  1. Offline version

    Hi Niel!

    How easy would it be to make a version of hanzicraft that can be used offline? I do most of my Chinese studying on the train (3 hours every day) where I don't have internet access. If I could somehow download the search page and whatever materials, that would be amazing. I don't know how easy that is to incorporate, but I appreciate your consideration.

    Cheers!

  2. Pinyin tones without numbers

    Hello, I know that it us very common to write tones in Pinyin with numbers like "zi3" but I do belong to that kind of people who really have problems with this kind of writing the tones.

    It would be much easier for me to read the Pinyin with stresses instead of numbers.

    Is that hard to realize?

  4. List by Frequency

    Hi it would be VERY useful to be able to have a list by Frequency. I want to study characters by how frequent they are.

  5. Your program is GENIUS but a suggestion!

    First, I like to thank you for this program and it was EXACTLY what I was looking for. I found you through "Hacking Chinese" and I am a Student at ChinesePod.

    May I suggest an "Add to FlashCards" Deck that corresponds with Anki with Sound?

    As a beginning learner to the Chinese/Mandarin Language I find it much easier to study and learn the building blocks, the Radicals but other that the 100 most commonly used Radicals Flashcards that I am using from a download at "Hacking Chinese." There are NONE!

    It would be so totally perfect if you had this…

  6. An API for HanziJS

    I'd love to use an AJAX service that can respond with connections shown in HanziJS. Obviously, I could set up a server with the source code on github, but I'd rather not host the entire thing just to make some Greasemonkey scripts work.

    For example, a URL like this:
    http://hanzicraft.com/api?character=熟&data=high_frequency&format=json

    might return this:
    {charachter:"熟", high_frequency:["成熟","熟","熟悉"]}

  8. Complete missing radicals/components

    There are radicals that have not been named, like the one in 发. Also, there are words with "invisible" radicals (pages that redirect to empty pages) like in the case of 才. Hope this helps and THANK YOU A LOT for creating such an useful tool (:

  9. Please incorporate a pinyin keyboard to submit new character.

    So that we can learn the new character's decomposition, Pinyin & Meaning and Pronunciation Clues.
    Thank you.

  10. Entry for 捷 missing a very high frequency word

    Depending on the corpus, 捷運 is now higher frequency than any other compound listed. In fact, 4 of the first 5 autocompletions I see on google for 捷 start with 捷運

  12. Don't automatically open new tabs when clicking on links

    Not sure if this is new behavior on Hanzicraft or was previously blocked by a Firefox plugin that stopped working recently but either way I personally find it very annoying.

    It isn't hard for a user to get a new tab on a normal hyperlink if they want it either by holding down CTRL while clicking or alternatively right-click it and select Open-New-Tab. There is essentially no value added for a user in forcing a new tab to open.

  13. Pinyin is a poor guide for pronunciation clues

    "Pronunciation clue for 辟 (pi4): The component 尸 is pronounced as 'shi1'. It has the same pinyin final."

    This is clearly not the same final. It's the same final LETTER as transcribed in pinyin, but that is all. Better would be to rely on zhuyin, where ㄕ and ㄆ
    ㄧ have distinct transcriptions. A quick hack would be to not treat pinyin ...hi as the same final as ...i

  16. 䧹 also appears in 應, but 應 is missing from the list

    http://www.hanzicraft.com/character/%E4%A7%B9

    應 is a very common character... the fact that it's not included here makes me doubt the data source.

  17. Audio & easy login

    I'm currently unable to login to my account also I think maybe adding the most common used characters with pronunciation using pinyin and zhuyin with explanation would be good along with audio to hear each character as well as how to write

  18. decent error message

    I just searched for a character that was obviously unknown (菈) but instead of a message saying "sorry, this character is not in our database" I got a computer person's error message!

  19. Change the pronunciation clue.

    Telling me that it has the same pronunciation as itself is not a clue.

  20. Characters display as blocks despite HanaZono installation

    I installed HanaMinA and HanaMinB (both appear in my Fonts folder) on Windows 7, restarted, and looked at <http://www.hanzicraft.com/character/%E3%87%A0>, but the characters still appear as blocks.

    What do I need to do?
