Wanikanify Update Needs Testers


#1

I need a handful of volunteers to test the new version of wanikanify.
This means reporting bugs to me, on this thread I guess.
The hassle of manually installing it on your machine.
Actually testing it and trying to break it or other such issues.

You can find it here: https://github.com/aragonsr/wanikanify.git 

Once it’s ready I’ll see if the original author will put it up on chrome store as an updated version.

Here are the list of features to test:
Importing Google Spreadsheet Data
    - User can now import large amounts of vocab words using google spreadsheets.
    - This allows users to share their vocab lists.
    - Importing from Google Spreadsheets overrides the WaniKani vocab.
    - Shows the total number of entries that have been imported. Which could be multiple synonyms.
Custom Vocab Override
    - User can now override WaniKani vocab entries AND “Google spreadsheets import” using the custom vocab box.
    - Or if they just want to add a few extra vocab words easily, they can also use it for that too.
    - This is meant as a quick and dirty way to add your own custom vocab easily without setting up a google spreadsheet.
    - For example, “times” gets translated as “〜回” from WaniKani, which is silly. So you can use this to override it to just “回” if you want.
    - This is not meant for large amounts of vocab since it is also synced using Google Sync.
Google Chrome Sync
    - Settings for wanikanify now are persistence across computers if user has Chrome’s sync functionality enabled.
    - Note the vocab data is not synced because it’s too much data. But the settings are synced, so you’ll just have to click the “import” buttons again for Google Spreadsheets.
Audio
    - Mousing over (or clicking) a word will play the audio for that word from HTML5’s built-in speech synthesis.
    - This works very well as a learning tool in combination with rikaikun.
    - It’s possible the audio played could not be correct if the readings are missing from the spreadsheets, but it will try to play it anyways.
    - Put in option to disable the audio functionality and change whether it’s on click or on hover.
    - Custom vocab can use readings for audio.

I tested with about 4000 vocab words and it seemed to perform okay.

Okay, well, formatting won’t work correctly… So… I’m not reformatting that.
