Edit: Name of user script is pending as I’m going to have the script allow accented and non-unicode characters for synonyms. Feel like using Russian or emojis for synonyms? Go for it.
Goal: Allow WK to accept synonyms containing kana in reviews.
I’ve been wanting to use synonyms for reviews with kana for quite a while now especially since I’ve switched to using Japanese-only learning materials/AJATT 99% of the time outside of WK and wanted to bring some AJATT style learning to WK reviews, so I started working on 躾 Shitsuke《Discipline》 tonight and got a super alpha version that I’ve been testing for myself.
It’s not quite ready, but I did finish my last review item successfully. It gets around the issue of not being allowed kana by finding a match with your synonym within the Wanikani Open Framework of the current item and shows you what you put. In the background, since the synonym matched one you created (that may contain kana…it just matches any synonym with the text entered for now, kana or not), the actual submit field is populated with an official meaning answer and the field submitted, so it will be sent as correct. I’ve got some kinks to work out, but wanted to show what that looked like so far and that it did work for me.
I’ll post a link to the script when I’m ready to have people willing to be Guinea Pigs for a beta version, maybe sometime this weekend.
