Deleting lingq to import to anki
i thought about doing what you’re doing but instead I’m manually copying and pasting into a different SRS app called flash cards deluxe. It’s similar to anti but is mobile only so it’s a bit easier to well add cards on my iPhone or iPad. If you come up with an easy way to export stuff to Anki I’d be interested.
Oh so anki is quite easy to export to but as a developer myself I feel bad for continuing to hammer the server by accumulating all the lingq here that I keep exporting when I only need a diff of new ones.
They have the anki deck export option but honestly I don't like that way that works.
If you export a CSV then you can import to anki and you select which columns map to which fields of a preexisting anki card definition. I just choose the fields so they map to the card style I have been using for chinese study previously. I can choose to ignore new cards that have the same primary field(vocab item in question) so it doesn't re-add them. This means I can keep exporting everytime and it works fine. Since I can creating anki fields on my card I love that I can preserve the original word context all the way through to anki.
I have an additional step of bulk updating the definitions because I like other dictionaries better but that is mostly just my preference.
