Doing in Anki what AnkiConnect cannot do

Project description

This project is deprecated. Please see ankisync2.


PyPI version PyPI license

Doing what AnkiConnect cannot do, including

  • Creating new *.apkg
  • Creating new note type / model
  • Upserting notes
  • Setting next review
  • Setting card statistics
  • Note ids to Card ids

But of course, this is very unsafe compared to pure AnkiConnect. I will not hold liability to damage it may cost.


Please close your Anki application first before doing this!

from ankisync.anki import Anki
with Anki() as a:
        fields=['field_a', 'field_b', 'field_c'],
            'Forward': (QUESTION1, ANSWER1),
            'Reverse': (QUESTION2, ANSWER2)

Most of the other API's are similar to AnkiConnect, but _by_id()'s are preferred.

Creating a new *.apkg is also possible.

from ankisync.apkg import Apkg
with Apkg('bar.apkg') as a:
    model_id = a.init(
            fields=['field_a', 'field_b', 'field_c'],
                'Forward': (QUESTION1, ANSWER1),
                'Reverse': (QUESTION2, ANSWER2)
        'modelName': 'foo',
        'deckId': 1,  # "Default" deck
        'fields': {
            'field_a': 'aaaaa',
            'field_b': 123  # Numbers will be converted to string.

For the example of how I use it in action, see


pip install ankisync


  • What features outside AnkiConnect (or inside) do you want? I will try to implement it.
  • Help me understand the documentations, AnkiDroid Wiki, and Anki decks collaboration Wiki
  • Please help me implement the NotImplemented methods.


  • This is the successor to AnkiTools. I will not update it anymore.
