What do you want now? (Request extensions here)

There are plans to integrate similar kanji into lessons and reviews. We are just lumping the changes into the lessons and reviews redesign (we have speccing these out scheduled for Q1 and Q2 of 2018).

The past year has been mainly dominated by restructuring and optimizing server-side. We are excited to finally move onto front-end projects very soon :slight_smile:


Ah, okay, that sounds great! I appreciate the response, Viet. :v:

I have a script that lets you search for similar kanji based on elements. Though the result varies by kanji, it’s helpful if you focus a lot on radicals and tend to subconsciously deconstruct kanji.

Put more vocabularies in Found in Vocabulary section, Kanji info pages; based on Kanji definition I found in Kanjipedia.

New vocabs aren’t in SRS, I don’t mind; but they may aid in interpreting Kanji’s meaning.

I would love to be able to make my own “Wanikani flash card set” so I can memorize other kanji/ vocabulary that I am learning from other sources. I notice I tend to learn much faster using these style of cards but there are other words/ phrases I would like to add to Wanikani so if there is a way to do so my life would be just about complete​:sparkles::sparkles::sparkles:

Just a note, the “similar kanji” script is ready in case someone missed it:

It’s a bit hard for me to explain because of my english, so i will draw you an image.
First of all, i know about existing extinstions like Reorder ultimate and Lesson balance and they don’t do the same job, especially with a large lesson number.
The main idea is: Before or in lessons user can reorder items by himself. He can move item from a normal WK (or whatever addon you use) order to “User order” to learn these items first. Why? Well, the obvious reason: there are probably some words that you already know, so you can learn them first and don’t waste time on them. And the second reason: for “same” words as kanji, like 駅、億、百 and so on. I’m pretty sure, if you mastered kanji do guru, you can do it one more time easily and don’t increase your lessons number with items you already know.

I hope my wall of text was understandable.

I’m hitting a bug with the WK Double Check script where (as long as it is loaded) none of my reviews are counted. It seems to be a fairly recent behavior change.

Does anyone know if it would be possible to create a plugin which prevents you from accessing the forums when you have reviews (or lessons) available?

I could really do with such a script, but since they are separate sites, I’m not sure if it’s possible.

You could modify my [Lesson/Review Count in Forums] script.

On line 133, it gets the number of available reviews:

var reviews = json.requested_information.reviews_available;

Right after that, insert the following:

if (reviews > 0)
    window.location.href = 'https://www.wanikani.com/review';

Good idea!

The only problem is that I can’t get the script to work. Nothing is redirecting me to where I put in my API key.

Hmm. I’m assuming you’re using a script host? (TamperMonkey / GreaseMonkey, etc)
Are there any errors on the Javascript console? (Press F12 and click the Console tab)
Which browser are you using?

I’m using tampermonkey on chrome and i’m getting an unauthorization error (401).

Try going here manually:
and check if the API key is correct (it stores the key under a different name than some other scripts)

Thanks, it worked! Scripts have a habit of breaking for me, I think I’m just unlucky :man_shrugging:

The code you gave also works, so thanks! Hopefully this should prevent me from lazing around on the forums while I have reviews!


I’m wondering if there is a way to track accuracy long term? And something that could be broken up into its components? I know idigtech.com shows your accuracy currently, but I was hoping for a program that could tell me how I’m doing today vs say, three months ago. Would be helpful in identifying trends.

So, here’s what I would like: a categorizer. I want to be able to view:

  • All verbs;
  • Nouns;
  • Just the する and 来る verbs;
  • Just the な-adjectives;
  • Just the の-adjectives;
  • Just the い-adjectives;
  • the expressions (e.g. 久しぶり)
    and so on.
    So, the ones that I have unlocked, and if possible, all.

This would really help my grammar by helping me remember, use, and conjugate these. When I am busy with a grammar lesson about い-adjectives and wanting to play with て-form and くない for example.

Good idea?

I’ve been considering to make my own lists but not sure about the approach. If it could be made by someone who is good at userscripting, then man, that’d be fantastic!


This may already have been requested, but it’d be nice to have a level-up countdown. Basically, it’d grab the current SRS level of all your radicals and kanji and then use the timing formula of SRS0–>SRS1=4 hours, SRS1–>SRS2=8 hours, etc. and add that to the time to the next lesson with those kanji to total up how much time it will take (assuming you ace all reviews the minute they’re available) from the current time to level up. It could be accurate just to the hour ('cause that’s kinda where the level estimates are, unless the time to next level is less than an hour). I know the idigtech site gives an approximate level-up time, but I think that’s just based on an average. I’m hoping for something more accurate to where you currently are in your current level specifically.


On the stats site (idigtech), the ‘fastest’ column is exactly what you’re describing. It looks at all of your items’ srs levels (on the current level) and time-to-next-review, and figures out the soonest your kanji can cross the 90%-guru’d mark, i.e. soonest possible level-up.


Every time you burn an item, I would like to see a sexy anime manchest and some form of yelling.
