jFlash

What is jFlash?

jFlash is a multilingual, web-based flashcard system based on open web standards, PHP, and XML. It consists of two principal software modules:

  1. A PHP system for indexing and delivering flashcard content.
  2. A browser-neutral Javascript application that parses out and presents a set flashcards represented in XML.

What is it good for?

jFlash is useful when you want to memorize something, and perhaps share the ability to memorize things with other people over the web. In addition, jFlash is language neutral since its content is presented in UTF-8, so theoretically you could use jFlash to drill anything from Arabic airports to zoo names in Tamil.

Who is using jFlash?

A number of learners around the globe and about 15 students in a University of Minnesota Korean class.

Please let me know if you find my software useful and I'll add a link to your jFlash content here if you wish!

You may view my live jFlash installation here.

What do I need to run jFlash?

jFlash is a server-side web application, so you must at present have a PHP-enabled web server. Other requirements and features can be read in jFlash's README file.

whereas yours says

Don't know that that makes a difference.

I'm having the same issue as John Francis Lee (Nov. 11, 2007) comment. I think I have jFlash installed on a local php server (MAMP on a Mac, Apache 2.0.59, PHP 4.4.7 & 5.2.5), but there are no lessons listed under "choose a lesson" even though the lessons folder is in the same folder as index.php.

Thanks for any help.
