I’m done with wanikani so I’ll no longer be supporting this script. If you like it, feel free to fork it.
This script adds a section to WaniKani.com that shows mnemonics from KanjiDamage.com for the given kanji.
The mnemonics that WaniKani provide are usually too lengthy for me, KanjiDamge on the other hand, has very concise (short and to the point) mnemonics, so I thought that seeing these mnemonics in WaniKani will greatly enhance my understanding of the kanji, and therefore speed up the learning time of all the kanji! So I posted it here to share my script with the world.
This script will add mnemonics to the Kanji section, Lesson section, and review section so that you’ll never miss out on a good mnemonic!
Here’s an example of what it looks like for the kanji 休:
As you can see, it automatically puts radicals in blue, meaning in pink, and reading in black just like the built in mnemonics. Also, this is a good demonstration as to why these are better mnemonics (IMO). It puts everything you need to know in one neat sentence! So you have the radicals, meaning, and reading in the same sentence. This is better because there’s less memorization.Also there are pictures sometimes that can really help, take 五 for instance:
Possible future updates include:
Since this couldn’t have been possible without KajiDamage, be sure to support them at KanjiDamage.com
I made this script when I was level 3, and have been crunching bugs since, so I don’t think there are any left, but if you do happen to come across any, please report it below and I’ll fix it ASAP.
