Autosync 2.1

<10kB. Updated 2019-03-09.


DISCLAIMER: I did not write this add-on. All credit goes to the original author at https://github.com/ftechz/anki-autosync who seems to have abandoned the project. I am simply uploading this to the 2.1 add-on list (previously it was only available for 2.0) for anyone who may find it useful. With this add-on, you will never need to press the sync button or worry about syncing again. If you are idle for more than a minute, your data will automatically be synced to AnkiWeb. Just make sure to click on the window if you are thinking about a card for more than a minute (which is rare, as most people do 4 or more cards a minute) so that it doesn't sync and return you to the deck list. If you want to change the idle time period, you can do so by changing a number in the source code. 2.0 add-on page: https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/162886199. (I changed the idle time from 15 minutes to 10 minutes) Edit: Unfortunately, this still syncs if you are editing something in the browser or even while you're in the middle of using Image Occlusion, which can make you lose your work. I do not know how to fix this (nor do I have the time to). So just beware.

Thank you

Had to uninstall it, after I ended up losing a lot of data I entered in a card during "edit mode". If you create cards where you manually type in a lot of data or regularly edit cards, I would avoid this app, as you will lose a lot of data and it can be very frustrating.

Does not work very well. Only syncs a handful of times before it stops. Please let me know how to fix this

Doesn't work. Still have to sync manually.

A must if you're using anki on multiple machines.

Works great. Thank you.

Looks good. As a note, the default values I saw when I checked the .py are:


If I understand the program right, then the deck syncs after 10 minutes of idle time as the default, not 1 like in the description.

Which is fine for me, make it whatever you want.
