I’m considering making a web/desktop SRS application.
Why yet another SRS application?
Sadly, it’s looking like HouHou hasn’t had any updates in a while and is still using the old WaniKani API. Another problem I had with it is that it’s hard to adapt the vocabulary to work alongside textbooks as it doesn’t seem to support furigana.
It just asks for both reading and meaning.
Another reason is I don’t like the way Anki works. I might make it possible to import Anki decks, but there are so few of them that are good out there that I don’t really see a point to using them.
- WaniKani and Bunpro API compatibility
- Built-in per-chapter decks for common textbooks (vocabulary/kanji/grammar)
- Tiered SRS system like in Bunpro
- Lookup system similar to that of HouHou
I’m considering just going with Electron and SQLite for now.
If you have any suggestions for features you’d like to see that you wish other applications had, please comment.
