Anki <-> Org
This post is about how to sync notes between Org and Anki manually.
Background: In an effort to consolidate all my notes into *.org files, I need to deal with the old Anki decks.
Luckily, Anki supports exporting notes into plaintext files.
If you want to import the same file, you need an add-on to generate the Node ID for each note.
Make sure Node ID field is added in the deck setup:
Sample exported txt file:
9162f8c6-4942-11ec-8423-acde48001122 front 1 updated back 1 updated 98699bac-4942-11ec-8423-acde48001122 front 2 updated back 2 updated
With this plaintext file, you can use whatever you are comfortable to convert them into your org format.
For example, if you are using Org-Roam, the first note can be converted to:
:PROPERTIES: :ID: 9162f8c6-4942-11ec-8423-acde48001122 :END: #+title: front 1 updated * Front front 1 updated * Back back 1 updated
After you are done editing on org, it is a matter of converting them back to the plaintext files and importing them into Anki again:
In this way, you can manually sync notes between Org and Anki.
