What do you want now? (Request extensions here)

It would be nice if there was something that showed how many kanji, vocabulary and radicals you have in each SRS level.
It also would be good if it showed all of the things you had in apprentice (and the other levels too maybe) so you know what to focus on.
Something like this would be super helpful :slight_smile:

This should cover the first part of your request.

Thank you !! :smiley:

I’ve done some looking and I haven’t found anything specifically like what I’m looking for. Is there a way to completely remove radicals? Or is there a userscript that would let me instantly burn a radical when I see it with the press of a button?

I understand that it is good to learn the radicals and that their there for a reason, but for me personally, they just get in the way. I would rather not learn the radicals and spend that time working on the Kanji instead. Especially since the radicals on WaniKani are essentially made up. If something does already exist would you be kind enough to point me towards it.


Has there ever been a request like this?

When I’m browsing my vocabulary, I hate not being able to see what state each individual item is in (like apprentice, guru, etc). I would love a userscript that adds a little light or dot or something on each entry that tells you what each vocab entry is at?

BTW, the search box is at the top right of the screen. (Press the search button first.)

I used the search box. That script doesn’t do what I want. I’m not talking about during reviews. I’m talking about when you’re looking at the vocabulary pages.

There is one on the dashboard, just for Current Level items / Apprentice items.

For vocabulary pages, it does say Apprentice and Guru by default, but without a number. I know no script to help this.

I’m already using Dashboard Progress Plus. Look, the reason this thread exists is to make requests. Not to link me a bunch of scripts that don’t fulfill my request.

My request is this:

On the VOCABULARY pages, I think it would be really nice to be able to tell what items are apprentice, guru, master, etc. If someone could make a script that adds some kind of indicator, that would be cool.

Edit: And I’m talking about the page that lists them, specifically, not the info page for each individual word.

Something on this page to see at a glance where each item is sitting.

Since normally we only know if it’s “active” or “burned”

There is this page, though. https://www.wanikani.com/lattice/vocabulary/status

Otherwise, see the STAT site. https://www.idigtech.com/wanikani/#items.wk.voc

I didn’t know about the Lattice. That’s neat. And I found the stats site already, which I absolutely love. Between the two of them I’ve basically got what I need. Thanks.

I would like a script that randomizes the lessons. I get burned out fast if I have all kanji.

@ilvrbts If you just want to randomize your lessons, go to the settings page and change your Lesson ordering setting.
If you want to be able to limit the number of lessons of each type you take (with a shuffle option), there’s the Lesson Filter script.
If you want more control over reordering your lessons (with a shuffle option), there’s the Reorder Ultimate script.

just refreshing the page usually helps

Not if you have the new setting set. Then you’d always get the same items.

Maybe a way to learn reading > meaning (without kanjis)
Kanjis in vocabs helps understand the words but what if you speak with someone! :stuck_out_tongue:
Dunno if it already exists

I don’t how difficult this would be to implement, but for my learning I really like to differenciate between similar items by looking at them side by side. When is comes to the SRS and the way that WaniKani unveils things, I often unlock similar looking items far apart from each other. Then, given how often I do my reviews these items may never be in the same review pile. Meaning I won’t usually see these items near each other, and without being able to compare and contrast them I may not really pick up of the subtle differences. This can lead to confusion of these items, and continuation of leeches. Being able to see them side by side helps to solidify them in my mind, so I’m less likely to confuse them with another similar item when they come up. I would really like a place where I can bring up similar items and look at them next to each other in a clean, large and easy to read format kind in like a compare/contrast/spot-the-differece diagram or table. [If that makes any sense haha… I’ll be happy to answer any questions people may have with my request too.] I would like them to have the symbol for the item large on top with a succinct version of the info below it with the whole thing in a box color coded to the type of item it is (radical, kanji, or vocab). To compare, another item in the same formant would pop up horizontally adjacent to it. Ideally, I would like to be able to manually add and take away items to compare on that format, as well as load my API key into the system to autogenetate a diagram of similar items I’ve unlocked.

Another semi-similar request I have would be to have a drag and drop version of WaniKani items. When I was learning my kana I really benefited from the drag and drop programs of each for the same reasons. I was able to see all the kana in one place and compare and contrast the difference with them all spread out near each other instead of reviewing them one by one alone and never really seeing these differences. I feel like this tool was instrumental in giving me a very good recognition of the kana and I’m hoping a similar thing can be done with wanikani on a much larger scale.


you’re not being very clear in what you want. What I understand is you want to get rid of the breakdown and examples tabs when learning vocabulary?

I recommend using this script. WK actually already has a visually similar kanji feature (on each item’s info page), but this is far superior (I don’t even know why the official one exists since it doesn’t really do what it’s supposed to).
