[Userscript] WK lesson cherry-picker

WK lesson cherry-picker

This userscript lets you choose which new words from your lessons pile you want to start learning.

I created this script because I use WK to learn new kanjis and to prepare for JLPT N4.
I do not intend to ever speak Japanese very well, so I feel like WK is making me learn too many words.
With this script, I can browse new lessons, check their JLPT level and other infos on jisho.org, and decide if I want to learn the word.

Requires WK open framework.
Download this script.

Features

  • You can click on the big “LEARN” button on the vocabulary page in order to move this specific word from the lesson to the review queue.
  • There is also a button that redirects you to the jisho.org page for this word, so that you can see the JLPT level and complete definition of the word.

Installation instructions

  1. Install the script.
  2. Generate an API token from this page in WK settings with assignments:start permission.
  3. Go to any vocabulary page that is in your lesson queue.
  4. Click the LEARN button.
  5. Input the token when asked for it. It is stored in WK Open Framework local db so you will have to do it only once.

There should be no bugs at least with Tampermonkey, on Brave browser (Chromium), on Win10. Please tell me if you find any.

This is a dangerous tool. :sweat_smile:

Indeed, but not having it may be even more dangerous! If I had not created it, I would probably have stopped using WK altogether. It felt very boring to me to have to learn new words in a fixed order without necessarily any desire to do so, and to be blocked in my progress if I don’t.

Right when I was looking for a tool like this !
(I’m considering to keep learning Kanji and quit learning Vocabulary on WK at lv 30 :slight_smile:)
Thanks a lot :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks for the script! I think it would be even more helpful if it allowed to cherry pick radicals and kanji :3

You’re welcome! I didn’t add this functionality because you have to learn all the radicals and kanjis anyway to unlock the next level.
I modified a few lines of code and made this version, which works with kanjis (not with vocabulary though, so keep both activated). I have no new kanjis to learn for now so I couldn’t test it, tell me if it doesn’t work.

Thank you so much for this script! Got a bit burried in vocab lessons and it really helps being able to pick the ones for kanji I struggle with first :slight_smile:
