Projects / FlashBack


FlashBack is a flashcard scheduler based on a card review method described by Sebastian Leitner. It allows one to create and review simple (text only) flash cards. It supports Unicode and complex scripts (via Pango). A simple, tab-separated cardfile format is used allowing for editing the cards with a text editor (e.g., if you can't enter certain script in GTK+).

      •  08 Jul 2005 13:59

        Release Notes: This release fixes a "messing up sorting after study" bug and minor cosmetic problems (using the green brain icon for the main window and tray area). It defaults to using egg.trayicon (needs gnome-python2-libegg on Fedora Core 4). The installer will build the private (flash.trayicon) module only if it can't find the official one.

          Release Notes: The tray icon functionality is now optional. Word wrap in study view and scrolling (if necessary) have been added. New markup shortcuts (in addition to the pango tags): \n, //italic//, *bold*, {blue}, and |brown|. Minor bugfixes and features.

          •  25 Jun 2005 09:47

            Release Notes: The license was changed to the GPL. A FreeDesktop (GNOME, KDE, and XFCE) tray icon was provided with a menu of the expiration status of "watched" card files. Minor UI improvements and bugfixes were made.
