Hi everybody. We moved to a new server, which means I can - after 3 years - finally start making changes. Thanks again to everyone who pointed out my embarrassing mistakes and boners. It's going to take a year for me to correct them all, but the good news is - your forum comments WERE NOT IN VAIN, HOMIES. Also, Henri, the programmer, is going to improve the search functionality. Hopefully we will continue to add even more bells and whistles to the site.
On a related note:
I want to make an official KD Anki deck: well-formatted, easy to read, and full of all the information!
I am looking for coders to write a script which would automatically generate Anki cards by copying each kanji's data from cells in the KD database into the analagous cells in the Anki database. Smart people tell me it's not a difficult script to write IF you know the languages of the databases.
Anki - according to their documentation page - is written in Python, but their database is in SQLite. Whatever that is.
The KD database is written in plain old SQL.
Here's the URL of the Anki documentation page - so you can see for yourself what languages you'd need to know in order to do this; http://ankisrs.net/docs/addons.html#the-database
I'd be willing to pay money for this job. It's a one-time thing, not a regular x-hours-a-week gig.
If you don't code SQL but know someone who DOES, please tell them! And contact me at; somewhatcurious (at) hotmail (dot) com
And thanks again for using KD.
