[Userscript] Memrise all typing


(Cooljingle) #1

Thought I’d create a new forum thread for this to replace the old dead one.

Readme: https://github.com/cooljingle/memrise-all-typing/blob/master/README.md
Old thread: http://web.archive.org/web/20160508163822/http://www.memrise.com/thread/1364557/

latest version (v0.1.3) should have the fix for the memrise switch to https; I’ve also turned all typing enforcements on by default as most people seem to set it that way and then get confused every time a script update comes and changes it back.

Switch a course to/from typing or tapping?

This is working very well with this change, thanks a lot to you both.

@cooljingle - Thanks for quickly updating this script and all the others that you’ve written!

Hello. Ceased to operate your script - Memrise all typing. Help fix it.

(Cooljingle) #5

Just to comment on what that change does - it enforces typing even if the column being tested has been specially set to no typing.

If you like I can add it as part of the options at the top of the script, although I’ll probably set it to false by default.

Another thing I should get round to doing is storing preferences locally so if the script gets updated down the line people’s settings stay intact.

@eneej - check the version of the script you are running, latest version 0.1.3 should be working.


Just installed this into Firefox. First test I still got multiple choice questions for the sentences.

Have you updated to the version that cooljingle just posted?

Make changes in the script Memrise Turbo. Replace the protocol http to

This is working really well for me now, (although only with the change linked to by autismal).

Many thanks


Hi @cooljingle,

I added the Memrise-all-typing script (v0.1.3) direct from the link in your OP in this thread and the Tampermonkey icon displays it is ‘turned on’ when I am reviewing Memrise-created courses but I am still not getting typing tests for phrases (only tapping tests and MC).

Was there something else I needed to do?

Hi @alanh, I got this working today on Firefox on a PC Windows 10. There is a small change you need to make to the js in cooljingle’s repository. It is explained here: Not allowing typing questions.


Hi @Mishamus,

Thanks! Do you know if that will work for Chrome, too?

If so, I’ll take a look later when I have more time. I’m very much a novice when it comes to user scripts. :persevere:


Yes, with that change it is working for me too.


Hi @Mishamus,

I have now got this working on my laptop using Chrome. :smile: It took me a couple of attempts but it’s such a relief to have my typing tests back! Thank you so much!

Many thanks to @cooljingle, too! :clap:

If only we didn’t have to add scripts to make something work properly again!

this script is so wonderful!!! thank you!!

(Cooljingle) #16

There was a another recent change whereby items in the official courses with over 15 characters had typing questions turned off, this may be a reason why so many people had been getting multiple choice even with the script turned on.

I incorporated the change linked by autismal in an update, along with adding a link on the left when in a learning session - ‘All Typing Settings’ that you can use if you want to change from the default (which is to turn typing on in all scenarios) - the changes to these settings are saved locally so if the script needs a further update you won’t have to fiddle with the settings again.

latest is 0.1.4

Sorry, this post can be deleted. Double post.

Thanks for the script. Is there a way to integrate this in Safari? I know I could simply use Firefox (which I use for Wanikani) but for Memrise the experience always was better with Safari somehow.

Edit: Sorry, I forgot about Tampermonkey …

(Cooljingle) #19

I didn’t know that there was a Tampermonkey for Safari - if it works then great! There’s a Tampermonkey for Firefox also, which may be a bit more user friendly than Greasemonkey. I tend to use chrome where it works fine for me.

(Espiacent) #20

I didn’t know there was Tamperamonkey at all. All I knew was Greasemonkey for Firefox (which I use as well). But anyway: The script works with Tampermonkey without problems in Safari. Thanks!
