I used to do this by hand so I am glad someone automated it. Useful when combining kanji and vocabulary decks from different sources (in my case RTK kanji and wanikani voc).
That said I would have liked to use a search string instead of a tag to specify managed cards. Also not all fields of a card necessarily need to have only known kanji, e.g. I want to check only the words themselves but not context sentences. (If you know Python this is a simple change in the code.)
Overall really great, but, and maybe it's just me, but I have a problem with this addon not unsuspending cards that contain non-kanji letters aka hiragana or katanaka. Would appreciate it if someone told me a method about how to fix this.
Incredibly useful! Thank you for your work. I wish it was automatic, like every time you synced it updated. The idiot that commented below didn't read what this addon is about and has no clue on how to properly study Japanese. Sad that he downvoted. Don't get discouraged, keep it up buddy :)
Suggestion: on the target cards (eg. sentence cards), only look in one specific field if there's unknown kanji. For example, in Nayr's 5k there's a field with a lot of extra info about the sentence with more kanji (that's not in the sentence) which causes your addon to incorrectly flag the cards.
This deck does the opposite of what I thought. I thought it would look at what sentences you have studied and un/suspend kanji as you learned them, not look at what kanji you have studied and un/suspend sentences.
Seems great! It would be even better if user could change settings in right in anki. Also it could use an alternative to managed tag -- just finding matured enough cards. Looking forward for the evolution of this addon! Also, please, add an ability to known kanji list to the most popular kanji learning apps like Kanji Tree Pro and Japanese Kanji Study (both android). It would be useful for writing practice.
Very useful. I actually modified the code so that it uses a tag instead of a deck to search for known kanji, since I use one big deck for everything and don't have a deck that's just kanji. It suspends all the right vocabulary, but the display it gives for newly suspended cards seems buggy. I don't think anything I changed could have affected that. I'd actually love to contact you to help update this add-on, if that's alright.
