This page is a support thread for TidyAnkiBear(Anki addon). I uploaded it to AnkiWeb because it was requested by a user of MedicalSchoolAnki on reddit sub.

Add-on code : 906950015

[AnkiWeb] Tidy Anki Bear🐻 / RateThis

This add-on is for tidying and hiding menu bar items. If you have a lot of add-ons, this is useful.

  • All hided items will be in the “Tidy” menu.
  • Optional features are prototypes so they are not completely developed yet.(hideTidy, PutIntoSystemTray, PutIntoTools)
  • If you encounter problems, press and hold the Shift key to start Anki, then toggle off add-on.
  • Basically, “Tidy” cannot be hidden. (If you do this, you will not be able to access settings, and shortcut keys will not work.)
  • On Linux and Windows, the Tidy bear icon is displayed (I drew it). On Mac it is not shown and is text (Tidy). If you use the system tray option, the icon is shown, but this feature is still under development.

I develop game add-ons for Anki, simple fixes and customs for broken add-ons for the latest Anki(I am not related to the official Anki). If you want to support my development, you can get prototype game add-ons by becoming a Patreon. And if you become a free patreon, you can get the latest info, so please check it out👍 Patreon : Shigeyuki : Currently there are 8 content, and 10 mini game themes(AnkiArcade).

That is so neat!

Is there any chance you develop these add-ons too? :smiling_face_with_tear:

I like your that ideas so that’s in my task list. AnkiWeb’s broken add-ons are generally left for 2 years or more, so you are super lucky👍(For example, LeechToolkit was fixed by me after being broken for over a year.)

Oh, okay. I thought you were going to ignore me :sweat_smile:, so I guess I just have to wait then. Just for a heads-up, I added points 3 and 5 here as well :point_down:

Basically, the add-ons I develop quickly are features I use in learning Anki.
For example, LeechTool kit and MoreFlags I also want to use in learning, so I repaired or searched for them. Other broken add-ons are also repaired because I want to use them, they are useful.

However, I rarely use the advanced features you are requesting, because I don’t have that many Leech cards. If I develop them too hard, my Anki learning will be delayed, so they are a conflict of interest with me.

:face_with_diagonal_mouth: Are they really that difficult to develop and how much time would you estimate for you to develop those? I don’t know how one develops Python add-ons but I assume it is hours.

Regarding your Anki learning, why wouldn’t it help you that much? I mean theoretically, if it works as intended, you should be able to set the threshold as high or low as you want :sweat_smile:.This is regarding the lapse review ratio add-on.


The other add-on (interchanging learning and relearning steps) would help you save a lot of time I believe by using two (or more) different sets of learning steps I believe. Your today again count add-on already lifts some of the work off it. The only thing I am afraid of is how you’d be able to get Anki to automatically change the learning steps of the card without changing the preset. I’d like to believe this is possible. This is the only hurdle I believe.

It goes like this–> If lapse count or again count (from todays again count addon) is > e.g. 5 change the learning-relearning steps to 10m 20m 50m 2h

If <5 then 10m 1h.

You will be cutting your learning time in half for the easier cards while pushing all the necessary extra steps for the harder ones.

If you’d at least develop this add-on it would be enormous.

  • Are they really that difficult to develop?

Sure, try asking a professional programmer to do the same job with the same content, maybe you will be charged about $1000+(It’s not a joke). I am very humble, so I only charge maximum $5/month on Patreon. If you wait leisurely it will be totally Free👍

  • Regarding your Anki learning, why wouldn’t it help you that much?

Because I don’t have that many Leech cards, simply put I am not hungry. This is probably because you and I have different review methods.

I am a private hobbyist developer, not related to official Anki, so contributing to the community was not my motivation.

Are you planning to release the 2 add-ons on your Patreon? If so, when? :sweat_smile:

But you still are inadvertently contributing to the community :saluting_face:

Never, my Patreon exists to support my creative artwork, not to commission me to do exploitative work for $5. (Patrons can cheer and support me, but they cannot ask me to do personal work for them.)

So I won’t do the work if you become a patron (I’ve obviously done more than $5 work for you👍, Congratulations!I have finished this development for now), but it does raise my development priorities a bit.

You are quite enthusiastic about this issue(I fully understand about that), but you are not my patron, therefore I recognize that for now your concerns are less important than a $5 cheeseburger at McDonald’s. (Well, all worries are like that, talk to the wallet and the values will change.)

I didnt mean to offend you if you got offended. I was just asking since some developers publish more addons on their patreon. :sweat_smile:

Now I understand your point of view :+1:

Thank you, if you have any ideas, new features, or repairs, feel free to request them from me, if you want fast or exactly what you demand, please ask professional developers to do the work for you.
I don’t have deadlines because I am just a volunteer work, and I don’t care if it is accurate to your request because I create it selfishly.

IMO, perhaps you are better suited to programming your own code. For example, you have explained your theory quite a lot logically, if you put it into programming code it will work as is, thus no need to explain it. Anki mainly uses Python, which is the easiest language in the world to learn, so consider it if you are interested.

I think this is a great idea. But I barely have time as it is. I study approx. 14-15 hours daily, barely getting any sleep, and borderline suicidal…I look to these ideas as pressure relief and will latch onto them like a chimpanzee ape. But I know this isn’t your problem since I am just a random guy on the internet

That’s good, those are the best qualities for programming.
If you are an engineer and a customer offered you a job, I bet you could solve most of the bugs in a few days.

hey


I tried to restart Anki holding the shift key but the problem did not work (I will try directly to delete the addon in the file and reinstall it)

If you start Anki while holding down the Shift key, it will start with all add-ons toggled off.
(In short, vanilla Anki starts up.)
But your screen still has Add-ons enabled, so something seems to have failed.

ok tried and worked. I’ll install the addon again
inform you if addon has any more problems. thanks for the help!

Thank you, maybe the prototype feature is causing the problem, so I’ll look into it later. If you like this add-on, please Rate this👍
