Anki is an SRS (Spaced Repetition System), a program which allows you to create, manage and review flashcards. Anki is very flexible and also allows the creation of templates. Android and iOS apps are available and synchronization between devices is supported.


Install the anki package.

For the development version, install the anki-gitAUR package.

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.
