(Random) Sequence Inserter

0.02MB. Updated 2017-04-12. Only supports Anki 2.0.x.
The author has shared 62 other item(s).


Allows you to define lists and sequences which can later be referenced in your cards through a special tag syntax. For instance, having defined fruit = ["apple", "orange", "banana"] as a collection you could then reference that collection within your notes using ||set::fruit::1||. When reviewing your cards this tag would then be randomly assigned a value drawn from the fruit collection, i.e. apple, orange, or banana. FEATURES VIDEO DEMONSTRATION USAGE Sequence tags can be inserted anywhere within your fields or card templates. The tag syntax is quite elaborate and explained in a separate document. You can edit cols. py in the add-on directory to define global item collections. This file is user-specific, so your collections will be safe across add-on updates. Here is a quick example of how the fruit collection mentioned above could be defined: collections { "fruit": ["apple", "orange", "banana"] } Make sure to consult the inline documentation in cols. py for more information on the exact collection and subsequence syntax. CLIENT SUPPORT Only the desktop releases are supported at this time. Your sequences will not be substituted on AnkiWeb or any of the mobile clients, but rather appear in their literal form.

Great addons, but sadly it blocks out addon "Additional Card Fields", blank fields when I use {{info::Ivl}} ect.
I know its not your problem but just in care for you know.

Useful for putting items in random order

the documentation is not for the faint of heart, but the youtube review shows a lot of good examples. This plugin can do a LOT, but here's an example that should help a lot of people—
Which of these has the same membrane potential?
||set::random_list_1|Skeletal Muscle,Cardiac Muscle,Smooth Muscle,Neurons,Erythrocytes::5::dlm|
||pick::answer|Skeletal Muscle,Cardiac Muscle,Smooth Muscle,Neurons,Erythrocytes::1||

Brilliant and powerful

This add on is definitely has more uses than I would ever need. I'm using it for images, and for vocabulary synonyms in a language learning context. It saves me from making dozens of cards in a note type. I only use Anki on the PC, so I can see why that would be a downside of this add-on. According to a user on Reddit, this add-on conflicts with the multiple choice add-on, so your mileage may vary.
