    The https://ukulelehelper.com/index.html seems be a good site too besides ukebuddy.

    Some chords are not complete in there, which is a rather good thing too, but also one to know and be aware.

    A chord template in five lines with no need for an App. Just add a fretboard map.
    Are there missing sharps and flats? For example, D chord would be F# as 3rd.

    The C major scale is used as a template for any scale. Its a good template because it is easy to write out. You can use the Am scale for the minor chord template.
    So for the chords in the key of D you make the table starting with the D chromatic scale and the D major scale in the first line. Then you find the 3rd, 5th and 7th. You may not need the chromatic scale, but it shows you how the scale works without trying to remember a formula.
    Once you get the hang of it you can also write in the chord names under the columns. Its called the diatonic sequence.
    The 3rd, 5th and 7th rows are actually modes of the major scale. You can find the greek names if you are bored, or just remember them as 3rd, 5th and 7th mode things. You only need to know the right technical names if you are going teach a class. When you are working out the chords on the fretboards, you don't need any extra info to distract you.
    Once you get the hang of it, the more complicated chords will not be hard to work out with just your fretboard and your brain.
    The on-line apps are nice and easy. But they wont show you arpeggio patterns for example. When you are fingerpicking or playing chord fragments, you don't need to make a whole chord shape, you can use what ever is in reach to make the chord or chord fragment.
    Some sites do show you possible arpeggios:
    https://ukebuddy.com/ukulele-arpeggios/Cmaj7-arpeggio

    I understood what you mean't Bill1, so you have stacked Cmaj7, Dm7, Em7, Fmaj7, G7, Am7, Bm7b5 Cmaj7 on the paper. Your way is somewhat complicated to use if I may say. Easier just have our diatonic chords without writing to pick every other note starting from a root note of every scale degree, or rather just know what chords will be what kind.

    I like theory, but sites like ukebuddy are golden
    And we can't realistically expect/demand some newbie to just wanting to play given chords to a song, to know much chord theory anyways.

    Third on D is F#, isn't it?
