The source code should work on all PyGTK platforms. Personally I develop
with Eclipse + PyDev + PyLint (the current PyLint residual warnings are
here to stay).

The colon and semicolon format of the flashcard files should be as
flexible as possible and the application should be able to deal with
most combinations or omissions in a flexible way. the example with kanji
is very extensive, most of the flashcards will be represented in a more
simple way.

Here you can find the source:
download the opk and extract the source code as mentioned

I have a 0.4 version with some improvements but I always have the
problem with that I can only upload when I create a new
package, not when I edit one. Very annoying. I will mail it to the
maintainer and he will upload it for me. That is the only way. I will do
that after Easter. If someone has improvements, please email them.

If you have an flashcard collection that can be packaged with it, please
let me know.
