Progress Bar

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.

Thank you! Simple and effective!

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!

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.

Progressed faster than the deck. Showed it was done when it was not.

Love this. I would love to not lose my progress when I take a break, go to home screen, and sync.

Great add on, and the developer is a swell fella!

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.

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!

It doesn't work in Mac OS. After uninstalling and restarting, works fine. Can it also show percentage completed?

nice visual feedback

Great but the "config" panel doesn't appear in anki 2.1. You have to manually find and open "reviewer_progress_bar.py"
on 1546783346
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.
on 1535910613
very nice

Give a sense of place and location.

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).

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!

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

Good but often goes backwards even when I press Good... Is there a problem ?

It works fine for me. Excellent add on.
on 1512777600
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
