Question Command Line (should be simple)

I've have two news feeds setup as scheduled tasks to download and send to my Kindle at application start up. However, I would like to create a batch file to place in my system Start Up folder to to this instead of launching Calibre.

Can anyone help?

The answer depends on the operating system you are using.

A forum search should turn up several threads on this. Try "ebook-convert recipe" or some similar combination of search terms.

Automatically fetching and converting a recipe is "simple" as per your title. See here. Run the command line on a scheduled script and you get the ebook saved to disk.

It becomes more complex when you want to add the new ebooks to Calibre to manage them with Calibre, or have Calibre manage them automatically as recipes by deleting older copies or autosend them to the ereader and delete them when sent, or just send them to the ereader automatically.

By the time your script does everything a sophisticated user wants it to do, it may be easier to just run Calibre and let it do its thing.

I only have three feeds, all are listed in the default News Feeds. I didn't know I would have to learn Python in order to do this.

Think I'll just work on a scheduled task to run the app minimized for 30min then close.

Thanks for the help

You don't. One can also script in the command line. The basic recipe fetching is as easy as running one single command, but transferring it to the reader may demand some more arcane invocations.

That should work as well.
