Word basket added to Chinese Chrome Extension
A lot of people were asking for a way to collect words they want to especially learn, you now can with the latest version of the extension. It should go live in about 30 minutes after Google has approved the update (0.9997).
You can listen to the character by clicking on it. If simplified is turned on it will be in a standard Mandarin accent if traditional is turned on then it will be a Taiwanese accent.
thanks! I just realised I messed up the colours of it before launch; I have fixed it now. It should be readable when Google updates!
Could you check for me that the word basket and meanings are still working I found a bug on my laptop, I'm not sure if it affects all computers!
No prob! Okay, I just updated it to 0.9997.1 but I'm still experiencing the same issue. I forced update extensions and restarted my browser.
Edit #1: I think it might actually be working correctly. I just realized all the vocab in my word basket is from skills you haven't converted to Traditional Chinese characters yet. Sorry for the scare! Great work! :D
Edit #2: I added a character from earlier in the tree and that shows up properly in the word basket!
I have the luxury of not having to go through the normal bureaucracy that I do at work, like waiting for a sprint (an agreed set of changes) to be finished by the developers working under me before something goes live.
Everything I do in the plug-in is reverse-engineering, I'm using the user interface as a source of data, rather than something they probably use like Redux. So I'm using poor development practices (I don't have any other choice) but it allows me to hack things in quickly :)
It is the second time I try this app after months and I am sad to report it still doesn't completely work for me. I have the traditional character option , the "turtle button" and the definitions of the words (which are not always correct) but the word busket button and the strenghthen skills button do not appear at my homepage.
The add-on hasn't been updated since February, which was before duolingo's introduction of crown-levels. I think that broke some features (access to word basked, switching to traditional characters in multiple choice questions or each skill's 'tips and notes' page). You can try to contact the developer via his email you can find on the add-on's store page and ask him if he's willing to update it.
