A hex on you Idolse

From a user perspective I think putting those sorts of checks in Quality Check is fine. The gate got opened when the "check EPUB for jacket" was asked for. May as well jam it open now

As for adding those features - well to be honest I wouldn't quite know where to start in terms of what I should be "looking for" etc for most of them. If you want to see them happen I would suggest one of two things. Either write all the changes yourself using the latest version of the plugin, send it to me and I will review it and release it. Or alternatively PM me some code snippets/pseudocode for what needs to be done for each and I will take a look at it after I clear some other things out of the way like the duplicate finder plugin.

I'll look into the plugin and pm/email you. I think all the building blocks are there already, just didn't want to jump into making unauthorized changes.

I'd suggest looking for two book jackets. Looking for two xhtml files starting with jacket inside the epub.

I used the missing book jacket feature, then reconverted with book jackets. Checking a second time found 80% of the books as still missing the book jacket because they had an existing old jacket that the plugin checks first before it is able to find the new jacket.

Personally I would love the option to remove all jacket*.xhtml files from the ePubs of selected books so I could start fresh with new jackets.

Sounds great. I have no problem at all with others like yourself making changes/additions, particularly if as you have you have asked first and then send them to me for review/release.

What I prefer not to see is someone making changes and then posting a forked version on the thread with no discussion first. I think it confuses users as to which version they should download etc. I'm working on these every day so it isn't as if you would have to wait long for me to release once we agree the changes, and I always give credit for contributions if that is a concern.

Of course if/when I stop contributing to the forums then someone else would have to take over the whole plugin maintenance thing. I'm doing my best to ram the features in off the todo list before that happens.

Ahhh, I see the issue. Right now my check looks for any kind of jacket file, then looks for the calibre attribute on it and terminates the search at that point in that book. So if the first jacket file did not have the attribute, it says it has no jacket, even though the second jacket file does have the attribute.

I think that I should change the "Check has jacket" to look at all jacket files. And then add a new check of "Check multiple jackets" which does the additional request you have made.

That's a good idea. I don't know how to implement it (yet) but I'll put it on the list. So you would use "Check EPUB has jacket" to display all the books with jackets, and then select them all (in your case), then use a "Remove EPUB jacket" on your selection. I know all the plumbing is there in Calibre to do it but it is a case of wiring it all in. It is one of those things that might be best done as a "job" that runs in the background I think like conversions do.

With everything you are currently tackling making the list is a good start.

I made a discovery today, but I am not sure if it is an error in the plugin or in Calibre itself. When I make a quality check for "no cover" then nothing is found anymore. It was running last week without problem. Unfortunately I had an update of the plugin and Calibre.

Did you fix them all? This is working for me and I have the latest version of the plugin and Calibre.

This is just a basic search cover:false it works fine using either the plugin or entering the search manually. No results means everything has a cover of some sort.

Searching for cover:false and cover:true are broken in 0.7.55. Will be fixed in 0.7.56. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/calibre/+bug/762133

In the meantime, you can search for cover:0 instead of cover:false and cover:1 instead of cover:true.

Worked great and faster than I thought it would be. Now I have 900+ books with two jackets and from a sizable sample it appears that jacket.xhtml is the one I want to be deleted from every book.

Is the removal of the extra jacket something you would consider for this plugin?

@dwanthny - thx for the feedback. Yes removing extra jackets is something I am considering, it is just down the priority list compared to a bunch of other plugins I have been trying to push new versions out of or release.

I think we need a special "EPUB" submenu that all these related checks get pushed onto (including Idolse's additions should he code them up). Would these "Remove jackets" and "Remove extra jackets" menu items be wanted to work only on selected rows or on the entire library? If it is just selected rows I need to make sure the menu items makes that obvious as all other functions in Quality check apply to your whole (if unrestricted) library.

@capnm
- Which TOC are you wanting to check for - the metadata TOC? I confess to still not having my head around this TOC stuff despite the FAQ entry. Could be one for Idolse...
- The calibre_bookmarks.txt would be easy enough to do a check for, and likewise remove once the plumbing is in place to do the same for multiple jackets (maybe even less work since perhaps it isn't listed in the epub's index of files?).
- I have no idea what "iTunes spoor" is?

I'm not sure that this would even be possible - I'm pretty sure all epub's have to have an ncx file, which is basically the 'TOC'. The better question is does it have a 'good' TOC, which is a much harder question to answer, requiring a heuristic approach. I don't see myself tackling that problem. Then you've got the issue of supporting TOCs from different formats....


I think regarding the itunes spoor is that Apple puts stuff into the epub on their own similar to Calibre's bookmark file, except with Apple they don't even bother following spec and just embed proprietary data without listing it in the opf.
