A simple Katakana (Japanese syllabary) trainer for SailfishOS containing four test modes:

  • Normal test: You get a Katakana and have to choose the correct transcription
  • Reverse test: You get a transcription and have to choose the correct Katakana
  • Free test: You get a  Katakana and have to type in the correct transcription
  • Free reverse test: You get a transcription and have to write the correct Katakana. For now you have to decide yourself whether you answered a question correctly

Source code is now avaiable at https://github.com/Top-Ranger/harbour-katakana

The Hiragana version can be found here

Hi, I am trying to create a simmilar app for Hangul and I would like to study your app. I am looking at the qml files and you are using a class called "Testclass" but I cannot find it, I suppose you used c++ for that, is that right? Is there a way I could see that for better study?

 

Thank you anyway, I really like both your apps

The source code is now avaiable at https://github.com/Top-Ranger/harbour-katakana

The "Testclass" is just a small c++ class which chooses random questions. Please note that all c++-classes you want to use in qml have to be registered - this is happening in harbour-katakana.cpp (qmlRegisterType<Testclass>("harbour.katakana.Testclass", 1, 0, "Testclass");).

If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask them.

Thanks a lot, that is very helpful.

Also thank you for the information on the cpp - qml connection, I was looking for that a while ago and couldn't find it (until I find it on tinyedit's source yesterday but thanks anyway, you are VERY helpful).
