  • trrc, a command-line program to create Anki cards using AnkiConnect API.

    FYI, you may be interested to know there are other alternatives. I made apy, which is a cli tool in a similar spirit to yours, except it does not rely on AnkiConnect. I've also written a section in the README where I list other similar tools.
  • anki.nvim - plugin for creating and adding Anki cards directly from Neovim
    5 projects | /r/neovim | 17 Nov 2022
    I've written a CLI to do similar things. You can find it here: it's called apy. I combine it with some simple Vim macros and Markdown syntax, and I think I end up with a very efficient and good workflow for adding and modifying/editing cards (I often find I want to adjust the wording or content of a card after some time). I've specifically avoided the AnkiConnect API, so apy works without having Anki Desktop open.

    That's reasonable. I use Vim with apy, of course, but my workflow is CLI centerred: I run the apy commands in the terminal, but for editing and adding cards, I use Vim. I believe I've described my workflow... ah, yes, here:

    Since you use Vim and Anki, you may also be interested in apy. I made it to simplify creating and editing Anki cards. It relies on Markdown and makes it easy to add code snippets in questions and answers.
  • flashcards.nvim: Neovim plugin for creating and studying flashcards
    4 projects | /r/neovim | 21 Sep 2022
    I've made apy to make it easier for people who like to work in a terminal and with Vim/neovim to make and maintain flashcards in Anki. I combine it with some utility functions within neovim.
  • Nvimanki - Neovim plugin
    2 projects | /r/Anki | 18 Jun 2022
    Cool! I'm an avid user of neovim and Anki, and I did something similar. I created apy. It skips the Connect-plugin and manipulates the Anki database directly through the Python APIs, and it allows to modify existing cards and to add new cards by use of a simple Markdown like syntax. I wrote a little bit of how I use Vim/neovim together with apy here.

    There is also apy[1] which needs an Anki installation but at least doesn't actually run the Anki process.


  • anktui - add notes to anki from the terminal
    3 projects | /r/commandline | 21 Nov 2021
    It does not yet, it is missing way to many features, and also it requires anki to be open. I've never tried it, but someone in the comments mentioned apy which seems to do that :)
