Beemind maintained progress

This is an addon to track maintained progress with beeminder. Specifically it tracks rotestock: the number of cards that you have started studying and are caught up on reviewing; that is, they are not currently due. This number encapsulates both adding new things and staying on top of reviewing. This is the number that represents real progress; if you only track the number you've started, then when you fall behind on reviewing your number stays high but you might have actually forgotten everything and not made any true progress. This number is also useful when you're trying to work down a backlog of due items, since it's measuring the increase in caught up cards. Using this allows some flexibility without sacrificing overall progress. Your beeminder goal should be set to the number of new cards you want add on average to create a maintainable number of reviews per day, though you might want to temporarily start out with it higher if you are starting to beemind anki at a time when you have a large backlog of due cards. If you do not want to need to absolutely study every day, you can set your number of new cards to something higher in anki, get a bit ahead, and not need to do all your reviews and new cards every day - and if you get behind beeminder will guide you to catch up gradually, unlike the overwhelming amount of due cards situation that happen when you fall behind without beeminder. Warning: if you want to take a break, you need to schedule a negative slope equal to at least as many cards become due. Features: * Supports multiple goals, each tracking cards filtered by deck, tag, card type, note type, or anything else you can express as a search * It can post precise pessimistic reports so that if you don't sync one day beeminder will have the number that it should have if you didn't do any reviewing * For anki versions through 2.1.27: updates beeminder after syncing or exiting reviews (both of these are optional but on by default) or manually with a menu item. Automatically updating after sync is currently broken in 2.1.28+. I am prioritizing fixing that. How to use it: 1. Make an odometer goal on beeminder (requires an infinibee plan) 2. Go to the addon config (tools menu -> addons -> select this addon -> config button) and read the instructions there to set it up Development site: https://github.com/cayennes/anki-beemind-maintained-progress Updates: * June 1, 2020: Now defaults to no pessimistic reports. Also correct instructions on setting this.

Works great!

Thanks, great metric. Be sure to understand the metric and implications if you install: Your progress can go down with time and inactivity unlike in a typical Beeminder odometer goal.

Great addon, thanks!

But I wonder is there any way to update it via mobile?

Thank you so much! This is fantastic. The 'maintained progress' metric is perfect.

After trying the older plugins first this one worked out of the box for me, thank you so much for making it. Your metric sounds reasonable to me too, I'll start using it and see how it goes.

One little issue: I could not remove the pessimistic_reports setting from the config entirely (as suggested by the info text). Every time I closed the config, the default "7 days" value was readded. So I changed it to 0 days and the setting is not reset now. I'm new to beeminder and that is probably why I didn't understand the purpose of pessimistic_reports so I thought I'd start with only things I understand.

Thank you for sharing. Various other old implementations, but none working with the latest version of Anki. This one is working a treat!
