What do you want now? (Request extensions here)

Here you go. I have not tested it much, so if you need something changed let me know.


Any interest in something like this?

Anyone know if there’s a script to automatically reload the main page when new reviews become available? The information on when new reviews are coming is already there, so seems like it should be fairly straightforward. Could even just reload once each hour on the top of the hour I guess. I guess ideally it would only refresh the element that shows how many reviews are ready. Maybe this is something the WaniKani team itself should tackle though :thinking:

Hmm, I made one (it’s called “Real (Time) Numbers”) but I don’t think it’s updated for the new dashboard layout. Not sure when I will have time either

It looks nice! I think there are some extensions that can serve a similar purpose from what I have read on the forums.

I should add however that this could be the first user script I use (on occasion) for WaniKani (since I usually do reviews on mobile) if you do…

Hello fellas!

Is there a script that will let you remove the vocabulary from the lessons and reviews, an subtract that from the total that shows on the home screen and review/lesson screens?

i know i can ignore the vocab with the reorder script, but that doesn’t change the numbers on the screens, so they just pile up :frowning:

If it’s possible to do i would be extremely thankful.

There is no such script as no one would recommend ignoring vocab


I agree with Kumirei. Please do the vocab!

If you want to pretend you burned everything, see this:


I try to limit the number of lessons I do per day to 20. I find that if I do more than 20 lessons per day, my retention suffers. But if I finish my 20 lessons and have just a few lessons left in the queue, I find it very hard not to do those too, and suffer the consequences the next few days when I can’t remember what I tried to learn.

What I would like is a script that counts the number of lessons I have done per day, and if I have done my 20, it hides the number of lessons remaining until tomorrow, making it look like I have none left. Or disables the New lessons button and replaces it with a text saying: “No more lessons today” or something like that. Is that even possible?

It’s not really about burning things, but being more efficient. i think the way wanikani teaches vocabulary is awful and it feels more like a liability than anything else, but that doesn’t mean i don’t study vocabulary. I just do it outside wanikani in a way i feel is more productive.

WaniKani Regret

  • Regret not doing the review when the times come, causing backlog.
  • Tell when you should actually do the review (in the past).

extension/scripts request:
I recently had as much as 450 reviews, now down just under 300… I’m usually using my phone to do reviews. I’d like to know if anyone made an extension that makes the home button a little larger. I also use the lightning script and having them side-by side, I end up pressing both. I think increasing the size of the home button, if possible, for mobile use would be helpful when I need to put a hold on my reviews.


Consider using a third-party app.
If on Android, try Flaming Durtles.
If on iOS, try Tsurukame.

On Android. Thanks, I wasn’t aware of that app, so I’ll try it out.

I can do that. Do you want it to show the time your reviews were first available? Or just when the critical reviews were available?

Edit: Actually I can do both, I’ll just make the critical review setting a toggle.


This is what I got so far (lol). I’m currently making it so you can edit the text in a settings panel. Thoughts or suggestions?

Since you all have more experience with how WaniKani works, does anyone know if it is technically possible to change the ignore button script to allow me to ignore the previous wrong answer? I find I often accidentally double-tap the enter key by reflex which is super annoying when I make a dumb typo, such as fat fingering a hiragana at the end of a word where the hiragana is clearly visible and I know what it says :slight_smile:

I would like a script that displays the items in SRS stage Apprentice I, with each item a clickable link to the item page. This could be a table similar to the default tables found on the WK dashboard. Or in the (preferred) alternative this could be expanding the self study script with a button that goes to the current item page when reviewing this item.

I have found that items that stay in Apprentice I without moving to Apprentice II are items I didn’t learn properly in lessons. I wish to go over that list and memorize the items mnemonics again. I also want to be able to write my own mnemonics in the notes section of the item page. These activities require access to the item page.

Many thanks to whoever is willing to pick up this request.

Edit: I have found a satisfactory workaround. I no longer need this. Many thanks to whoever has been willing to pick this up.

Use the Double-Check script instead of other ‘ignore’ scripts, and turn on Mistake Delay in the settings. It prevents the double-tap ‘enter’ by ignoring a second press of the enter key for about 1.5 seconds when you make a mistake.

(As always, just be careful to only use it for true typos, not for knowledge mistakes.)
