The Pinyin Toolkit addon for Mandarin Chinese pinyin in the Anki Spaced Repetition System (http://ankisrs.net/) Google Discussion Group at http://is.gd/LK9v2g List of issues at https://github.com/chatch/pinyin-toolkit/issues Adds a lot of features for Mandarin Chinese learners. See the docs at http://batterseapower.github.com/pinyin-toolkit/ for full details. Access features from Anki at Tools > Add-ons > Pinyin Toolkit Features working in Anki 2: - generate note details in the editing view - bulk fill missing fields (invoke from the menu) - preferences dialog Features NOT working in Anki2: - stats and graphs - audio pack download - dictionary update and generation - color keys NOTE: (Chinese Support Addon) You can run Anki with BOTH this addon and the Chinese Support Addon installed at once. By default Chinese Support Addon will operate on notes with 'Chinese' in the model name and Pinyin Toolkit will operate on notes with 'Mandarin' in the model name. If you want this plugin to operate on 'Chinese' models see note below on Model names. If you temporarily want to use a feature in one addon you can rename the note model name. Use the feature then rename it back.... For example you might want to use the Pinyin Toolkits' Bulk Update feature then go back to Chinese Support Addon for regular note editing. NOTE: (Model name) Pinyin Toolkit will operate on all notes with a Model Name containing the string 'Mandarin'. This is configurable from Tools > Add-ons > Pinyin Toolkit > Preferences > Model tab. You can add a list of model name keywords seperated by commas. NOTE: (Static dictionary) The dictionary is bundled with the addon. In Anki 1 the dictionary was downloaded and then built on startup. Additionally it was rebuilt when the data or cjklib library was updated. Issue https://github.com/chatch/pinyin-toolkit/issues/5 exists to fix this ... Version: 0.7


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

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.

Very nice! An option to have a separate field for traditional characters would be awesome!

Crucial tool for Chinese cards

Very useful tool to speed up the notecard creating process.

I only gave it 4/5 because it has some holes in the audio pack (maybe just four or five out of several hundred sounds).

I wish someone would update this.

The sounds I've noticed missing: shou, lv, rang (still has 4th tone rang).

No more traditional character support

Traditional characters are not generated from simplified ones any more.
