[Jisho userscript] Jisho Only Essential Info

Do you like jisho.org? I do, but sometimes I think it shows way too much information in search results and I have to scroll through them back and forth to find the information I need.
That’s why I created a simple script that hides some information from search results page:

  • Example sentences
  • Wikipedia entries
  • Tags (common word, jlpt, wk level)
  • Links (audio, collocations, sentence search etc.)
  • Notes
  • Long lists of other forms
  • Also shortened a couple of frequently encountered annotations:
    • Usually written using kana alone -> Usually kana
    • Yojijukugo (four character compound) -> Yojijukugo

I used a brute-force method to hide the information, so sometimes layout is a bit messed up, but not much. Also Wikipedia only entries look weird, but I personally not often interested in them anyway.

I like it. It really cleans rubbish out from the pages!

Nice! I personally like the example sentences and especially the tags (i find ‘common word’ quite significant). Maybe i’ll use it if it’s configurable, not hiding those. The shortened annotations are nice!

Good point, I added a screenshot. Can’t think of a good example from the top of my head, but I think it shows the general idea.

@Saimin I’ll make comments in the code, so if you want you can just comment out the parts you don’t need (type “//” at the start of each line of code you don’t need). That’s all I can do in terms of configuration :sweat_smile:

good enough for me, thanks :slight_smile:

Thank you!

Ok, I added comments and separated tags, so you can pick and choose which ones you need.

Updated the script, so now it also hides lists of other forms if they are longer than two entries with a button to show them.
