Installing Anki add-ons is not too bad, but it's slightly different between versions 2.0.x and 2.1.x.
For background, I started here with this Low Key Anki guide and wanted to install one of the provided plugins (ResetEZ.py) but it didn't work out of the box.
Add-ons, in OS X, are found in
$HOME/Library/Application Support/Anki2/addons21. Make a directory, I named mine
resetez. Inside, add a file named
__init__.py. Take the contents of
ResetEZ.py found on the link above (maybe a page or two ahead) and put it as the contents of
__init__.py. Read the instructions and configure. Restart Anki and you should see a new menu item under Tools!
As software gets more and more integrated into our lives, the industrialization of its crafting process becomes inevitable. But the over-generalization of software engineering can be crushing the creative side of programming.
