Anki-Connect gives you an API to Anki. I’ve used it to create flash cards for scientific articles, populating journal information by fetching bibliographic data from fatcat.

The “anki” package in Nixpkgs is pretty outdated, since Anki is apparently pretty hard to build correctly. Use “anki-bin” instead for a more recent Anki version. It looks like the Nixpkg version is fairly recent again.


Exported .apkg decks use SQLite. It seems like note types (card templates) might be stored in the col table (“collection”?) in the models column.
