I understand the fact that it could be used as you mentioned. But for my own use it was not my goal.
I know public opds catalog full of free books, from national library or project such as Gutemberg filled with public domain books. A very nice way to get books for my new KOBO, so many classics authors I want to read.
I was very surpised by the lack of a nice OPDS client for Windows. As Calibre is my main tool to manage my ebooks on my Kobo...
I started writing some code in Python to get opds feeds, but I am very far waay from a real plugin, it is my first python coding.
In your opinion, does this type of plugin could be a bad idea for Calibre or not. To know if I continu this way or just try to get ebooks from OPDS by other means. I mean does this plugin could be welcome by the Calibre users and authors?
