Yay!

I just noticed that whenever I click on the magnifying glass in the Community Centre without typing anything in the search box, it just takes me to the overview page :thinking: Is that supposed to happen?

Hi!

I have a few questions :

  • Is it possible to have a shortcut to replay the sound several times during the quiz in lessons? (my autoplay is already enable)
  • When the lessons are finished : “Quiz!” or “More time” pop up, if I choose the latter, would it be possible to use the arrows in both ways (if right arrow, I would like to stay in the review mode)? And if implemented, a button to “Quiz!” would be needed I think

Less important :

  • What does mean PoS?
  • Is it possible to have a little animation when the page loads? My wifi is sometimes weak and when I do lessons in WK for example, the crabigator appears

Maybe my requests would render kitsun.io to be too much like WK? Thank you for the website anyway! :smiley:

Hi!

Absolutely! You can adjust the shortcuts at the settings page (accessed from the sidemenu). If I recall correctly the default shortcut for playing audio is R. It might be that you have to click away from the answer box (in order not to type “R” into the answer box). You can also bind it to F-Keys to be able to replay the audio without losing focus of the answer box :slight_smile:

So you mean using the arrow buttons instead of the visual buttons while the popup is being shown?

In this case it means: Part of Speech

It’s supposed to show a small animation while loading the cards. I just double checked and it seems to have stopped working for lessons, but still works for reviews. I’ll try to fix it with the launch update this weekend. Thanks for reporting! :smiley:

I have to say the app is really awesome. The UI is really great, way better than I imagined. However, I don’t like the UI/layout when we do reviews/lessons. It feels like from another website—basically not the same quality. Am I the only who has that problem? Maybe it depends on the layout, I tried the 10k vocab one.

Nonetheless, amazing work and I hope the launch will go well!

Thanks for the compliments!

The UI/Layout for the cards is determined by the deck you are using. Kitsun has a few default layouts that can be used to generate cards with, but in your case you are using a community deck with personalized layouts that were made and shared by another user. Kitsun gives complete freedom to the user to personalize their (own) cards if they want to :slight_smile:

When you click on a deck in the community centre you are able to see a preview of what the cards look like. Perhaps another deck is more to your liking? :smiley:

Can you currently replace the layout of a community deck for personal use? Assuming you force them to use the same template, it should be doable, right?

Hmm, your progress on a card is also kinda linked to the layout ids (as those create the sibling cards). But in theory it should be possible yeah

This is exactly what I was wondering about. Can we change the layout of your “community deck” or extract the cards somehow, create a new deck with our own layout and import those cards in it?

Or is it just better to import an Anki deck in a Kitsun deck?

Thanks for the quick answer!

Having “skins” (so to say) for the cards in a community deck might be possible, but currently isn’t a feature. I like the idea but there’s also some stuff that could go wrong (e.g. what if the author updates the template/layouts and it doesnt match with your personal one anymore?). I’d have to think well about how to implement this in a way that’d be both easy to understand and easy to use.

I have been toying with the idea of introducing an easy way to customize the colors of the default kitsun layouts, but not anything that completely changes the HTML structure. I’ve personally made those layouts, so it wouldn’t be too hard to change them on the fly :slight_smile:

As a sidenote (for @seanblue) : It would be really easy to change any layout/card with a userscript I think. I have exposed certain values and functions to the public as well to give access to further scripting if that ever becomes a thing for Kitsun :stuck_out_tongue:

Hello!

I mean, just after I learn my lessons there is the mini quiz. During the review with the mini quiz, the part when I have to listen, I would like to allocate another shortcut (ctrl+r for example). I cannot use a shortcut currently because it types when used.

No I mean just after I learn the lessons and before I do the quiz, I want to review again the lessons : in WK I can press both left and right arrow but in your website it’s only one way. Left towards the beginning and right towards the quiz.

Just found another visual bug smallscaredfox

Notice how I select 3 cards to delete, I delete, and 1 card stays there after. The card is gone once I refresh the page (because the cards load again).

also notice me getting trolled by the sidebar

Free until December 1st? Well, that’s just bad timing on my part that’s just 2 hours away! It looks like an interesting tool but I’m not sure it has enough to take me away from memrise.

You can do so by setting the hotkey to one of the F1-12 keys. Those don’t interfere with the input.

I’ve confirmed (with some help) that this is a bug that’s causing the issue. You are supposed to be able to flip back and forth through cards using the arrow keys. I’ll fix it as soon as possible :slight_smile:

Thanks for elaborating!

@jprspereira So I was wondering why this was happening, as I remember fixing it (it’s the same visual bug as the manual lessons one). But then I remembered I delayed the fix (as read above) because I was in the middle of implementing the launch features. So the fix for this should be live either tonight or tomorrow morning :smiley:

@antonytycoon New users have a free 14 day trial that you can use to check out the platform :slight_smile:
