Progress Bar

<10kB. Updated 2017-08-30.
The author has shared 62 other item(s).


A progress bar that shows your progress in terms of passed cards per review session. SCREENSHOTS Default settings: Bottom location, rounded corners: VIDEO TUTORIAL The customization and use of the Progress Bar add-on is demonstrated in the following video (alongside other similar add-ons): COMPATIBILITY Initial tests have shown this add-on to both work on Anki 2.0.x and Anki 2.1.x. However, as the Anki 2.1.x line of releases is still in beta, I cannot provide any kind of official support for this platform. Please do not report issues with Anki 2.1 in the review section below. Instead, please report all issues you encounter on GitHub. BEHAVIOR The bar can't be seen from the list of decks. It opens in a deck's overview page, and, by default, the bar goal for a session is the total new, lapsed, and due cards in the deck at that point. Upon completion, the bar remains full as you're taken to the deck's overview state. If you leave the review state otherwise, the bar resets. CONFIGURATION By making small changes at the top of the add-on's source code, you can change the colors, make the corners more rounded, decide whether to see the percentage (e.g., "50%"), or alter the bar's orientation (horizontal or vertical), location (which of the window's four sides), and direction (which way it moves). The configuration section will also allow you to customize how your card tally is calculated. By default, both new cards, cards in learning, and review cards are factored in. Each of these queues can be individually toggled off by setting its respective variable to False at the top of the config section. CHANGELOG 2017-08-23 – Limit to daily review limits by default (thanks to Sebastien Guillemot) New setting that shows remaining count (thanks to Sebastien Guillemot) Bug fixes and smaller improvements (thanks to Sebastien Guillemot) Initial 2.1 compatibility 2017-08-06 – Rework configuration section, add options for width and new/review queue 2017-06-15 – Re-upload SUPPORT Please do not report issues or bugs in the review section below, as I will not be able to reply to them nor help you. Instead, please report all issues you encounter either on GitHub, or by posting a new thread on the Anki add-on support forums while mentioning the name of the affected add-on in your thread title.

Excellent job, 2.1.44 works, just follow the steps in comment 4/6/2021
on 1625016640
if you updated/reinstalled Anki and this addon doesn't work any more, please follow the steps written on the comment from 05/06/2021.
on 1624857254
The installation didn't work at first upon using the code shown in the description (2091361802), though I am using Anki 2.1.44. However, upon going through the reviews, I fell on one that showed an alternative way, and it worked (the review in question was made on 05.06.2021). Cheers to the mate and the author!

Go to https://github.com/glutanimate/anki-addons-misc and download the masterzip file "Download a copy of the full repository zip archive" the same file you get from that line highlighted in blue. Extract the files and keep them in downloaded files for an easy access point.

Go to the windows bar and search up %APPDATA%\Anki2 and copy the entire review_progress_bar folder over into addons 21( you find the progress bar in the src)
Then close and restart anki it should work.


You guys should try to understand that every new update breaks lots of addons.
on 1622088992
I love this! I just installed it from github and went into the files to hopefully figure out what I needed to change in order to make it look how I want to. (I've never learned python.)
The comments in the code really are helpful. I can't believe you took the time to type all of that out dude. True dedication.
on 1621949872
Absolutely fantastic add on and a great developer! If it's not working for you, make sure you have the latest stable version (I think that's 2.1.40 at the time of writing) and download the 'master' zip file from github, as suggested in other reviews. Follow the instructions and it works like a charm
on 1621518875
All of your add-ons, including this one are absolute blessing. God bless you. You are savior. Breaks my heart to see the downvotes.

I received word about a month ago that they fixed the issue... however, it has been approx. a month since I receive this message. I am not trying to be a jerk, but seriously, we need this. I will update to a thumbs up once the update is available.

It does not work in Version 2.1.38 (355e4cd5). We urgently need to update the tool.
on 1616919753
Good stuff. Nice to see how far you are doing. Very encouraging when you are doing a lot of reps but most of them are "again"s so your progress does not increase.

Those that downvote for being "outdated". It works. Copy the one from the Github page. Or else don't use a computer. Like the working version is there you just have to get it. How ungrateful can you be?

doesn't work
on 1616533398
Hey author, don't mind the impolite comments, you have done much for the Anki community. I hope you are well and you have time to return to contribute more in the future. For those who are looking for an alternative, the remaining time add-on is really great and also very informative.
on 1616183649
People donated to your Patreon and you took the money and ran you piece of shit. This add-on has been broken for longer than I can keep track of.

Not supported for the 2.1.42 :|

It worked fine but almost 4 years have passed since the last update.
on 1614293297
I am on version 2.1.35 and the add-on is working for me. I updated the source code from GitHub pull request #152 along with the meta.json file. I tried to detail how to fix the issue in GitHub issue #163, or look at the add-on rating from 1/16/2021 below.

want it to be updated
on 1610864897
Great plugin. It seems to be working fine with Anki latest version using this updated file:


and updating the meta.json file to this:

{"name": "Progress Bar", "mod": 1504033211, "min_point_version": 0, "max_point_version": -38, "branch_index": 0, "disabled": false, "conflicts": []}

Obviously don't expect support from the author if you do this.

Add-on is great for motivation to get you through a deck. Hopefully, there will be an update soon for the current Anki-version.
on 1607894606
Seems to be a good one. Looking forward to the update so that I can also use it, though.
on 1607469920
Excellent way of self motivating during review blocks. Thank you.
on 1607352004
please update

edit: Appreciate that an update is in the works, and apologies that you've felt disrespected. I've been running on 2.1.26 specifically for this add on since February. While I think folks have been patient for an update, I understand that being down-voted into oblivion sucks. This is one of my favorite add ons, so I'm looking forward to updating my rating when I can update Anki and continue to use this add on.
Comment from author before post was edited
Guys, leaving four downvotes in a row with "Please update" is not a very polite nor effective way to get add-on authors to do something. The update is in progress and will be available when it's ready. Until then you're more than welcome to use Anki 2.1.26 which is clearly marked as the last supported Anki version above. Generally speaking: If you like to use a lot of Anki add-ons, it's best to stay a few versions behind as new Anki updates constantly break add-ons.

This is my favorite add on by far. I recently was forced by anki to update my application to a newer version that is past the supported version for this add-on. Would love an update.

Needs to be updated. Cannot download. : (
on 1602770537
Please .... Update this addon >>>>>>>>>
on 1602162646
Hate to dislike this nice addon. But the only thing I didn't like, and which was a deal breaker is the fact that the bar resets everytime you leave. I have decks with more than 400, taking about 2 hours to complete, I can't possible do them in one go. And the fact that the bar resets, makes it feel like a lost progress.

Would be great if you also count the review count as well, so the total would be. New+lapsed+due+reviewed.

Not Working in Anki 2.1.30 (06a69c25). Don't know how to fix like someone here in the comments said. :(
on 1599206663
Applying/downloading the version from liuzikai made this work. This is still a great add-on.

Excellent means of tracking progress! Love how configurable the progress bar is.
on 1597760454
It was a great add-on (hence the "thumb up"), but unfortunately, it doesn't work with 2.1.30, the lastest version. There is an open GitHub issue here: https://github.com/glutanimate/anki-addons-misc/issues/146

In version 1.3, the bar does not show the right value/percentage for me.

It can be fixed by updating the code (replacing it) inside the "reviewer_progress_bar.py" add-on file with the one found here (currently version 2.0):

Additionally, if someone wants to show the percentage value, it is needed to edit two lines (the 2nd one below makes sure that the % text fits inside the progress bar):
showPercent = True # Show the progress text percentage or not.
maxWidth = "20px" # (e.g. "5px". default: "")

Great app, shows your progress in each deck!
on 1586730599
Literally a life-saver! This add-on combined with Speed Focus Mode has forced me to sit and get through my cards. The bar keeps me from going back to the deck home page and the speed focus mode keeps me from zoning out. Together I am being so efficient.

on 1579451437
Using a Macbook Air - after adding Progress Bar, my Anki crashed 4 times in ~10 hours, after never having crashed s/p months of use. Pretty bummed about it because the concept is strong. Will wait for bug fixes before trying again.
Comment from author
Sorry to hear that. Unfortunately it's very difficult to investigate issues like this without more information (like the exact error message, your system and Anki setup, and more). The thing is: Over close to 2 years of the add-on being out, this is the first report to that effect. So whatever problem you're facing is likely to be a combination of factors specific to your system, which I would need to know more about in order to attempt reproducing the fault. If you could shoot me a message at ankiglutanimate@gmail.com, or open up a support thread on the Anki forums (https://anki.tenderapp.com/discussions/add-ons → requires no registration), that would be a great first step to go down that troubleshooting journey. Thanks!

Great but the "config" panel doesn't appear in anki 2.1. You have to manually find and open "reviewer_progress_bar.py"

Simple and helpful! Great job!
on 1545010225
Doesn't work for 2.1x. Even when I disable the learning cards, my bar always ends up randomly somewhere.
on 1543963317
This looks like a good idea for a mod, but it does not count cards correctly. Would love it if it worked.
on 1543276770
Great !
on 1542281078
This tool is very interesting but I have a problem with it: when I leave the deck I'm studying for a break and suppose that I have studied 50% of the cards then when I go back the percentage is back to 0%, instead of 50%. Is there a way to save the progress I made freezing the % in some way? Thanks! Anyway your work is amazing!
on 1536009418
Gives a satisfying feeling during review, unlike the card counts at the bottom.

Nice one. Edit these colors in order to make it fit Night Mode addon (line 45):
qtxt = "aliceblue" # Percentage color, if text visible.
qbg = "#333333" # Background color of progress bar.
qfg = "#17b30a" # Foreground color of progress bar.
qbr = 0 # Border radius (> 0 for rounded corners).
on 1528588800
The bar acts strangely by default, but if I use "includeLrn = False", it becomes much better. Learning cards stop to be counted, but it makes the bar act much more "normal" (does not go backwards).
Overall good addon, I like it!
on 1528243200
on 1525996800
With the big deck, it's very useful
on 1522281600
it jumps up and down and at the end its not 100% its somewhere in the middle
Comment from author
Try setting "includeLrn = False" in the settings, as recommended further up in the reviews. Most of the issues with the add-on are caused by cards in learning jumping back and forth between different card queues. Relevant bug report: https://github.com/glutanimate/anki-addons-misc/issues/33
on 1517702400
Good but often goes backwards even when I press Good... Is there a problem ?

If you have a small deck, it somehow works though it behaves a little unpredictable. If you have a very big deck, it just does not work at all.
on 1507075200
Beautiful, but it doesn't work

The progress bar is beautiful, you can customise it, which is really cool. However, the progress bar simply doesn't work, when I finish my deck, the progress bar doesn't display 100%. Sometimes I click on "good" and the progress bar does nothing and sometimes it moves even backwards!
on 1505779200

I've been waiting foreeeeeever for someone to make this add-on

on 1500508800
more thin progress bar

Add 'max-height: 5px;' in line 130 if you want a more thin progress bar like this: https://goo.gl/tjJuRR
