I wanted a no nonsense tool to help memorize whatever I wanted to learn. I've always like flashcards, especially for studying languages, but didn't like the hassle of making them or carrying them around. I also typically prefer the simplicity of the command line over GUIs.
npm install -g vocabcli
To start or switch to a subject:
vocab --learn <subject>
To add/delete/edit/search a term/definition
vocab --add <term>vocab --delete <term>vocab --edit <term>vocab --query <term>
To list all available subjects
To review your entries
vocab reviewvocab review --tag <tagname>vocab review --reverse --fullScreen
To quiz yourself
vocab quizvocab quiz --tag <tagname>vocab quiz --reverse --fullScreen
The --reverse option switches to show the 'definition' first, as opposed to the default of 'term' first, while the --fullScreen option will clear the terminal with each new entry is presented.
