Add Hyperlink

0.02MB. Updated 2020-07-30. Only supports Anki 2.1.x.
The author has shared 70 other item(s).


This add-on adds a dialog to enter hyperlinks (see screenshot below) and some context menu entries for handling hyperlinks. The shortcuts to insert a hyperlink (default Ctrl+Shift+H) and unlink (Ctrl+Shift+Alt+H) can be configured using the configuration window of 2.1: Tools>Add-ons, select the add-on and click on "Config". Use this at your own risk. This is a partial fork of the add-on Power Format Pack (Copyright 2014-2017 Stefan van den Akker) because it won't be ported to 2.1 (as of 2018-11). # Alternatives For some uses cases (links to the same site that have a similar url structure) this built-in feature is better: https://apps.ankiweb.net/docs/manual.html#dictionary-links # bugs, errors, feedback Please do not use reviews for bug reports or support requests. I don't get notified of your reviews, and properly troubleshooting an issue through them is nearly impossible (formatting is limited and I can't reply multiple times). If you find a bug let me know in the official anki support forum, on github. The source code is available on github. # other useful add-ons If you want to replace the PowerFormatPack in Anki 2.1 you might also be interested in these add-ons: - Mini Format Pack - Syntax Highlighting for Code - add table - Auto Markdown - convert Markdown to HTML - Mini Format Pack Supplementary # Credits - Stefan van den Akker (the original code for Anki 2.0) - Arthur Milchior (all the changes in the version from 2020-04-03, mainly the optional config with a GUI with the add-on Graphical form to change add-on configuration). # Versions - 2020-07-29 partially reverse change from 2020-06-15, at least sometimes keep the surrounding formatting, see issue 7. - 2020-06-18 fix latest release: rename a function everywhere ... - 2020-06-16 added editor context menu "open URL" (in browser), can be switched off/hidden in the add-on config - renamed a config option - made a context menu entry optional - yesterdays addition is optional - strip whitespace around links - 2020-06-15 try to deal with illegal characters in URL("), remember window size - 2020-04-03 optional config with a GUI with the add-on Graphical form to change add-on configuration - 2019-10-20 improve interoperability - 2019-10-15 manifest.json - 2019-04-11 added context menu entries (experimental) - 2018-11-03 initial release

I use it every now and then – it has olost some use cases for me since I discovered that when pasting in Anki *preserving* formatting, a URL becomes a hyperlink.

Useful, should be shipped with Anki by default.

Useful add-on. It would be nice if there could be a default text to display value (e.g. "Link"), if one is not entered.

I use night mode in ankidroid and the hyperlink text is very dark blue, how can I change it to light blue? In the desktop version it's light blue in the reviewer but it's still dark blue in the browser, how do i change it in the browser too?

This add-on only inserts the hyperlinks. How they are displayed depends on Anki or Ankidroid. How they are styled is a general question of styling. I don't know much about styling html - maybe try reddit.com/r/anki ?

In Anki for desktop by default you can't change how it looks in the editor (at the bottom of the browser). There's an add-on that allows to style the editor, too, but it's complicated to setup: Customize Editor Stylesheet, https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/1215991469

Legendary add-on! Oh how I've missed being able to add hyperlinks to here and to there.
2.1 has been breaking old add-ons all over the shop, but with THIS... the world is right again.

Very useful add-on. Often I need to hyperlink to external resources and this helps.

missed in 2.1 - was part of power pack - now alone

An url-button is added so when you make a new card, you can add an url in the card and make it hot-link,
idem - in an existing card - in the deks/card/browse menu/card field;
works like on the wikipedia:
click the url button and
a screen pops-up with 2 fields:
field 1 where you can add the url,
field 2 where you can add the text to be displayed related to the url in field 1, if you find the url too cumbersome.
