    Flatpak users unzip the file to $HOME/.var/app/net.ankiweb.Anki/data/Anki2/addons21/

    very blatant
    on 1637892239
    I really want to try this add-on out so please, please, pleaseeeeeeeeeeee update it.
    on 1637001975
    Very cool looking.
    But had to play around a bit to get it working on Linux.
    To anyone wanting to know how, i download the zip from the github distro and unpacked it in the ~.local/share/Anki2/addons21/ directory
    I also needed to rename the resulting folder to Beautify, probably bc there was some problem with spaces in the filename.

    As a message to the creators, It would be nice if we had the style in the add and browse windows.

    Just makes our lives easier!
    on 1624824418
    Please upgrade to version 2.1.44, I want to use it and there is no way, there is no point in a beautiful designer and it can't be used.
    on 1624298361
    please update for 2.1.44. this is a really beautiful layout, tired of the same generic anki one lol
    on 1621865000
    If you want to make the GUI of Anki more good looking, yet are a lazy piece of shit (like i am), find an alternative for this add-on: to customize the look you have to wade through a whole slew of configuration files in the root of the add-on folder.

    on 1614777727
    Works perfectly on the latest Anki, just download the latest version from Github and install manually!
    on 1613573907
    Does not work on the latest version of Mac
    on 1613493868
    The version up here and on GitHub does not work with the latest version (2.1.38). The addon looks awesome though. I will definitely be waiting for an update
    on 1613031448
    Please can you update it and make it work with the latest version 2.1.35, please?
    on 1612958316
    Really love this!
    Unfortunately, I don't know how to update it from the GitHub page because your last update here is from May 2020 whereas the lastest one is from October 2020 on GitHub. I tried renaming the .zip file from GitHub to .ankiaddon but that didn't help. It would be great if you could guide us. (Edit: I figured it out. See steps below.)

    IMPORTANT Edit for new users:
    TL;DR: To update to the latest version which is not available here on Ankiweb but available on GitHub, just extract the .zip package from the GitHub page ( https://github.com/ShoroukAziz/Beautify-Anki/releases ) to <C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Anki2\addons21\> and enable it from the Anki's add-ons menu and restart Anki. Also, make sure you are using the Anki version that was released prior to the Beautify Anki version you're trying to use. As of 10th Feb '21, the latest compatible versions are Anki 2.1.35 (Oct. '20 release) which supports Beautify Anki v0.3.2-beta.3 (Oct. '20 release). You might also want to change some stuff in the add-on because the author has changed the looks a little.

    Detailed Steps:
    So I figured out how to manually install add-ons on windows:
    [But before we get started, make sure that you are using the Anki version that was released prior to the Beautify Anki version you're trying to use. As of 10th Feb '21 the latest compatible versions are Anki 2.1.35 (Oct. '20 release) which supports Beautify Anki v0.3.2-beta.3 (Oct. '20 release).]

    1) Open Anki and press Ctrl+Shift+A or simply open add-on preferences from Tools menu.
    2) After the add-on preferences window is open click on the 'View Files' button. A folder will open. Then exit Anki.
    OR simply
    Go to < C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Anki2\addons21\ > or the directory where Anki keeps your add-ons
    3) Download the latest version of Beautify Anki from the GitHub Page ( https://github.com/ShoroukAziz/Beautify-Anki/releases )
    4) Open the .zip file and copy all its contents (should contain more than one files and folders. I say this because the author had placed the files inside a folder called 'New Folder' in her v0.3.0-beta.3 release.) to a folder of your preferred name (I suggest Beautify_Anki) and copy this folder to the one you opened in Step 2.
    5) Again open the Anki Add-ons menu by pressing Ctrl+Shift+A or look in the Tools menu.
    6) Beautify_Anki (or whatever name you used for the folder) should appear in the list. Select this and click on 'Toggle Enable'.
    7) Restart Anki. Voila! You just updated Beautify Anki.

    Please please please ........ update this addon with the latest version.
    on 1609859078
    It didn't work for me sadly. No conflicting Add-ons, Anki 2.1.35. Error message saying the download code doesn't exist, or isn't' compatible with my version of Anki. (Windows)
    on 1609119922
    This add-on does not seem to be compatible with the Crostini Linux version of Anki on my Chromebook.
    on 1608308943
    So beautiful. Thanks for making this. I hope it could be possible to make it work with newer versions as well.

    Excellent and modern view.
    on 1602189821
    Very good but it weighs a lot. had to find a way to make anki not crash so much.
    on 1601000008
    Gorgeous. Simply *marvelous*! Gorgeous darling!
    on 1600694380

    on 1599501824
    The design is fantastic and is a huge upgrade from the original Anki UI. I'm much more excited to do my reviews now :) Many thanks to the author for putting in the time and effort to make such a great add-on!
    Comment from author
    Thanks a lot for reviewing the addon! I really appreciate it.
    on 1599202455
    Nice,but it is not installing in the latest version of Anki!!! :(
    Comment from author
    The latest update is available on Github if you'd like to try it. It will be published after doing some testing
    on 1598462662
    Just installed it on version 2.1.24 and it works like a charm ! I have lived a huge amount of years with the standard interface and reviewing was still a pleasure because I put a lot of effort in the design of my cards, but interface indeed matters : this add-on makes Anki beautiful and more pleasurable to work on than ever. Thanks!
    Comment from author
    Thank you very much for sharing your review. I really appreciate it!

    It's cool! Thanks a lot!
    on 1596221835
    Great design, but cannot drag and drop decks anymore (to create subdecks).
    Comment from author
    you can be renaming the sub-deck like this suberdeck::subdeck. Anyway the next update will have dragging and dropping
    on 1596213093
    A really good add-on if you are looking to revamp your anki main page display. It does not work well with the 'Enhance main window' add-on as it causes to details to be jumbled up
    on 1595852993
    I really loved it! As someone who's unfamiliar with codes and stuff, this is really convenient! Thank you so much for all your efforts.

    Just like what I said I'm not into codes and stuff like CSS, HTML and such and I wonder if there's a way for me to at least adjust the size of the screen and make it fit to my own screen since it's way too zoomed in and I have to scroll up/down and left/right and I have no idea why. Thank you!
    Comment from author
    Could you please post an issue on GitHub with screenshots and your screen size so I could help more
    on 1595786308
    Anki's interface is finally beautiful! Thank you SO much!
    on 1595769708
    Omg i love u. It's amazing
    on 1595727875
    my deck window with the pie chart isn't working. installed and reinstalled multiple times
    on 1595190821
    Tested on V2.1.22 Genuinely, Genuinely phenomenal add-on. There's some tiny kinks to fix but it's already such a wonderful change that those are really easily ignored. You spent a ton of time on this and it shows! Each of the themes looks great, the customization elements are really well done, I never thought I'd want stats as easily accessible on deck pages but you made it really worthwhile and clear.

    Thanks a million!

    Normal processing of Anki 0.3%.
    Processing with this App 87%.

    In this way beauty is worthless.
    on 1593228699
    Its very nice but it is incompatible with "Rate Speed Focus Mode (auto-alert, auto-reveal, auto-fail)"[https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/1046608507].
    on 1593006957
    PS : is there a way to change the background color of the bottom bar in the home screen ?
    EDIT : found it on your website, it explained very well ! Thank you :)
    on 1592864965
    Very good
    on 1592700807
    Amazing add-on. Easy to use.
    on 1592619940
    Very awesome! But can you add config that we can set interface lauguage?
    Comment from author
    Absolutely !! That's already coming in the next update
    on 1592328345
    Awesome!! How to combine this addon with another that changes de buttom of review bottom bar e.g. Advanced Review Bottom Bar? The buttons of ARBB do not appear (infos, undo, skip, etc).
    Comment from author
    there's an option in the configuration file
    "change answer buttons" set it to false
    on 1591885807
    Great add-on

    Brings Anki into the modern era! Thanks!
    on 1591109316
    Very nice, works great, and I really like how I can customize pretty much everything. I also like the statistics on the side. Being able to see the amount of work left makes it a lot easier to keep going.
    Comment from author
    Very glad you like it!
    on 1591005669
    Please make it compatible with "Enhance main window"

    Please make it compatible with Enhanced Window
    Comment from author
    Hi, please post your request on github.
    on 1590764781
    Although the addon is very beautiful, it is in conflict with other addons and, for example, the card rating bar is not rushed.
    on 1590676794
    Made anki really slow when i tried to use it, so I uninstalled it. Now my anki has a weird gradient background that I can't get rid of...
    Comment from author
    Sorry, it didn't work for you. but if you uninstalled it there's no way it can change your Anki.
    on 1590653980
    Hi, great add-on. Is there anyway to turn off the background images and keep it simple? like colours or gradient?
    Can we manually change the background too? That would be nice.

    Also can you make it so the icons and colours can all be changed for every element?

    It is one of the best add-ons i've seen. Using it now, great work thanks.
    Comment from author
    Hi, you can delete the background images if you don't want them and you'll be left with the gradient. and yeah you can change the backgrounds and colors too you'll find instructions in the GitHub wiki (the link is already posted here)
    Also, a major update is coming soon which will allow even more customization so stay tuned
    on 1590588704
    Absolutely fantastic add-on, I think it really takes Anki to a next level, design and looks do matter, and this makes it the next anki session much more enjoyable. Great work man!
    Comment from author
    Thanks a lot!
    on 1590534669

    Works extremly well but doesn't work with low-key anki

    An error occurred. Please start Anki while holding down the shift key, which will temporarily disable the add-ons you have installed.
    If the issue only occurs when add-ons are enabled, please use the Tools > Add-ons menu item to disable some add-ons and restart Anki, repeating until you discover the add-on that is causing the problem.
    When you've discovered the add-on that is causing the problem, please report the issue on the add-on support site.

    Hi, Please, don't report errors here. I can only track the ones on Github.
    Anyway, If you're having this error and your Anki system language is English then you need to disable any addon that changes the look of the answer button.
    If you're using any language other than English then wait for the next update

    Anki revolutionizer!!!! <3 <3 <3 Finally I feel like I'm not in the 80s anymore lol
    Comment from author
    Thanks a lot <3 <3 <3
    on 1590083960
    Definitely recommended: this addon is just amazing! Thanks to you, Anki has finally arrived in the 21st century. Altough it's a solo project addon, it truly feels like a whole new program from some large enterprise. The standard settings are already awesome and it's great having the possibility to customize it even more in order to look just like I want it to.

    Of course there are still a few little bugs in it, but it's a beta version, so what? It's already more than just usable and I can neither imagine what the final version will look like nor wait for it to be published.

    Thanks a lot for taking the time to write this comment. I really appreciate such reviews they motivate me to do more! I'm already working on the first update which will fix lots of issues and add more customization options.

    I've never written a review for an addon, but I've visited your GitHub page. You, madam are going to revolutionize the UI of Anki forever! I want to thank you for your hard work! I'm looking forward for the full release.

    Again, thank you very much!

    There's a bug that causes that error when using a non-English system language. If that's the case with you then a fix will be coming to the next update.
    If you're using English. and, this problem still happens. please, post an issue on Github
