Conditionally format Anki cards based on field content

Anki allows conditoinal formatting based on whether or not fields are empty, but youโ€™ll need to use a bit of code for conditional formatting in Anki based on field content. Luckily, itโ€™s not that hard, and using this trick you can conditionally display text as well. I use it to color-code my German flashcards by noun gender without having to do everything by hand.

About

This isn't another polyglot blog โ€” it's a monoglot blog! Well, it used to be. At this point, I'm probably somewhere around a 1.75-glot, maybe a 1.80-glot on a good day. This site is all about learning to learn languages, written through the lense of my experience overcoming the intermediate plateau with German and starting from scratch with Italian as a self-taught former monoglot. If you're teaching yourself a language, this is for you!
