What flashcards are

A flashcard or flash card is a set of cards bearing information, as words or numbers, on either or both sides, used in classroom drills or in private study. One writes a question on a card and an answer overleaf. [Wikipedia]

How does this work

python-flashcards is a small tool, which receives cards from a YAML file, and shows them in a random order so you can practice.

YAML format:

  topic: The topic I will say out loud
  content: The information I'll check after saying out loud what I know
  keywords: reference, words
  topic: Python
  content: Is a widely used high-level programming language for general-purpose programming,
    created by Guido van Rossum and first released in 1991.
  keywords: programming, language

Being keyword the only optional.
