AnkiConnect enables external applications such as Yomichan to communicate with Anki over a simple HTTP API. Its capabilities include executing queries against the user's card deck, automatically creating new cards, and more. AnkiConnect is compatible with the latest stable (2.1.x) releases of Anki; older versions (2.0.x and below) are no longer supported. See the AnkiConnect homepage for more information.


As add-ons are programs downloaded from the internet, they are potentially malicious. You should only download add-ons you trust.

Supported Anki versions:

To download this add-on, please copy and paste the following code into Anki 2.1:


If you were linked to this page from the internet, please open Anki on your computer, go to the Tools menu and then Add-ons>Browse & Install to paste in the code.

This add-on previously supported Anki 2.0. You can download the last version supporting 2.0 here. As Anki 2.0 has been discontinued, no support is available for this version.

so cool

Essential add-on that is solid.

Thank you very much. It's a fantastic tool for learning languages!!

At this moment, using the AnkiConnect addon, the Back Template of the card is not created well. But you can edit it and copy it from here: https://github.com/dobladov/youtube2Anki

I prefer to work on my listening, so I removed this two lines from the Front Template:

And put in the Black Template:

Integrates perfectly with my markdown to anki workflow.
on 1604696106
Makes anki run slowly for me, but this is yomichans fault. I have a large deck and it might be related to yomichans duplicate check

Had to start anki with Shift key held to disable all addons, then disabled ankiconnect. Everything besides ankiconnect is working fine now.

It hasn't been working with firefox for three days now. I can't get the + signs in yomichan to show up for some reason.
on 1549963026
Mac users remember to change app nap as the below review says.
on 1549130665
essential add-on.
on 1548920851
I think it's a great idea, and it gives a lot of freedom to augment/redesign Anki. Thanks!
on 1547820670
it is very good
on 1547231603
I use it on my application that retrieves definitions and examples for words.

on 1545352043
For Mac User

Anki 2.1.6 2.1.7 changed it's app domain name,

so if you want to change the app nap for anki

1. Start the Terminal application.
2. Execute the following commands in the terminal window:

defaults write net.ankiweb.dtop NSAppSleepDisabled -bool true
defaults write org.qt-project.Qt.QtWebEngineCore NSAppSleepDisabled -bool true
3. Restart Anki.

I use this with Chrome Yomichan extension and it works great. Has worked well since I first installed it over half a year ago. Thank you for the awesome add-on :)
on 1544444508
This is a really excellent project
on 1542569320
Love this plugin.. We use it with Polar to sync flashcards form PDF books directly into Anki. You can read your PDFs and HTML content in Polar and create the flashcards there and then we use Anki Connect to transfer them to Anki.

on 1542202269
This is such a fantastic idea!
on 1542030950
on 1541305555
Great add-on. One drawback that I don't know if it's the fault of Anki or the add-on:
I can't figure out how to make fields keep new line characters when sending them to Anki. Adding both \n and \r\n to the field doesn't result in Anki breaking the text up into lines.
on 1540726965
Very Good , Thanks
on 1539877667
This app is helpful
on 1539747739
Thanks so much!! This plugin helped me write this Hammerspoon Spoon https://github.com/ldanilov/AnkiShortcuts to add notes with simple shortcuts.
on 1539497575
Required for Yomichan
on 1539359105
Great app!

And I'm so happy that there's a firefox extension. I've always been using chrome since I assumed the more niche extensions would never make their way to firefox. But this is the only "killer" extension I need, and I didn't even check if it was on firefox lol.

Cheers for the good work.

Incredibly helpful addition by a very responsive dev

This is the add-on that's been keeping a bunch of Anki-related Google/Firefox ex

Not sure it the author would see it or not, but thank you for your work!
As a code-dummy,I don't know whether this is a beautifully written py. file or not, but sure to say that without it, a couple of Anki extension would be at great trouble.
