This is the first time I've dropped in on the Plugin forum in a few weeks - you've been busy! Wow, pages, reading lists... Somehow I don't think I'm going to get much real work done today. Great work!

Possible bugs and improvements

Could you clarify how it is supposed to work? I added "Read" and "To Read" lists. I created 2 custom columns. And it seems that all 3 lists (including "Default") share the same column and tags (to add/remove). Every time I change either the column or the tags in the plugin properties all lists are affected, not just the list shown in the "Lists" menu.

It would be nice if each list has own "Tags to add/remove when adding to the list" value. It will allow to display different text for different lists. The idea is that when all columns are displayed in GUI it easy visible what lists some book belong to (without looking for the columns names).

What types of columns are shown in the "Column to update" menu? It seems that only the "Comma separated text, like tags, shown in the tag browser". I did not try all possible types but I added "Text, but with a fixed set of permitted values" column. The column is not shown in the menu.

Some custom columns can be displayed using colors. Rating columns are displayed as starts. It would be nice if such columns can be used in the reading lists.

Hi pike2000, welcome to mobileread.

Those were all intentional limitations, so you have the behaviour correct. In hindsight I realise I should have made the extra effort to make the column and tags a per list setting as it falls apart as a concept if you have multiple lists, so I will fix that.

The problem with supporting more column types is what value do I put in them. So again I chose the easy route of just supporting text type columns. For instance you mention a stars column which along with any of the numerical based columns I wouldn't have thought made any sense to indicate presence on a list?

A permitted value text column should have worked I thought though I did not try it. So I can fix that if it is broken. I could I guess also add support for yes/no columns too. But a rating column doesn't make sense to me?

Thank you for a great new plugin.

I am glad to see you are considering adding a unique tag per list. I would find this very helpful.

At first I didn't realize this wasn't the case because of the way I used it yesterday - create new list, input desired column & tag, then add desired books. Rinse, repeat. It was only after I saw a book I wanted to put on a previous list that I realized the tags weren't "attached" to the lists, and at first I thought it was something I did. (I mean, after all, when something doesn't work as expected, it's usually my fault.)

So I, too, am happy to hear that you'll be changing that. I've got a whole new system now thanks to this plugin. I use it to create "priority lists" accessible from the tag browser. I could have done it before with a custom column, but using the plugin is much faster than editing the metadata field, and that's without even using shortcut keys yet.

Yes it is one of those things in hindsight you smack your forehead over and say how could I have been so stupid

I did consider doing it at the time, but because it is quite a bit of extra work I took a shortcut and thought that per library settings would be enough. Obviously it isn't... duh... I only use a single list myself so hadn't spotted the impact of it in usage.

I'm coding it up at the moment so should be a release in a few hours.

And on that note, it's time to make the donation rounds again. Which, coincidentally, is made so much easier by the plugin updater plugin.

You're very welcome! Anyone who makes my life easier (and allows me to geek out in the process) deserves to be rewarded.

(Note to self: good deeds on Fridays make entire weekends, whereas good deeds Monday - Thursday make someone's day. Do deeds on Friday when possible from now on.)

v1.1 Released

Changes in this release:
  • Change all tagging column definitions and values to be per list rather than per library
  • Support other custom column types of enumeration and boolean

I've added code that should migrate your lists and columns/value to the new structure needed for the column change above. This should now allow you to set different columns/values for different lists in the same library. I also added support for yes/no columns and "text with a permitted set of values" columns.

@beckywc - I would say there was a problem migrating your previous lists. Did you restart calibre after installing the new version?

Can you please attach your Reading List.json file to a post (you may have to zip it first to attach it, or else just paste the content into a spoiler tag on here). You can find this using Preferences->Misc->Open Calibre configuration directory and going to the plugins subfolder.

If you just want to get going, you could just delete this file and restart calibre, but that will lose your lists.

Thanks for confirming becky's issue. Obviously there as some sort of configuration migration issue, though I am surprised more people haven't reported it.

The easiest solution for you if you don't mind losing your lists is to rename the Reading List.json file in your calibre plugins folder, then restart calibre. Set your lists up again. Then add your books again, or if you want to you could copy the list of comma separated id values over from the old configuration file that you renamed to the new one.

I will take a look at becky's file shortly to see if I can find out why it went wrong for you both and if a new plugin version could fix it.
