Radical stroke order?


#1

Hey.
I am using a script that shows the stroke order for kanji when doing lessons/reviews, but I was wondering, is it possible to make one for radicals ?
Since all the kanji we learn here use radicals, I thought it would be much faster to learn to write them by learning to write the radicals first. And to properly learn that, I need the stroke order :frowning:
Since many of the radicals were made up, I was wondering, is it possible to make such a script ?

Well some of the radicals here can have different stroke order depending on what kanji they show up in so I don’t know if that’s the best idea.

most radicals are Kanji after all, even though, they have little alterations, just like mrgameraidz said. But if you can identifty the radicals correctly, you can reduce the stroke order diagrams to learn the radicals’ stroke orders anyway, right?

Some radicals aren’t even characters per se, and have to be build with CSV or PNG files, and WK may use different radicals than other sources (that provide the order diagrams).

I guess you could technically just practice them if you’re practicing the kanji and stop at the radical? 

Edit: I, however, don’t think you need to go about it this way. It seems difficult at first, but once you get in the groove of learning to write kanji, it basically becomes muscle memory. Sometimes when I write kanji, I have no idea what i’m doing but I write it perfectly anyway.

Thank you guys for your input.
I guess I will go about it the good, old way.
