AnkiWikiPopup Note due to lack of time, this addon is no longer been updated. Feel free to get in contact to take over maintaining this project so that it works in future versions, for fork it and raise a pull request - https://github.com/cfculhane/AnkiPopupWikipedia Anki 2.1 addon to display Wikipedia page previews inside of Anki. Shows a popup of the Mobile Wikipedia page / Extract for the selected text. In order to avoid conflicts with the Popup Dictionary addon, this addon only supports keyboard shortcuts (Control-Shift-W) for now. Currently it still clashes with Popup Dictionary, this will be fixed soon! Modes: Mobile (default) Extract (shorter, faster to load) Features This is currently in beta stage - things will almost certainly break! Please submit a bug report if it does.

Hi this is not working for me, I understand this is only a beta version but i was wondering if there is anything to do with the fact I am using dark mode.

Love this. I love that it works for other languages too!
Thanks again!

This deserves more love. So much googling time can be saved now. It's so convenient. Thanks for making this.

Sometimes it bugs out onto the side of the screen. A quick restart solves this problem. Other than that, extremely useful.

não funciona com wiki no Brasil

Thanks! This seems like a useful add-on. I'm confused about one thing, though. How do I make it display the shorter extract?

night mode problem

Very nice!

Logged in to leave a feedback. Great stuff man, you rock

By the way, what determines that the window automatically closes? Sometimes I'm trying to copy a text from the popup and it disappears
on 1584883237
Really good! but please make it compatible with Pop-up dictionary. I use both, and would for both to work together!
on 1583924976
Hoping this add-on picks up traction. Thank you for your effort
on 1583811724
Love it! Only thing is that it crashes when I search two words together like "separation anxiety."

Great idea, very useful, and awesome. Just a few things:
(1) Some searches "don't find anything" even though they exist (e.g. I think "Follicular Lymphoma" is a current example that has a whole Wiki page on the exact title but doesn't show when with this addon for me)
(2) Clicking outside the box does not currently close the window for me, but at least clicking the "x" at the top right of the pop-up does close it
(3) When both this and Pop Up Dictionary are enabled, Pop Up Dictionary no longer works for me (either with clicking or with the keyboard shortcut)
(4) I want to make the pop-up window bigger (so the text is also bigger as it looks small on my screen) - I was able to do this with Pop Up Dictionary, but could not find the correct or working settings to do this with this addon

If it helps, I am using Anki Version 2.1.20 on Linux (Debian). I do have nightmode enabled on it, but I am not using the nightmode addon, just the inherent nightmode that comes as an option from this Anki Version.

Thank you!

Nice, has a lot of room for improvement though.

please make this work with popup dictionary T_T
on 1578749223
Great! Do you think it would be possible to do the same with another language?
on 1578669262
Awesome addon! Only minor issue: it doesn't work on some characters ("é", "è", "ê", etc...).

Would be great if we could simply right click on text and select "Wikipedia" in the popup window under "Copy".
on 1578507807
A wonderful add-on that should be built right into anki itself :)
