Hey everyone!

Just wanted to let you all know that we have just added 28 new community decks to Kitsun. Each language has 1 Vocabulary Deck and 1 Phrases Deck :

  • Portuguese
  • Spanish
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Dutch
  • Turkish
  • Russian
  • Arabic
  • Hindi
  • Filipino (Tagalog)
  • Vietnamese
  • Thai
  • Korean

We also have Chinese decks which will get shared as soon as we finish creating a specialized Chinese default template & layouts.

We will be adding additional information (sentences and audio) to these decks as we go forward, but we figured it would be good to already release them in their current state.

This was a combined effort of our team members and hopefully shows where we want to take Kitsun in the future. Speaking of the future, our team members are hard at work with creating decks for the Chinese (HSK), Korean (TOPIK) and Russian equivalents of the JLPT. After that we will be working on some very cool custom decks for Japanese :smiley:

Working on it! Got a little bit distracted with other (web) features and related projects (like the knowledge base) lately, but I’m back to work on the apps 80% of the time.

It’s getting to a point where the end is in sight for a first version so I hope to release it relatively soon :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

I’ve tried many SRS’. Anki. Bunpro. KameSame. KaniWani. Torii. However, they all didn’t stick with me for some reason. Until now, the only SRS which I do religiously is WaniKani.

Until now.

Kitsun. Holy cow. The ability to import entire news articles, blogs and online novels into the app, and then automatically having furigana for everything and being able to see a word’s definition at the touch of a button- this is revolutionary.

@neicul You sir, are doing the lord’s work.

Thank you!!

Really glad to hear it’s working well for you :smiley:

I still wish to introduce additional sources of texts/ (news) articles for the reader as soon as I get some time to work on it again. Hopefully soon! :smiley:

I’m really enjoying this new feature so far! :slight_smile: Great job with it!! I wonder if there’s a place where I can see all my known words, or maybe even how many there are now?

Really glad to hear that! There is no place for you to check and manage your “global” known words yet, but it’s definitely coming up along with the WK API integration. I’ll be working on it as soon as the first version of the mobile apps is done :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

I’ll likely share a general roadmap sometime soon so everyone can see what the team is working on for the next few months/year :smiley:

This weekend I took a break from working on the mobile apps in order to focus on fixing as many bugs for web as I could. While at it I also added a new button on the deck dashboard that will hopefully speed up the process of creating manual cards a little bit :smiley:


New Features:

  • Cards Management - Uppercase is now ignored when searching through your cards.

  • Deck Dashboard - Added a new “Add Card” button to the page. Clicking the button will open up the same popup as when you click on the “plus” button at the manage cards table, but now you won’t have to go to that page and load in all the cards first in order to manually create a new card. Note that it only shows up on your personal decks of course.

  • In order to preserve the screenspace, I’ve removed the “Feedback” button by default. It now only shows when there is actual feedback waiting to be checked.

  • Korean IME Input - Now accepts actual Korean characters as input as well, rather than only (English) characters that get converted automatically.


Bugfixes:

  • Cards Management - Sorting by Status now works correctly.

  • Session Results Page - Gained Experience is now always displayed accurately between multiple sessions.

  • Cards Management - Fixed an issue with double scrollbars on Firefox browsers.

  • Dictionary Page - Custom Card Popup layout has been fixed.

  • Dictionary Page - Generated Audio has been fixed (this one was hotfixed a while ago)

  • Import - No longer shows the category dropdown when doing manual imports

  • Import - Automatic CSV/TSV/TXT imports now have their id fields set correctly, preventing issues when changing template field names.

  • Community Centre - Styling of the deck “cards” was acting up on certain resolutions or when the sidemenu was expanded. This has been fixed.

  • Add/Edit Card Popup - Selecting a new layout no longer wipes the preview values.

  • Add/Edit Card Popup - Validation is no longer wrongly triggered right after saving a new card.

  • Add/Edit Card Popup - The card preview now correctly refreshes once a user uploads an image or audio.

  • Korean IME Input - Fixed an issue where some android phones (Samsung) were unable to use the auto-conversion.

  • Media Upload - Any newly uploaded media should now get the proper Content-Type header attached to it. Previously this would sometimes be “application/octet-stream” and prevent playback or display in certain browsers.

  • Popups - All popups now resize based on the content

  • Popups - Selectboxes/dropdowns will now correctly open the options dropdown list above or below, depending on whether there is enough space left below them inside* the popup.

  • Payments - Made a tweak to prevent a failed subscription payment from cancelling another payment (e.g. a payment for lifetime).

  • Push Notifications - Some push notification subscriptions were being removed incorrectly, preventing the user from saving their user settings (hotkeys etc). This has been fixed.


Pfew! Felt good to be working on the website again! Hoping to finish the first version of the apps soon so I can continue working on some new cool features :smiley:

It’s a helluva coincidence, because I’ve missed you guys too. I’ve been skulking in the background watching you all fly away on the wings of the Crabigator, leaving me behind like Armin deserves to be. :joy:
