works fine, does what it should do, and its very helpful

Provides context, which in effect reduces interference and this makes interleaving viable. I like that it is easy, because I don't need to edit any card templates.

Very usefull... but this addon doesnt show up when using mobile version....

Does anybody know how to put the subdeck name inside the card (instead of title) ???

Great addon! Really fundamental to me

The configuration menu does not seem to work right, though. I cannot access it from Anki 2.1 addons' window and if I try to edit the code manually (adding/removing #s) the addon stops working. Next time I open the program Anki says something like "Indentation error" wherever it is that I made the last change. The problem remains even if I undo the edit!

EDIT: The indentation error turned out to be due to a mistake of mine: I had deleted the hashtag without removing the space between the left margin and the code. Now it works fine!

Can you please post a bug report on github, so we can discuss and try to understand what should be done. https://github.com/Arthur-Milchior/anki-addons/issues It's hard to discuss here

Just what I needed, thank you so much for creating and sharing this addon. :)

Love it! One question though: Would it be possible to slightly change the colour of the card based on the deck it is in? That would be even more useful!

Can you please contact me at arthur@milchior.fr so we can discuss it ? In particular how do you expect to decide what color to use ?
Actually, this can already be done without add-on, by simply changing the javascript in the template of the card. Maybe anki's subreddit can help you

Good jobs! This is what I was looking for.

Very useful when you study several languages and sometimes forget where you are.

Does what it says! As others have pointed out, this is particularly useful if you're learning multiple languages

I rely on this addon to know which deck a card is coming from, since it is rarely obvious from the card context, and often the question sounds too random and unanswerable without this information. (e.g. if I just have a card called "dog" I don't know which language I'm supposed to translate it to)

I like this addon too.

very nice add-on. Thanks for making the installation easy and saving this add-on from fading into obscurity.

edit: I removed the word "small". I wouldn't change anything in this add-on.

Would you want a bigger add-on ? I don't really know what someone may want to add to this add-on. I don't use it myself, I only uploaded it because someone did request it.
