A downloadable Flashcard App for Windows

This program is designed to help you learn simple facts a la flashcards.


I wanted something simple to use and simple to expand and I didn't want to spend too much time developing it. As a result, this is very "Function over Form."


To use the program you must first put something into the Resources folder.  This is where all the flashcards are drawn from. If you just want an example, I've included a premade Resources folder for the language toki pona, a small, contructed langague.

If you answer incorrectly, you will see that question more often. If you answer correctly, you will see that question less often. Your results are saved between uses. To erase your saved progress, simply delete the save file.



Making your own Resources Folder

The program is designed so that anyone can add their own flashcards with very little effort by putting files into the Resources folder, next to the executable.

The program takes the file name as a question and the contents of the file as an answer, putting the question on one side of a virtual flashcard and the answer on the other.

If you put your files in subfolders in the Resources directory, it groups them together as a single "lesson". You will only see questions from one lesson at a time. If there are any loose files in the Resources folder, they will be treated as the first lesson. Otherwise it goes through all the subfolders alphabetically.

eg:

Resources/firstQuestion.txt will be asked first,

Resources/AAA/firstQuestion.txt will be asked next and...

Resources/FirstLesson/firstQuestion.txt will be asked last.

As you can see, dividing questions into lessons lets you use the same question (file name) multiple times but have a different answer.





The current file types supported are:

wav, png, txt

If you have a file type you want supported, drop me a comment and I'll see what I can do.
