Introducing Studly – Simple Open-Source Flashcard Software using the Leitner Spaced Repetition Model

I just added Studly to Launchpad.net.

Studly is a simple flashcard trainer using the Leitner “spaced repetition” model.

It supports unlimited card groups, fullscreen study mode, studying your cards forwards or backwards, study statistics, and CSV import and export of cards.

The README has package dependency info for Ubuntu. Please leave comments if you can provide install instructions for other distros.

I set up the project for translations, so if you’d like to help out check out:

  1. Hi! Awesome, but how do I get it to work under something else than Ubuntu? Right now, I get “/usr/lib/ruby/1.9.1/rubygems/custom_require.rb:36:in `require’: cannot load such file — cardset (LoadError)” even though cardset.rb is in the directory…

    It’s not intended to run under Ruby 1.9.1 and has nothing to do with RubyGems. Beyond that, I’m afraid I can’t offer much help, as you haven’t said what you use, and I’m mainly familiar with Ubuntu.

    Hi. In what way do you intend it to be simpler than Anki? ( http://ankisrs.net/ )

    No claim was made of Studly being simplER than anything. I wrote Studly for myself several years ago, and decided to release it. That said, Studly does appear quite a bit simpler in that it attempts fewer features and does so with less internal and user interface complexity. Studly is around 900 lines of Ruby, while Anki totals 35,000 lines of Python.
