Anki is a spaced repetition system (SRS), a program which allows you to create, manage and review flashcards. Anki is very flexible and also allows the creation of templates. Apps for Android and iOS as well as a web interface can be used to interact with the user's flashcard database. Anki supports addons, written in python.

Installation

Install the anki package. Or, for the development version, install the anki-gitAUR package.

By default, cards are synchronized using anki's web server, but you can use your own anki-sync-serverAUR.

Warning: Due to the deprecation of QtWebKit for Qt 4, the anki package uses an unstable 2.1 beta build.

Flashcards

Flashcards can be obtained by:

  • Creating them inside Anki, organized in decks and possibly tagged. Cards can contain audio, pictures and even TeX formulas;
  • Downloading them, grouped in an existing shared deck (e.g. top 1000 words in a language);
  • Generating them as a csv file that will be imported in Anki.

Older versions

If you prefer to use version 1.2, install the anki12AUR package, or if you prefer to use version 2.0, install the anki20-binAUR package.

Warning: Versions before 2.1 use QtWebKit for Qt 4, which is considered insecure.

Tips and tricks

Kanji stroke support

Install the kanjistrokeorders-ttfAUR package if you want to display kanji stroke orders in Anki. You have to select this font inside Anki in your deck properties after installation.

Asian language support

Install the mecab-ipadicAUR package and the kakasi package.

Launch Anki, and inside Anki use File > Download > Shared Plugin to download and install the "Japanese Support" plugin, restart.

After creating a new deck, you need to select "Japanese" as the deck model in "deck properties" to have Japanese support. Make sure that the Japanese Support plugin is installed, otherwise you cannot select "Japanese" as the model.
