karatasi is a learning program based on flip cards. Each card has a front view with a question, and a back view with the answer. The cards are grouped into categories. Each category has its cards sorted alphabetically.

A card consists of 6 data fields. For every single category you may configure a style sheet. It defines which data fields appear in the question and which in the answer, and which is the data field that determines the sorting order of the cards in this category.

karatasi supports the creation of several databases. These databases are maintained separately. It is possible to move a card inside a database to another category, but not into a different database.

Recommended Work Flow

We recommend the following work flow with karatasi:

daily procedure:
perform daily test
drill cards

The number of committed cards should be restricted to an amount which allows you to master your daily test and your daily drill well.
