I just switched to the 2.1 scheduler beta. Prior to the switch, everything seemed to work smoothly, but now I get the following error message with this addon enabled (disclaimer: I’m still a relative novice, I have no idea what this all means)

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

This should be an error in the add-on “Advanced Browser”: Check the third line from the bottom.

Check your add-ons for updates. If this doesn’t help you could disable “Advanced Browser”. After updating or disabling you must restart Anki.

Personally I would use the latest Anki version 2.1.26 which allows you to use the latest version of “Advanced Browser”.

Interesting. If I disable “Advanced Browser” and enable “When is next learning card due today due” I still get the error message. When I enable “Advanced Browser” and disable this add-on, the issue goes away.

I see what you mean about the error message implicating Advanced Browser, though, so I’m not sure what’s wrong. The reason I posted it here was because the error message seems dependent on whether or not I have this add-on enabled, sorry if I am missing something!

I checked for updates and none are available. I will consider using the latest Anki version, I’d just avoided it because I’m not sure all the add-ons I use support it

Have you restarted after this before you checked out my add-on.

I have one database query in my add-on, see here and this query is setup just as described in the add-on creation guide, see here. I’m pretty sure that the function I modify is only called once the database has been loaded so that “db” is should never be None.

You could change my add-on so and replace in __init__.py of my add-on:

all_learning = aqt.mw.col.db.all(sqlstring)

with

try:
    all_learning = aqt.mw.col.db.all(sqlstring)
except:
    return

Does this help?

 

Advanced Browser is a great. But as far as I see it has to perform all kinds of “black magic” to workaround limitations from Anki. So it’s more likely that the AB causes the problem in my view. But AB is much more useful than my add-on. Just disable my add-on or delete it and if you are still interested in it after upgrading to a more recent anki version enable or reinstall it.

Not a coding person (apologies), but I changed it and got this error message:

It’s not a huge deal for me if I can’t get it to work. Anyways, thank you for your help and for the add-on!

I guess I could have made it more clear what I want you to do. Your problem is that you don’t have enough spaces before the try line. If this code solves the problem for you I could upload it for everyone to ankiweb. But before I do this it would be nice to have confirmation that it actually solves a problem. So you would really help.

I mean to change this

def whenIsNextLrnDue(sqlstring, append_relative):
    all_learning = aqt.mw.col.db.all(sqlstring)
    if not all_learning:
        return

to this

def whenIsNextLrnDue(sqlstring, append_relative):
    try:
        all_learning = aqt.mw.col.db.all(sqlstring)
    except:
        return
    if not all_learning:
        return

It’s important that the lines are properly indented. Maybe copy and paste this code from here?

In my code I indent with spaces so you must also use spaces. Some people like to indent with “tab” which is also fine in general. But in python3 you may not mix tabs and spaces for indenting.

Hi I recently downloaded your add-on for version 2.1.26.
At first it worked fine, but suddenly showed an error message like the following

After I disable the add-on everything else seems to work perfectly fine.
I previously was experimenting with different versions of Anki (2.1.26 and 2.1.36).
The time I had the add-on work fine was when I had both versions installed. I had some unexpected crashes and I believe they occurred due to some problems from alternating between multiple versions. I don’t know how that info would help in any way, but seemed best to tell you everything.

@mallard : Thanks for reporting this. At the moment I’m quite busy and the upcoming anki 2.1.41 will break some of my other add-ons which I need to fix first so it’ll take some time until I can look at this.
