I am working on an addon, for anki, which requires me to import a new deck using its python API. I found the function called test_apkg (anki/test_importing.py at 627f910635893f8205f7004572ba2ac7f3d987b8 · ankitects/anki · GitHub)
which seems to have parts which do that. I tried implementing that below, I am getting no errors, however the deck does not get imported. How do I make my testFunction() import a deck for anki?
from aqt import mw from aqt.utils import showInfo, qconnect from aqt.qt import * from anki.importing import * import os from anki.collection import Collection as aopen #from anki.pylib.tests.shared import getEmptyCol from .shared import getEmptyCol def testFunction() -> None: file = "flashcards.apkg" col = getEmptyCol() apkg = r"path_to_file/flashcards.apkg" imp = AnkiPackageImporter(col, apkg) imp.run() # create a new menu item, "test" action = QAction("Import", mw) # set it to call testFunction when it's clicked qconnect(action.triggered, testFunction) # and add it to the tools menu mw.form.menuTools.addAction(action)
