Makes Duolingo more user-friendly

Image from store duoleavemealone for Duolingo
Description from store This extension makes the Duolingo.com language-learning site faster to use by automatically clicking through interstitial screens displayed after entering correct answers or finishing lessons. These screens' messages are displayed briefly onscreen instead. Duo's motivational messages are also skipped, because everyone already knows that you are great! :-D (Note that Duolingo now provides a setting for disabling motivational messages, which is more reliable than this extension's detection logic.) Since this extension interacts the Duolingo site, it's unfortunately likely to stop working if (or when) the site's interface is updated. **This extension is not affiliated with Duolingo.** --- Changes: 0.28: Click through correct-answer screens for alphabet/character exercises. 0.27: Click through some additional end-of-story screens. 0.26: Add a browser action button that can be clicked to temporarily toggle the extension off or on. 0.25: Click through most of the screens related to "legendary" (crown) lessons for gilded skills, and avoid a bug where the extension got stuck clicking a button at the end of a legendary lesson. Also add click rate-limiting to try to avoid future bugs like this. 0.24: Handle new ways that button colors are set in regular skills and stories. 0.23: Handle /progress-quiz/ URLs for Duolingo Plus. 0.22: Second attempt at handling changes to "correct" message background color. 0.21: Handle changed "correct" message background color. 0.20: Add on-by-default option for controlling whether correct-answer messages are skipped or not. 0.19: Click blue "Continue" button that's now show after completing a story. 0.18: Fix discuss links again (broken by another Duolingo change). 0.17: Fix discuss links (which look like they were broken by a Duolingo change). 0.16: Display completion messages after stories. Fix a bug where the next button was clicked prematurely when answering text-entry questions in stories. 0.15: Add support for placement tests (available before creating a profile). 0.14: Make correct-answer messages yellow instead of green when they contain extra information, e.g. typo/accent corrections or translations. 0.13: Improve support for Stories and enable by default. 0.12: Add an option to enable experimental support for clicking the next button in Stories. (Options are available by right-clicking on the extension's toolbar icon.) 0.11: Fix incorrect clicks at beginning of skill tests. Fix discuss links when loading URLs directly instead of navigating from main page. Add spacing between typo messages and discuss links. 0.10: Add experimental support for displaying discuss links. (Not released on Chrome Web Store.) 0.9: Skip start screen when testing out of the current level of a skill (i.e. URLs ending in /test). 0.8: Add options to control message timeouts and center messages horizontally. Also handle checkpoints (i.e. /checkpoint/ URLs) in addition to tests (/bigtest/). 0.7: Add an option page and provide support for automatically starting timed or non-timed practice. (I had to add the "storage" permission to be able to save the option's value.) Also automatically click the next button during checkpoints that are being used to test out of a set of skills. 0.6: Also automatically click the "Next" button on https://www.duolingo.com/practice. Note that motivational messages sometimes (always?) aren't skipped here. Duolingo makes it really hard to consistently detect them. :-(

  • (2021-09-19) alan james hunt: Very useful extension which can make Duolingo more fun to use. I have 3 suggestions: 1. I'd like to have the option of clicking on the "bubble" for it to stay, so you can go to the Discussion tab, revisit the answer and so on. 2. At the end of a lesson you can usually review the mistakes you made and the lesson in general. If you could add this option to the "bubble" at the end showing your total xp and level, that would be great :) 3. I'd like to have a fast option to temporarely disable this extension, because maybe you want to see the feedback boxes/ end feedback in a particular lesson, so you'd be able to stop and start the extension just with 2/3 clicks. With those additions Duolingo would definitely be a lot more fun to use without losing any of the features. I hope you can fulfill my wishes :)
  • (2021-09-13) Cletus El Fetus: Useful, but would be more useful if it removed the annoying cartoon characters
  • (2021-03-25) Max Lalli: This is an amazing extension in my opinion. I like how the little bubble pops up and tells you how you did instead of the default box DuoLingo uses. I like the overall look and how I don't have to skip over that pesky feedback screen anymore. One thing I will say though, is that when I'm reading a story in night mode, the words disappear after the narrator speaks them.
  • (2021-03-21) Yuri Pelz Gossmann: It's incredibly helpful.
  • (2020-11-30) Vita Shao: It's good, but I think the screen flashes by too quickly, so we don't have time to see the other solutions. Also, when I try to click the discussion buttons, report ones, etc..., It doesn't seen to bring me to that page, however, this is a great extension and I love it!
  • (2020-04-13) Matt Fellenz: This is quite useful for batch strengthening sessions and the likes. However, I wish there was an option to go back to the screen for any reason, and an option to see the discussion for that question. Other than that, sleek and perfect.

  • (2021-11-09, v:0.26) Prometheus: National Flag Options?
    Hi, I'm wondering if there's any way for your app to include options for the national flags that Duolingo offers? I was thinking (since a lot of Duolingo users come from other English-speaking countries) it would be nice to have the British Union Flag or the English Cross of St. George, or the Australian or New Zealand flags as optional replacements for the US flag. Also, a Mexican flag for the Spanish flag (since the country with the most Spanish speakers is Mexico). I'm a graphic designer, and I've made my own flag graphics for some of these flags, but I have no idea how to get them into the game. So I figured I'd ask you if it's possible, and if you know how to do it? Thanks - Ian Cooper.

    I don't get it, it doesn't do anything for me... not sure what else to say.
  • (2020-06-23, v:0.15) dahliavkarma: Showing the report button
    It would be sweet if there's a preference for showing the report button. The button is actually quite useful in some still-buggy courses.
