Is your language?

Some languages *were* done, then I tried them in Studly and realized I had missed some strings.

Thanks for your contributions!!

If you’re interested in making desktop apps with a most beautiful and sexy programming language (Ruby), I encourage you to check out the code to Studly– it’s under 500 lines, fairly clear, and accomplishes a lot.


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

November 19, 2011

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:
