Hello Parley team.

Firstly thanks for the application - looks very nice - although for me a bit is missing for my usecase.

What I really would need and like to see are graphical flashcards.

I am not training words but math. So I would need an approach very close to normal flashcards. Both sides should be writeable with a graphic file (e.g. png,jpg,latex). I would like parley to show me the front and giving me the possibility to see the back side. I should then tell him if I knew this flashcard enough or if I did not.

So parley will start to ask me the flashcards more that I am unsure of.

Keep up the good work !

You can already add images to the entries, and I can enable using images in flashcards tonight (in svn trunk, at least). :)

What would be the best control scheme for this? Two (independent) check-boxes: 
"Show image on front" and "Show image on back"?

Thanks for your feedback,

Wow tonight would be fast :) (although I would need more time to get the
cvs running on my machine / I am in holiday soon)

I am not sure about your question about the two checkboxes. I think on
is enough for the backside. Maybe I write down an exact scenario and you
know best how to implement this use case ...
Well, the image on the front should be shown as the question. (would be
nice if it could contain latex ...)

To make an example there could be written:
1) analysis/tailerexpansion
2) cagd/bezierfunction/definition (definition,properties,recursion)

So I would write something to let me know what exactly I should

Then I would try to remember, maybe on a paper - rewrite the formulas.
After all click "showbackImage" and look if I had everything and it was
correct. If it was not correct, tell the computer I did not know and he
will ask me this one more often in the next time - like the normal
flashcard approach.
There could be two possibilities - I was not able to reproduce the
answer or my anser was not precise enough - so I would write the
question preciser.

So I would have on the back the
- tailorexpansion
	- with an error estimation
	- with the formular where the error is written by an extra term
- maybe some small theorem when tailor expansion is applicable (if it
would be too much for an extra card)

- definition of bezier splines
- properties like sum to 1
- positive in (0,1)
- recursion formular

There is already a column in the editor where you can write latex.  I haven't tested it yet but will do that tonight.  It's supposed to render into a picture by itself. That should be very close to what you want.
