It would be nice if there were a script that during lessons showed component information for radicals that are also kanji just like you see when the same item is introduced later as a kanji.

I would implement this if someone could find a high quality source of hosted audio files for the kun’yomi readings. The free tier of Google Cloud’s Wavenet product could probably be used to generate the files for free. Then the audio could either be bundled with the script or hosted somewhere. I don’t have time to do the generation / finding a host part of things though.

I’ve been looking around for a possible script that works with the context sentences for each vocab word. Specifically what I’m looking to make are Anki audio cards that utilize the context sentences from WaniKani. Ideally the cards would have audio with no clue on the front and then the Japanese and English context sentences on the back. If I could follow along each level of words while getting the listening practice as well it would be amazing! I’d be happy even if there was a script that could just batch pull the context sentences out of Wanikani.

I would love a script that lets me choose how many reviews to do at once (i.e. if I have 100 reviews available, but I only have time to do 50).

I usually only have time to do WaniKani reviews twice a day, in the morning and at night. I’m trying to make more time in my schedule, but in the meantime it would be nice if I could choose how many reviews to do according to how much time I have.

By default, because of the way WaniKani orders reviews and often spaces out reading and meaning (which I LOVE!) for the same character, if I stop a review session part way through WaniKani will not count as reviewed the ones I only answered half (either reading or meaning) for, and I often feel I have wasted my time answering those.

If there is an existing script that could be used to do this, please point me to it! The closest I saw was the SRS reorder scripts.

Are there any way to see how many items you have resurrected? I’ve lost count :durtle_durtverted_lvl1:

With the Item Inspector script you can do it.

  • Install Item Inspector.
  • In the Settings - Optional Filters settings install the Dates and Events filters. This will bring up the filter you need.
  • In the settings go to the Table tab and the Filters tab beneath it. Find the Had Resurrected filter and use it.

This will display your resurrected items. You will have a count of how many of them there are.

Excellent! Thank you, @prouleau. The amount was fewer than I thought, haha.

I don’t know such a script, but with a little effort you can mostly imitate what you need already.
Simply wrap up your session every once in a while (bottom left icon, see below), which will at most add 10 more reviews to your session, i think.
So if you wrap up when you’ve completed 40 reviews, you should get close to a 50 review session.

It would probably handy if you saw the number of half-answered reviews in the session in the top right (meaning or reading only), in addition to the fully answered reviews (0 in this case), that would be a nice script in any case.

I would love to see a script similar to the one available in the Tsurukame app in where after a mistake during review, you have the option to ask it later during that same review. I feel it’s like a second chance before getting punished, ideally having limit of maybe 1-2 ask laster per kanji that way you still jog your memory and if after 2 you really can’t remember, then you really downgrade.

Is there, or could there be, a script that changes the part of speech to Japanese in the lessons?
And/or is there a way to turn the entirety of WaniKani dashboard+ into Japanese 'cause I can’t find it if there is. Lol.

I think there was a script which reminds you of mnemonics when learning a vocab item whose reading you already know , instead of just saying you already know the reading without reminding you of the mnemonic for it. Does anyone remember what that script is?

There is indeed a script for that, which I assume still works:


what about a script that shows the traditional form of the kanji (or the entire vocab) when we hover the mouse on it ?

You mean show the Chinese traditional version of the kanji? I don’t know if there is a script, but maybe you could copy and paste it into a text editor document that you have set to use a Chinese traditional font?

Yeah. Those that are also called “kyujitai”. They were still in use in japan not so long ago, and apparently you still encounter them once in a while in Japan. It could be useful, or at least it could be interesting.

In my case, I am also learning Chinese, and it is convenient to be able to recognize characters in both forms. I am already copy-pasting them all the time on Wiktionnary. Would be less work to simply hover my cursor.

In fact, I’d also appreciate to have the chinese simplified form, but Wanikani is supposed to be for Japanese :cowboy_hat_face:

to do blindtest on the just-reviewed items

Hello, I would appreciate a script to train user’s listening capabilities on the just-completed review session.

The script which would add two buttons :arrow_forward: :next_track_button: to the review summary page:

  • :arrow_forward: plays the audio of the current item
  • :next_track_button: plays the audio of the next item

On :next_track_button: events, the script is randomly iterating through the items of the review summary. Randomly iterating means that all items are played at least once before an item is selected a second time, but the next item is selected randomly.

The CSS sheet is updated each time :next_track_button: is clicked, in order to highlight the newly selected item. It is used both as a visual feedback, and if the user open his/her eyes, to give the correct answer of which item was played. The user can open this item in a new tab to review the item details.

You can get close to what you want with a combination of Self Study Quiz and Date Filters. Here is the procedure.

  • First install Date and Events filters.
  • This will cause the Last Review After filter to appear in the filter list. Create a new preset with the new button and set the Last Review to -1h to select items reviewed in the last hour.


  • Select the Audio Quiz in the quiz type dropdown. This will quiz you on your last reviewed items with audio quizzes in the random order you want.


This script combination does not have all the bells and whistles you ask for but you will get the random audio quiz you want without waiting for someone to write a new script.

Hey, it’s not so much an extension request, but I was wondering if anyone had written a script to classify a given sentence by WK level? (Would just grab levels of each kanji in sentence / paragraph and return the largest number)

That reminds me of this thread:

which technically is the same thing, just with maaaany sentences :wink:

Maybe you can ask over there how the OP did the classification?
