Thank you for the amazing application that has changed my learning forever.
I am trying to manipulate rich text files with some of the methods exposed in the Python package
I can successfully wire up my collection and create new notes programmatically. I’m hitting a roadblock in how Anki sees the RTF. For example, here’s a definition as viewed my rich text editor.
If I manually use copy and paste with formatting from my text editor and into an Anki note, it is rendered correctly:
But when I put the same clipboard data into a python string and programmatically feed it into the note, this is what the note looks like:
I’ve tried to read the source code for how Anki parses formatting but cannot find the specific method it is using to interpret the RTF stored from my clipboard in Figure 1 that removes all the RTF formatting codes and replaces it with HTML tags shown in Figure 2 when I manually paste in the editor.
Is there a library or method that I can call that parses the RTF string as shown in Figure 3 and produces the HTML in Figure 2? Or in other words, how does Anki strip RTF codes and make the HTML representation?
Thank you for reading and considering my question.
