Auto convert on transfer

If an ebook in the library is found in a format that is not supported by the requesting device connected to the server, auto convert it to a supported format and send to the device.

Just a thought.

I believe calibre does this already, from the 4th paragraph of the User Manual
Quote:
If you want to read the book on your reader, connect it to the computer, wait till calibre detects it (10-20 seconds) and then click the “Send to device” button. Once the icon stops spinning again, disconnect your reader and read away! If you didn’t convert the book in the previous step, calibre will auto convert it to the format your reader device understands.

It does on a hard connect. Such as the USB. I specified the server in the post. Referring to a network connection. In the specific scenario I am referring to, wifi is being used. The ebook is transferred over the wifi in its original format.

Lightbulb Kindle Spoof for Amazon sync

With a quick glance, I'm not entirely sure if this is possible with the calibre plugin API.

My idea for a plugin is one that allows Calibre to synchronise with books bought for a Kindle on the Amazon store. The implementation could be done by spoofing the service and registering Calibre as Kindle for PC and then accessing online storage. This would also prevent the download of personal documents as they would most likely already be managed by Calibre.

This, in combination with pwr's Kindle proxy would allow Calibre to be a unified location for ebooks on the Kindle.

Reading List / Get Books crossover

Hi,

Let me start by thanking all the plugin developers for their great work -- they have added a great deal to my satisfaction with Calibre and my ability to streamline my various workflows.

In thinking about what workflow I could next streamline, I was thinking about how I use the Reading List plugin to maintain my wishlist. I, like many other ebook enthusiast I would imagine, have a fairly large backlog of unread ebooks as well as an almost equally long list of ebooks that I am interested in, but have not yet bought due to the fact that I have plenty to read on hand and that the introductory price for new ebooks is more than I am willing to pay. With this setup, once a week or so, I walk through my Wishlist and use the Get Books capability to check the current prices for all the books on my Wishlist, looking for any books that have dropped into my price comfort zone.

For me (and I hope others who have a similar workflow), it would be useful to have an addition to the Reading List plugin to be able to update a custom column with the lowest price (or potentially list of prices) returned by a Get Books search (using the configured stores in Get Books) for each book in the list.

Any thoughts?

Dave.

Thanks.
Just in case you haven't tried this, I'll tell you how I handle it.

Select all books.
Menu -> Remove Books
-> Remove files of a specific format from selected books..
or
-> Remove all formats from selected books, except...

That is what I do now, But if I know that I am not going to want the original format after the conversion if it could be removed after the conversion as part of the conversion process, then I would not need this extra step.

(the older nerds amongst us may understand the reference).

If you mean with regards to some comic book plugin you posted on here a while ago about, this isn't the right thread to ask dev questions on. If you have a specific question, ask it in the development forum and any of the developers could help you.

Virtual shelves view

Being able to see my ebooks as books on virtual shelves is the very feature I miss in Calibre a lot. A virtual shelves view, available in quite many ebook managment programs (e.g. http://ebook-lib.com/, http://alfaebooks.com/products/alfae...nager/overview) would be a great additon in my opinion.

A simple view of multipile covers and titles (like on the first screenshot at the latter website) would be practical as well. I would love 3D models of books as well (although I guess is just too much of a hassle).

Just giving some ideas

This concept has been discussed and some day may be implemented, until then the cover browser is as close as exists in the current version. My current setup is attached.

Thanks for the answer; I've looked for threads about it and come up with nothing (I must have used wrong keywords).

Cover Browser is nice (I turn on it on from time to time) but not very usable, at least not for me, as I'm not able to get to the book I need just by clicking on its cover (i.e. Cover Browser adds a nice graphic touch but is not really an interface on its own).
