikani

I understand this frustration, but that’s the nature of the beast with Wanikani when it comes down to it. A lot of users feel this site isn’t all that great to use without a ton of userscripts to add very basic features that have been in demand for years.

Like proper kanji conversion and lookup for the context sentences, or a Lightning Mode to immediately go to the next Review if you get it right so save an extra button press. (Sounds minor but when you’re doing 100+ reviews a day this is huge)


This. I think the table in wkstats is exactly what you’re looking for. You don’t need to install any scripts either, it’s a web page.

This will do. Thanks :smiling_face:
