What are scripts and how do you use them?

You install them using a browser extension like Greasemonkey for Firefox or Tampermonkey for Chrome. After you install the extension, you’ll be able to use scripts. They run little bits of Javascript code that change how websites work. I only use two:

- Hoovard’s additional resources script


This script adds links to several external resources on every vocab page. Using something like ALC or Weblio is crucial in learning the nuance of different words and how they’re used, so this links directly between WK vocab and example sentences and additional definitions. It also shows stroke order on kanji pages.

- Rfindley’s reviews timeline


This one shows how many reviews you have coming up and when, when you’ll have items up for burning, etc. Mine looks wonky because I have 600 reviews waiting after traveling in Japan all last week, but there are better pictures in the thread. It’s a pretty awesome bit of coding and I suspect rfindley might be a wizard.
