Made a script and wanted to share the idea with everyone.

So I've been learning Japanese on the side for a little more than a year now and am at the point where vocab is a big part.

I have this personal Japanese word list that I wrote, but I wanted to convert it over to an Anki deck, so I made a script that utilized Jisho to do just that :)

Wow! That looks really cool. Great use of the API! :)

Couldn't you just download an offline copy of edict/jmdict and use that instead of searching it via jisho?

@blutorange The tricky thing is sorting jmdict results to get the most likely hit first.

Thanks Kimtaro!

And blutorange, I could have but as Kimtaro pointed out, the order that words are listed isn't by what I meant most likely (which was a huge helper!)

Hey, just a question Kimtaro, any possibility that we can get a feature to create a personal word-list? And, I know it's asking for a lot, but being able to export that to an Anki deck would mean the world to me (and I'm sure many others!)

+1, also maybe export to CSV, which can be imported into Quizlet (and probably other sites/apps too).

Word lists with export to Anki/CSV is a feature I've been wanting to add for a long time. It's just one of those larger features that kept being pushed back. I'll get to it though, one day :)

Hi. Maybe someone is interested. I created command line for creating anki packages, that integrates with jisho api and forvo for audio files. Still docs are a bit of a mess but maybe someone will find it useful. Here is a link https://github.com/adamkozuch/jisho-anki
