Anki Template Tester

Overview over my Anki add-ons

Small tool to preview templates for the spaced repetition flashcard program Anki. When writing templatex, the built in template editor of Anki can become quite cumbersome. On the other hand one cannot just preview the card templates in the webbrowser due to the Anki specific elements (filling of the field values, conditional statements).

This small script takes a template (and a CSS style sheet) together with a file which contains some exemplary field values and gives back a HTML file which can be properly viewed in the browser.
