  • LearnThisRepo.com - Learn 300+ open source libraries for free using AI.
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • WorkOS - The modern API for authentication & user identity.
  • Textractor

    Extracts text from video games and visual novels. Highly extensible.

    Best case scenario, you're playing a game or using Bookwalker. Often, especially if the game is a visual novel (play more voiced visual novels! They're great for learning! Avoid the ones on Steam!), you can use a program called Textractor to extract the text out automatically to make lookups easy. I use Clipboard Inserter with this site for a really nice setup that counts characters and time as you read.

  • mpvacious

    Adds mpv keybindings to create Anki cards from movies and TV shows.

    Also works nice in combination with mpv and mpvacious if you are watching videos with subs and want cards with audio/pictures. Sometimes subs are out of sync, but mpv keyboard shortcuts allow you to retime the subs easily for one-time viewing. It also supports Youtube videos, so works even then, as long as the videos have subs.
