Update 4/12 - SRS and general update
- Added 5 JLPT vocabulary lists + kanji (based on said lists)
- New shortcut ‘3’ will disable the current question type for that particular vocab word from now on
- Equivalent to adding a “;” as the first character in the question box (which disables that Q type)
- This is if, like, readings are super easy for certain words and you don’t want to waste time
Hotkeys shown when rolling over row
Warning when you enter the same wrong answer that you inputted last time you got it wrong (this is improved from the first implementation I did way back when)
Toggleable parts of speech (click the PoS tags to open modal)
- Progress update appears every 5 questions instead of at a random % chance
- Fixed the parts of speech being off center
Vocabulary Tables (beta version)
- Bug fixes
- Added a help section
- Built a system to handle private books (so I can handle custom book orders or something, idk the infrastructure is there now though).
Yeah, kind of a silent couple of weeks. I haven’t actually changed that much but I’ve been researching a lot of features I want to implement as well as stuff about Japanese in general.
Ideas I’ve been thinking of:
- Custom ordering of books (to deal with stuff with little mainstream appeal)
- Some kind of system to suggest why you made definition/reading mistakes (something kind of like niai but for suggesting words you might have confused stuff for)
- Systems to help users figure out what kanji readings are worth learning and what aren’t (and maybe auto ordering readings based on that)
I’m interested in writing a few articles about reading in Japanese, things that would be useful for intermediate to upper-intermediate students who haven’t grasped some of the nuances of the language. Stuff like stative vs. non-stative verbs and how that affects how to interpret usages of the plain/ます form of verbs. How the copula works. How to juggle particles when used in complex sentences (with relatives clauses, etc.).
Anyway, that kind of stuff.
