I have books for a wide area of sources. Unfortunately the filename isn't setup the same way on every file. The metadata is mostly a pain, author and title exchanged, sometime both in one field, no series and so on. So I decided, to take these information from the name of the file.
Ok, until this point no problem, I've defined different regex strings for importing. Now it would be usefull to have an
- choose the files to import
- import single, multiple files or the content of a whole folder
- select import regex (best with descriptive names)
- select if name and surname should be exchanged
It would be fine if it could be build into Calibre as option to switch on and off, but I think a plugin would be better as this wouldn't be interesting for many people.
I would write it by myself, but I have never programmed in Phyton and it would need some time to learn so I could program such a plugin.
