Has anyone developed a VBA script for excel that interacts with the review page so I can appear to be working on a spreadsheet at work while discreetly doing my reviews? Is it even possible? I am pretty good at VBA and have managed to get my spreadsheet to open the review session in explorer, pick out the current question from the HTML and pop it into my spreadsheet, and then get the spreadsheet to insert my answer into the answer box on the webpage. The only problem is I can’t get the macro to submit the answer without refreshing the entire page. I am clueless when it comes to web development so I have no idea how to interact with the webpage and even getting this far has been extremely difficult.

Does anyone know if this is possible?

Please bear in mind I wouldn’t be able to install any scripts on my work PC, and I’m using internet explorer as my browser (and running the code from VBA)

Thank you very much for this list. I’ve just discovered now, but I’m amazed by everything in there :star_struck:

To avoid any misuse, and since I can’t imagine how to misuse this script. What shouldn’t be done? Thx in advance!

During lessons, you could always sort radicals and kanji first and never do vocab. [You can level without touching the vocab.] The vocab is good to see different readings in action and how the kanji are used, so it’s not WK spirit to let vocab lessons pile up.

During reviews you could always sort meaning and reading of an item directly together, the idea of WK is to shuffle everything so that you don’t learn a certain pattern but don’t remember anything outside WK, like you always need to remember the meaning first to remember the reading.

Just check first why you want to reorder something, if the answer is to “to make it easier” then consider than maybe WK does it the hard way for a reason :slight_smile:

The most important thing is to not skip vocab lessons. That’s the most common abuse of the script that I’ve heard of. Doing vocab lessons is very important because they reinforce the kanji readings you’ve learned and teach you additional readings.

Thanks for the answer. Okay, so I am going to be fine since the “old” vocabs are the first thing I do in my review. Afterwards I do the radicals and at least the kanji (Not putting any attention to the level or reading/meaning order). :smiley: I am here to get my Japanese on a level I am able to use it. So I thought the Order I choose would benefit me the most ^-^

Also thanks to @seanblue :slight_smile:

Is there a userscript that will make me type in the exact reading otherwise it will mark as incorrect.

上げる -> “To raise” (If you type “to rise” it is accepted)
下さい - > “Please give me” (If you type “Please help me” it is accepted)

I want it mark it incorrect. I tried searching but didn’t find anything.

You can use “Close But No Cigar”. It won’t mark you wrong, but it will ask you to try again. And at that point you can mess up on purpose if you want.

Or you can use “Double Check” which let’s you mark yourself right or wrong. It has “Close But No Cigar” included as a setting too.

Awesome, thanks @seanblue
I saw these but I wasn’t sure if there was a better one or not. I’ll try these out! :slight_smile:

Adding to what seanblue said, Double Check has a setting for how to handle typos, with three settings:

“Answers containing typos:”

  • Ignore
  • Warn/shake
  • Mark wrong

Any chance we could get added to this list? I am building it based on KaniWani not really working well for me on reverse-cards, and as far as I can tell the review module performs better and more reliably than either KaniWani or even WaniKani itself.

Here’s the feedback thread:

It’s a wiki post, so you can add it yourself. The edit button is on the top-right of the top post.

Looks like Stylish just got removed from the Chrome and Firefox extension stores:

Stylus is a good (spyware free) alternative

Ah, good to know thanks. I’ve just been through the Tampermonkey security settings and locked things down a bit :grimacing: Think I’ll disable auto script updates too.

sigh I guess it’s finally time to switch

edit: well that was painless

Does anyone know of a script that you can input a vocab word and output the constituent radicals and kanji with mnemonics? Looking for something to let me memorize things above my current level when reading.

Pretty sure there is no script like that.

It would be really tough to do that until/unless WaniKani adds the mnemonics to the new API. With that said, writing a script to just give the constituent parts would be easy, but that probably doesn’t help you that much since you can do that with just a few clicks now.
