Wanikanify - A Google Chrome Extension

Was this a joke post or...????

This is an innovative idea! Keep up the good work!

Just came across this extension. Good work! should really help to solidify the meanings of Kanji and vocab so long as you read them out of context. I’ve found it’s also helped to remind me of a few synonyms I’d forgotten about :slight_smile:

I’m in the middle of adding more stuff to it right now. The current person developing it hasn’t touched it in a while. An update is coming with a bunch of new features. Hopefully this weekend I’ll be done with the features. But I’ve been working on the new stuff for about 3-4 months off and on. The big feature is the ability to import vocab words and readings from google spreadsheets and by mousing over an item (or clicking maybe?) it will play audio so you know how to pronounce it. Also the settings will be synced using Chrome sync. A few other small additions… But most of the major features are finished.

Sounds great!

This is an awesome extension! Thanks so much! I’m glad I found it. :slight_smile:

Saying my thanks over here. Now I “just” have to level up more so I get more things replaced!

how do i get the Public API key?

Just to comment, if the web page is dynamic and loads content after the page has already finished loading. The wanikanify will not change that text. Maybe have it so that every 10 seconds, it checks if anything has changed.

 Can't wait for this update, The feature about importing my own vodab words is very exciting!

The newest update is live on the Chrome store.
Google Spreadsheets
Audio
etc.

It’s really nice, thanks!

Replying mostly to save this thread for myself, I’m definitely downloading this when I get out of work :slight_smile:

Very Impressive, I’m loving it! ありがとうございます!

Accidental Double Post, my apologies

Accidentally emailing people with wanikanify turned on and then their email has random kanji scattered throughout… whoops

Yea, someone else said they had that problem.
Unfortunately, I have no clue how to solve that.
You could blacklist gmail or whatever you use I guess…

@aragonsr
if/when you make a new version, can you let me know by leaving a message on this thread? i’d really appreciate it, thanks! :smiley:

This is great!! I love how it reads the word out (in Japanese) if you scroll over it and tells you what the original english word was.
Little confused as to why  又 keeps replacing the word ‘and’ though…
