This add-on is a re-upload of the Fastbar add-on that was removed by it's author. u/ijgnord helped me make it look much nicer on nightmode for MacOS (this is supported by both the nightmode add-on and the nightmode built-in to anki in 2.1.20beta+) As I do not have any coding skills, this add-on is shared as is and I will not be able to provide support. Normal mode: Compact mode: Problems, Bugs, Errors, Improvements If you find a serious bug, please submit it on Github or email us at ankingmed@gmail.com.

This add on is having problems with the V3 scheduler when I try to Buried or Unburied a card!, the supend option has no issues at all.

this is the error:

An error occurred. Please start Anki while holding down the shift key, which will temporarily disable the add-ons you have installed.
If the issue only occurs when add-ons are enabled, please use the Tools > Add-ons menu item to disable some add-ons and restart Anki, repeating until you discover the add-on that is causing the problem.
When you've discovered the add-on that is causing the problem, please report the issue on the add-on support site.

Thanks for this! I'll look into it.

Update: I think we found a fix! Make a Github Issue or send me an email if it's still not working

Thanks for your work. A minor issue though: f I enable either of the two below, latex shortcuts won’t work in 2.1.46 (debian buster):

Extended Tag AddEdit Dialog
Fastbar - with nightmode support

I have posted about this in the Anki forums in case that's the proper place.
on 1628002430
Great, thanks a lot!
on 1625815245
OK, its working :) Can't seem to figure out how to change from compact mode to full mode though. Many shortcuts missing in mine

EDIT: everything is working perfectly. great add-on. must have!
Comment from author before post was edited
This app is working perfectly fine on 2.1.44 and 2.1.45beta for me. Does the browser not open when this is the only add-on you have installed? It's likely a different add-on. Feel free to email me at ankingmed@gmail.com to troubleshoot so we can figure this out for you and you can switch this to a like :)

UPDATE: Glad it's working! To switch from compact to full mode you just go to the config of the add-on. If you have other issues, please let me know via github. It's far more useful than leaving a dislike on here and we can have an actual back and forth conversion and include other's help

I realy like it, but after i updated to 2.1.41 the BetterSearch Button was in the Fastbar, i want it seperated next to the SearchBar... please help :(
Comment from author
Unfortunately the new UI doesn't allow for that and that's why we put it in the fastbar (u/ijgnord who wrote BetterSearch was kind enough to do that).

Useful add
on 1617286485
Should be implemented in Anki
Must have add-on

Aesthetically pleasant. Reminds me of Calibre.
on 1614588195
It's supports the latest version, thanks!

It's nice to have options to remove/re-arrange the icons or buttons.

very useful !

amazin addon, especially appreciated for the ability to toggle sidebar in "Browse" view
on 1607536133
I was simply looking for an add which would give me the night mode, but the two other were either too old for my anki's version or too complicated to use.
Your one is very simple, and I am very grateful to you ! This is exactly what I wanted !
Sorry if I have made some mistakes, I'm actually french.
Merci beaucoup !

Great THX!

On the contrary how do I get rid of this app's night mode without changing my computer's settings?
on 1597449550

Its in the preferences settings now :)

If you guys can allow us to customize it (and remove the white bar that's on the right) it would be PERFECT.

Thanks- I've been loving it so far. highly recommend.

ur the GOAT once again
on 1586746767
So useful. This should be built into Anki natively.
on 1583863653
Adding support for nightmode made this one of my favorite add ons
on 1583812117
Night mode just looks that much better.

Really nifty way to get some of the good parts of 2.0's interface back!
on 1583787841
Awesome addon!

It's useful for me!Thanks!

Thanks for your work.
I would like to recommend to put the titles in more than one line, as they might become too long due to translation into other languages.

Just pushed an update with this feature for you!

I have been wanting this since fastbar came out, although there is still a small section of the fastbar in the right corner that is not styled
Comment from author
Unfortunately, it would take quite a bit more coding to fix that portion. The good news is on the 2.1.20 update, it is no longer an issue! You can try updating to the beta if you want to try now
