Quilt importer not working on Mac

I have been ignoring Anki about updating to the latest format, but was pretty much forced to as the old app was lagging. Now the quizlet importer doesn’t work. Can anyone help me? I heard python or home-brew can help and am willing to download them if necessary. Here is what shows up when trying to upload cards:

An error occurred. Please start Anki while holding down the shift key, which will temporarily disable the add-ons you have installed.

If the issue only occurs when add-ons are enabled, please use the Tools > Add-ons menu item to disable some add-ons and restart Anki, repeating until you discover the add-on that is causing the problem.

When you’ve discovered the add-on that is causing the problem, please report the issue on the [add-on support site](

Ok so it turns out individual sets do work, but not folders. @kelciour can you help?

Try these 2 versions:

Since sets do work, another option is to use the add-on from AnkiWeb. At first, run the following code in the DevTools Console on the Quizlet page with folders to print out sets’ urls, copy everything between -------- to the clipboard and paste in the add-on to import them all at once.


txt = '';
document.querySelector('.FolderPageSetsView').querySelectorAll('.UISetCard').forEach(c => {
    txt += c.querySelector('.UILink').getAttribute('href') + '\n' }
