(Skip to last sentence for question without context)
I recently updated to 2.1.35 (84dcaa86), from some earlier version of I believe 2.1. I am using external code to read the .anki2 file (only read) for detailed information on the cards (I haven’t found a way to distinguish between unseen and learning on the first day using only AnkiConnect) and external processing (for tracking for lessons I have).
While using this new version, if Anki is being used, it acquires a SQLite lock, so I will get an error in the external application:
“[SQLITE_BUSY] The database file is locked (database is locked)”
I am also using AnkiConnect, so I have to keep Anki running while the code is running.
All in all, what I want to ask is:
Could the code be modified to execute a SQL query “pragma journal_mode=wal” so that external programs can read the database (not write) it safely while Anki is running?
