What do you want now? (Request extensions here)

In new lessons,

This would save me a lot of trouble :slight_smile:

Stopwatch/timer of reviews


I wish I could have an extension that starts a timer when you begin your reviews and ends when you finish, so I can see how long it takes me to do however many reviews. Can that be possible?


WK Reviews Timer userscript:  https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/8432-wk-reviews-timer 
 thank you!!!!!!

I’ll admit I’m a little lazy and didn’t want to go through the 10 pages to see if anyone has mentioned this before but hopefully not.

Anyway, there are times when I’m doing the lessons where I like to copy and paste the example sentences into google translate just so I can hear the sentence. I find it useful for two reasons, one is that there are times where I know the vocal but not the kanji so hearing the sentence can help with the overall comprehension, but I also feel like hearing the sentence helps to memorise whilst practising listening comprehension too.

So I was wondering, I have very little understanding of user scripts by the way, if there was a way of quickly linking this manoeuvre just next to the example sentence. Copy and pasting the sentence isn’t all that annoying but having a little button to listen to the sentence whilst staying on the lesson page would be great.

I’m just starting so maybe it is already implemented on higher levels but there is no recognizing the word from listening. Maybe it could be optional (I can’t really have these weird noises at my desk at work) but it would close the loop. I can read bushes, I can write in bushes,  but in real life if someone says anything to me I have to translate it to written bushes to understand. It looks like my processor has hung up and it delays the conversation when I have to switch the face off to process the bushes in my head… but maybe it’s just me

 i'm pretty sure there's a webapp for this. check out my thread here and see if you can find it because i'm too lazy to look through it for you.

Has anyone made an extension that stops you from getting the vocab word wrong if you mistype the hiragana? 

It is annoying to mess up something like 後ろ because I accidentally type 後る.

I know the kanji and the meaning, but mistype the hiragana. I think it would be nice to have the answer box shake similar to when you type in the wrong reading for a kanji.

Could anyone make a script that was customaizable to replace certain keys with words? For example, I hate having to type out ‘prefecture’ every time, so instead I would hit ‘0’ and prefecture would be typed out and ‘9’ for する, 8 for ‘to’, 7 for ’ house of representatives’ ect.

Any insight on preexisting scripts as well would be very helpful, thank you.

That should work(I didn't thoroughly test it, but the logic seems right).  Has the 0-9 keys in there.  You'll have to change the text input values to whatever you want it.

Hey, this is a great idea! Though, I can only imagine how hard that'd be to create! :(

 If it is only cross-checking the kana it really wouldn't be too hard.

There’s a lot of external sites showing you what you’ve learned so far, comparing it to the JLPT levels and Joyo levels, and while those sites are great, I’d love to be able to see an evolution of what I’ve learned.

For example, seeing a stacked graph (like http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_D9-JNTtRKgs/TC9RiVb3tMI/AAAAAAAABEE/ES1tv8H8R6k/s400/Picture+165.png) of my kanji over time (with the burned stacked on top of the enlighted on top of master, etc.) would be really nice.

 Awesome dude! Thanks. I just cleared my reviews before seeing this. cant wait to try it out!

I would find it really helpful if there is a feature that shows similar looking kanji in the description of every kanji.

 I've been using http://similarity.gakusha.info/ and just copying and pasting to do the search. Given that all these kanji have Unicode codepoints, it's probably (more or less) trivial to drop a "(similar)" span and link it to http://similarity.gakusha.info/?kanji=<whatever kanji>.

 I love you.

Edit: And the about page! ahhhh! It's open source for anyone's site, adaptive to suggestions of similarity by users and otherwise is founded based on kanji stroke orders.

Snap! I didn’t realize all that! I always like it when the academic linguistics and software works collide.

A little off topic, but I was wondering if I could commission someone to build a AppleWatch app for WaniKani?..

Hey,
Can the OP put all provided extensions in the first post? I don’t really want to go through each post to see if I want something someone mentioned. 

This has probably been requested but… How about a leaderboard tool? Add your friends’ usernames or api’s once, and view your compared progress on the wanikani homepage. It’d make good use of community to motivate each other.
