Setup

To set up, install the requirements (you might want to set up a venv first)

$ python -m pip install -r requirements.txt

Ensure that you have a proper installation of TeXlive installed, including XeLaTeX, and the Noto Sans CJK fonts

Then generate all the cards by running

$ make all

The resulting pdfs can be found in the pdf directory.

Intended use case

Memorization cards

Secondly, get one of these bad bois:

Highlighter/text marker

Although not strictly required, keeping track of which of the words you've put into your memorization cards will help you avoid duplicates.
