This add-on mainly works as a template filter to show random example sentences for vocabulary each time a card is viewed. You just have to put a filter like this in your card template: {{incontext:Front}} Here, the add-on will show a random English example sentence containing the word in the Front field. You can specify the language using the lang option: {{incontext lang=en:Front}} Currently supported values are: The default is en. Sentences are fetched from multiple sources such as https://www.lexico.com/ (for English) and https://sozluk.gov.tr (for Turkish). You can show sentences from only a certain source by using the provider option, like this: {{incontext lang=en provider=lexico:Front}} For a list of supported sources, see the providers folder. The identifier of each provider is defined by a name variable inside each provider class. A list of available providers is also shown in the interface. More sites and languages will be added in the future. Contributions are welcome! Importing Tatoeba databases To make Tatoeba databases available for use with the add-on, please see this doc. Interface The add-on has an experimental graphical interface to manage sentences that can be accessed from Tools > InContext. Demo Download this deck for a demo of the add-on: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Era5ksSa59xjB3ZbVQsdoTbQEigzh6Bi/view?usp=sharing Storage In the first review of a card that has the InContext filter, sentences will be fetched from the language providers and saved in the user_files/sentences.db file. Subsequent reviews will use those saved sentences (if any) and avoid making more requests to the providers. You can anyway update saved sentences manually from the GUI.
