Pitch accent support

Huge fan of Jisho.org
One of the features missing for me is a pitch accent display. This is the main reason I install the addon "jisho-pitcher" on every browser I use ( Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/jisho-pitcher/fgnpplmalkhmcilpgbngpmdgfnodknce?hl=en-GB , Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/pitcher/ ), or use YomiChan to look up the definition.
Other dictionary projects like jiten ( https://github.com/obfusk/jiten ) also do this by default.

Unfortunately using jisho.org to also find pitch accent information becomes hard on mobile. The above mentioned addon used to be supported by firefox-android ( https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/android/addon/pitcher/ ), but an update to firefox-android's addon system made this incompatible.

So as a quality of life improvement, it would be really nice to have pitch accent information built into jisho.org itself. It doesn't have to be as fancy as jisho-pitcher, using unicode arrows like jiten ( ねꜜこ , たꜛくわえꜜる )or simply the numbers notation would suffice.

You could use https://jotoba.com/ for that. It's kinda like Jisho but for multiple languages and also has pitch accents

Would be a nice to have, but there is the Wanikani audio for most words that are in the pitch dictionary so you can hear the actual pronunciation.
