After downloading the file to your Chromebook, you can try double-clicking on it to see if it will be opened by AnkiDroid - I'm not sure if that works on Chromebooks. Otherwise, move the .apkg file to your AnkiDroid directory, open AnkiDroid and select 'Import' from the menu to import the .apkg file manually.

  • eh.. you realize that chromebooks arent actual computers in the traditional sense? There are some programs that are designed specifically to work on it but for the most part you’re supposed to be using webapps using the browser.. thats the whole concept of chromebooks. “normal” programs like MS Word and Photoshop don’t work on it.

    I guess what you can do is, install Anki on a normal computer, add the decks you need and sync using ankiweb (you need to make an account for that first, just google ankiweb). After that you can go to the ankiweb page and review from there. Not exactly an ideal solution though.

    If you’re adventurous, you can wipe Chrome OS and put Android on your Chromebook. It’ll basically function like an oversized smartphone (without the data plan), and Anki has a decent android app.

    Not from the desk of Eihiko. Eihiko's boss took his desk away from him.

    Eh, as long as you back up the data, it shouldn’t be risky. Both Android OS and Chrome OS are free to download, so you can always put Chrome OS back if things don’t work out.

    Do you have a regular computer to work from or is this chromebook your only device?

    Not from the desk of Eihiko. Eihiko's boss took his desk away from him.

    Doing literally zero research, I am going to ASSUME it’s a Linux based environment, because they’re Google and that’s how they roll. With that said, Linux has the magical ability that can be summed up as “if you can dream it you can do it” which is to say, anything is possible. If I had hardware that would run Chrome OS I’d investigate, but instead I just have to assume there’s a way to pop open a terminal, point it at a repository, apt-get the Linux version of Anki (they have one of those, right?), and hope to hell the autoinstaller just works. If not, you can try to do a manual install, but that’s pretty time consuming, especially in a highly streamlined and customised environment. I’ll do some research and see if I can learn anything useful.

    Also, Eihiko, can I just say – I think you’ve won this entire forum. The last like 12 posts on it are from you lol.

    EDIT: NOPE. Don’t do it. They’ve stripped it of everything and you’ll fall into dependency hell just trying to get apt to work because NO DEBIAN SUPPORT.

    Sorry, I got excited lol.

    Basically Linux is a free, super open-ended operating system, and to describe it as “highly customizable” doesn’t even come close to illustrating how much you can do with it. Because Chrome OS is just a Google version of Linux I thought you’d be able to make the Linux version of Anki work. I could have even written you a script that would do all the work for you. BUT. It requires a LOT of other things to be in the OS that just aren’t there. Think of Chrome OS like a human body with a heart and a brain, but NONE of the other organs or blood vessels (just enough to connect the two), and adding Anki would be like trying to add a stomach to this heart/brain body. You need a great many more things in order for it to work. Does that make more sense?

    To shorten that even further, basically the answer is no. I *will* investigate to see if there’s any sort of workaround but don’t get your hopes up. You’ll probably have more luck either installing Android OS or another Linux distribution like Ubuntu (I can advise you on that accordingly if you’d like).

    Sorry about the delay! I sort of ripple through the entire forum like a wave every few days. I’m currently working full time and I don’t want to say “here do this!” And then leave you for half a week with a broken Chromebook when it doesn’t work.

    If you wait til the weekend, I can do some research and run a simulation beforehand to make sure that it’ll work. I might even be able to package a version of Anki for chromeos like Justin mentioned (I’m not afraid of dependencies >:D).

    Do you know the exact name of your Chromebook?

    Not from the desk of Eihiko. Eihiko's boss took his desk away from him.

    I investigated the possibility of using a virtual Windows environment but it looks pretty hardware dependent.

    Hey, if you’re willing to tackle the dependencies, be my guest. You are a better man than I ;)

    I haz a blog

    I searched around for some less developy solutions, and on the Chrome extension store there’s one called “Anki Adder”

    You may be able to use that, plus Ankiweb as Strangeluv suggested, and be able to do all of it on your Chromebook. Here’s the link to Anki Adder:

    So with Anki Adder you can load up the decks, and then run through them using Anki Web. Kinda sucks having to use two utilities, but it seems to be the least work to set up.

    I can take a look at the Anki source code and see if it’s possible to make a Chrome extension out of that, since there’s clearly a lack of proper online usage. That’s quite a bit more development than I really have experience with, but depending on what language they’ve written Anki in, it could be very easy. What would be REALLY cool is if you could use Google Drive to store Anki decks in. I’ll try to look into that too. If anyone else out there has some dev experience, input on that would be appreciated! Let’s pimp Anki right the hell out ;)

    In the meantime, I think Anki Adder + Anki Web is your best bet. But that’s just my opinion.

    I haz a blog

    I’ve been thinking about getting a chromebook since my old XP machine is on its way out.
    The desktop version of anki is one thing thats holding me back.

    An option I’ve been considering for getting Anki (and other desktop applications I want to keep Like a good word processor)) to run on the chromebook is to make a bootable linux key and install it there.

    You would need to reboot the machine in order to use the programs on the key, but for Anki, you would only need to do that when you wanted the create new note types or do any really fancy stuff. Other than that, you can create cards using Akni Adder and review using either a mobile app or ankiweb.

    I actually don’t mind adding cards and reviewing through separate applications.
