AnkiApp Importer

<10kB. Updated 2022-07-01.
The author has shared 18 other item(s).


An add-on to import decks from the copycat AnkiApp (https://www.ankiapp.com/). It appears that AnkiApp started to paywall the deck export feature. So you can no longer export a zip of your cards without paying. This add-on salvages the cards from the SQLite database and was inspired by the Reddit post linked above. It can import cards, decks, note types, and media files. How to Use Notes & Known Issues Changelog - 2022-07-01: - Add note about database file location on macOS and fix issue with the file not being selectable. - Add note about the download button in AnkiApp. - 2022-04-15: Handle missing media files and warn about them. - 2022-03-5: - Show progress dialog and the number of imported notes. - Fix for some image formats not being recognized. - Fix import error on some collections. - 2022-01-21: Import deck description. - 2022-01-17: Initial release.

For me on Mac I found the database under this path: ~/Library/Containers/com.ankiapp.client/Data/Documents/ankiapp and imported it successfully. Thanks a bunch!

Thank you so much for this! For those who were wondering about how to import on Mac, just look for Ankiapp in finder's search bar. The rest of folders look exactly the same. If the file you're trying to import is grayed out, give it a .csv extension then the importer will be able to recognize it.

Thank you for the info! I plan to add an option to automatically find AnkiApp's database file in the user folder and import it.

Save my time !
As many, I thought AnkiApp was the same as Ankiweb...
I'm not an expert, but I finally succeed.
If this may help some of you, here tips from a millenial who feel like a boomer on computer :
- The "Import from Ankiapp" tool was not directly available after I had download the add on. I had to quit AnkiWeb and start it again.
- I couldn't reach the "file_0" file with AnkiWeb, so I manage to find it with the explorer, then copy it on my desk. 2 secondes after, all my cards were upload on AnkiWeb.
Thanks a lot !

You are my hero! I felt like such a fool! I hadn't used Anki in 7 years and needed to study. I downloaded and started using the wrong one and only found out when I tried using the app. You saved me so much rework and most of all you prevented that company from extorting me! Thank you so much!
