[Metadata Source Plugin] BOL_NL

BOL_NL - Version 3.8.10 - aug 22th, 2016 by Pr. BarnArt.

This plugin is for using BOL.com as a metadata source.
It is only for books in the Dutch language, that's why it is called BOL_NL.
It was based on the 'Barnes' work by 'Grant Drake'.

Main Features of BOL_NL v 3.8.10
  • retrieve isbn.
  • retrieve (multiple) author(-s) (no contributors/translators), title.
  • retrieve comments, cover, rating, publisher and publishing date.
  • retrieve language
  • option to search for ebook-editions only ( if not ISBN-based)
  • option: to retrieve rejected titles in case no exact match is found - default= yes
  • option: to retrieve reviews(NBD/Biblion) besides description - default = yes
    (request Triniton ;-)
  • option: to retrieve covers from Literatuurplein.nl if availalble - default = no (request Wipneus )
  • option: to retrieve only covers from Literatuurplein.nl, not from bol.com (request Wipneus)
  • option: to retrieve tags for Age, Categorie (request Sanghoku)

Special Notes:
  • BOL_NL first looks for a match on the isbn-number, if that is know.
  • Otherwise it takes the author's name and the exact booktitle.
  • If there is no match, the user is shown the rejected titles, so he/she can choose if there is an alternative (not under osX, see know issues).
  • requires calibre 0.8.5 or higher.

Update info 3.8.10
  • update due to websites changes.
  • some layout changes for comments

known issues:
  • sometimes no cover with "inkijkexemplaar", just text.
  • when search is based on isbn there is no rating-info
  • Under osX it is not possible to use a dialog window in a plugin for rejected titles. So for osX users the advise is to disable this option in the configuration of the plugin.

Installation Notes:
  • Download the attached zip file and install the plugin as described in the Introduction to plugins thread.
  • You can configure the plugin within Calibre.
  • Here you can select the options for description and reviews (NBD/Biblion),
    for covers from Literatuurplein and for tags.
