What do you want now? (Request extensions here)

Nope, that’s not what I’m looking for. Houhou is a good app, but as I said, I need iOS/Web app which I can use on my iPhone to review when I’m not home.
Anki+WaniKani Template doesn’t work on site and, maybe, in app (which alse cost a lot).  Also, I loathe Anki interface and functional.
Aren’t there good native iOS app for this purpose?


I’m needing an ignore button.  Was using one for quite a while but recent Tampermonkey update seems to have broken it and I don’t think it’s being supported anymore.  Any suggestions?

Taira-Suto-n said... I think It'd be cool to have a list of all the vocabulary in lists of what they are (Nouns, Verbs, Adjectives, Etc.), That lets you know how many of each type of word there are. I know when I study, I very frequently look at specifically Verbs or Adjectives when studying Grammar, And using Wanikani to know what verbs and adjectives I should know would be (I think) extremely useful and pretty cool.

I like this idea. It would allow me to practice grammar by writing sentences that have words from each of the noun/verb/adjective categories. It is easier for me to practice writing when I can pull the vocab I know from an organized list. Recalling a vocab word is more difficult than recognition so writing sentences that way would be easier than writing sentences from scratch.

With Genki I started to place words into categories but then stopped because it was time consuming. For Genki I think I will just take each word and try to make a sentence with it (with other words that come to mind) even if that may be more challenging. For now I may do the same with WaniKani.

What plugin (or script) adds a “1” button, the same mobile app has? It makes it so that reading comes right after meaning, without randomness. Found similiar plugin only for chrome, wanikani augmenter. I’m using firefox though, any ideas?

 The Wanikani Reorder script has a 1x1 button that you can use for that. It works with Tampermonkey on Chrome or Greasemonkey on Firefox.

For each item there is a certain point in time at which it can be burned if you advance as soon as possible. While it doesn’t really matter if your level is still low, it may be important once you reach level 60. Since all you do then is revieving old items until you burn them all, it must be very frustrating to make a mistake during a review of some item from, let’s say, level 60, because it effectively postpones the moment of burning all the items, which some people would probably like to avoid. It would be great if somebody created a script that detects if answering incorrectly in a certain review will postpone the “last burn time” and highlighted it in some way, so the user will be aware that he should be REALLY careful answering this one.

I think having a button you can click to see the last few WRONG answers, either  combined or next to the one for your last few right answers or whatever, would be incredibly helpful.  All too often I get some reading wrong and am hitting enter too fast that I don’t get to go back and see what I typed, and whether it was a typo or a legitimate mistake.

Don’t know if someone made something like this already but I looked around a bit and couldn’t find anything like it.

There's Mempo's script.  I don't remember how the color-coding scheme works:

I am sorry if this is already available/there is a way to do this … I am looking for a way to see a list of the pending lesson items.

The WK API doesn't have enough info to know what lessons are pending.... so I don't think this is possible.

 You could technically filter all radicals/kanji/vocab by what "ought to be" unlocked, then see what's missing
e.g. precompiled list of maps [level->radical] [level->radical->kanji] [level->radical->kanji->vocab]
compared to "self -> unlocked items"

 How does knowing SRS level of particular item help in this situation?

Let's say we are reviewing an enlightened item. Whether we can "afford" making a mistake or not, depends on state of other items. If all of them are also enlightened, making a mistake will significantly postpone "last burn time", while if they are all still apprentice, making a mistake won't really matter, since after falling back to guru it will be still possible to burn it earlier than the rest.

 I think you put way too much importance on burning all items. A lot of level 60's just stick around here on the forums if they only have a few items left that may be spread apart months ;p Just move on with life if that happens.

Oh well, it's not like I'm going to need this feature anytime soon anyway. I'd just like to be able to say one day that I finished whole WaniKani course and since I don't have a lifetime membership, it does matter to me when it will happen. That's also one of the reasons why I try to go through levels as fast as possible btw.

It's just an idea for script that might be useful for some people. If nobody is going to write it, I'll probably have to do it myself next year (once I reach level 60 :)

Hi all!

This may have been asked/discussed before. If so, I apologize, but I did some searching and didn’t find anything related to my question. (I’m bad at searching the right keywords sometimes though…) I actually think my question might be similar to haris3’s question above from a few days ago but I don’t know if I fully understand what he (or she? not sure? sorry!) meant by “pending lessons”.

I recently started using the “Wani Kani Ultimate Timeline”. It would be awesome if future lesson unlocks would show up on the timeline. (maybe that’s what haris3 meant by “pending lessons”? not sure?)

The timeline would assume that I completed all reviews it displays on time for these “pending lessons”. But it sounds like the API doesn’t have enough info to accomplish this? If so, I understand. It would just be nice to know what I have coming up and it would also help motivate me to stay on top of my reviews.

I’d like an external list of GURU+ Vocab that I can share with my online tutor.
it would be great to have it configurable so it can filter burned words, etc so I can have my teacher keep me practicing them.

Hello! 
Does anyone know how I could change the key that has to be pressed (instead of enter) to input an answer? 
I would love to change it because my little finger hurts after a hundred reviews and it sometimes hinders me from continuing. 
If someone could teach me how I should do it, or makes a little script for me, it would be lovely. 
Thank you in advance!

I believe there is a script that automatically enters once it recognises that you have put in the correct answer. I have never used it (sounded a bit too much like cheating to me), so I don't know if it is still supported or worked well.

1. Go here: https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/23847-wanikani-little-pinky-protector
2. Install script
3. Go to http://keycode.info/ in the browser you use for reviews/lessons
4. type in the key you want as shortcut (make sure it's not the same as existing WK shortcuts, like , or / )
(4,99. If you don't know how to edit a script, read my guide @ https://www.wanikani.com/chat/api-and-third-party-apps/12375)
5. copy paste the code from step 4 into the script at line 20.
So instead of "case 165: // EDIT THIS CODE FOR CUSTOM SHORTCUT", you should now have "case XXX: // EDIT THIS CODE FOR CUSTOM SHORTCUT".
The default button I installed is "ù" on Firefox. This is the letter on the right of the 'm' on my azerty keyboard.
If you don't know how to edit this script
6. Save the script.
7. Eat a cookie to congratulate yourself on all that cool hacker stuff you just pulled off.
8. Go to the gym to train that weakling pinky. BUFF UP THAT FINGER.
