Projects / PyJflash


PyJflash is a Japanese flashcard viewer, conversion utility, and editor. It loads over 15 different file formats, including Edict, Kanjidic, and tab-separated TXT with automatic encoding detection. It can print and save HTML with a choice between word lists, unknown words, and words that either have or haven't been displayed. Popups give meanings and readings of Kanji and unknown words with On, Kun, and English readings on separate lines. Unknown words are weighted and show up more often if wrong more than once. JLPT vocabulary and Mainichi Shimbun frequency files are included.
