GreasyFork link: Wanikani Levels Overview Plus

This userscript improves the level overview popup by adding…

  • The visual SRS breakdown of all items within that level.
  • A green checkbox to levels that are 100% burned.
  • A gray padlock to levels that are 100% locked.
  • A tooltip when hovering over a level that shows exact SRS breakdown and the next review info.
  • A settings popup to configure the script (currently only to hide/show the next review info).
  • A “+” to the “Levels” nav bar text to signify that the script is active and has finished setting up.

NOTE: This userscript requires you to install the Wanikani open framework. You can find information on how to install that here.

This is particularly useful for people working on burning all of the items within levels, as well as it being just interesting to see your progress as you move up the levels.

For reference, here’s what the original looks like

If you experience any issues with this, please let me know in this thread. I’d also appreciate any feedback on how to improve this script visually or functionally.

I’ve just added your userscript to The New And Improved List Of API and Third Party Apps > Dashboard.


I’m a bit confused, you say there’s a green check for items that are burned? I have level 1 and 2 checked off, indicating that they’re burned, but in actuality I have 0 burns, so I’m not sure why those levels are checked off. Here is a screenshot. Am I misunderstanding something?


AHH! I didn’t have any burned levels either so I added some code to force the first 2 levels to show up as burned for testing and the picture, and I forgot to take them out before publishing :man_facepalming:

I just updated it so it should be good now. So sorry about that!


It’s all good now, thanks!


Whoa neat! I’ll download this when I’m behind my pc!


Ohhh, I like this ^^ Thank you for creating it :v:




Cool cool cool


This is really cool, thanks :blush:


Thanks everyone!

I’m considering adding a little tooltip when you hover over a level that gives you the exact numbers now.


Really cool script. Here’s a view of how permanent vacation mode looks:


That would be great! Even if it’s already a great script :slight_smile:

it’s strictly more information on the same space that WK uses, love it.

Sounds like a great idea! That would make this amazing script even more amazing :slight_smile:

Alrighty I just pushed up the tooltip. I could also pull the level progressions data, and show data like when the level was unlocked, completed, duration, etc… but I’m not sure it’s worth pulling a whole other set of data for…


Is it possible to disable the tooltip? Or at the very least the ‘next review’ part?

I haven’t messed with adding userscript settings before, but I can certainly look into it.

Just out of curiosity… is the tooltip/next review data you are intentionally trying not to see, or do you just not like the look of it?

I don’t want to see the next review data the most, but having the tooltip also blocks from seeing other neighbouring levels. I do like the data (except for the spoiler bit), but it feels a little awkward to me. Maybe a regular-looking tooltip? I don’t know if I’m expressing myself well…

Hmm I’m not sure what I can do to make it not block other levels other than to just not hover over a level block when you want to see all levels. I could maybe shrink the font sizes a little so that it is a little smaller?

I intentionally made the tooltip’s UI similar to the ultimate timeline’s tooltip so that people have a more consistent UI between scripts, which suffers the same problem of it blocking data when it’s visible.

I can definitely understand the need for the ability to hide the spoiler.
