I am considering an OPDS client plugin for Calibre. You could have one Calibre connect to another - either to have a central large repositiory that is shared out, or for one user to share a library with another. You could also add book sites that support OPDS without petitioning to have them included in the "Get Books" menu.

I'm wondering if there is a demand for this besides myself?

Plugin: GUI to manage tags, merge & consolidate

Hi,

I am trying -- yet again -- to consolidate my zillion tags. I really wish there was a graphical way to do this, a graphical tag manager.

Just like Lightroom assigns keywords to pictures: First assign a tag (target tag) to a spray-can. The cursor turns into a spray-can and from now on every tag that you click on, is renamed into the target tag (shift or alt-click takes the action back).

One could just pick up a tag from a small list of desired tags, mark other tags that should be merged, this is a very fast process. Existing tags can end up in multiple target tags.

I guess it is important that this "merge" is not committed before all is done, thus one would have to collect all mappings first and keep that intermediate state even between sessions and commit when the user is ready to map.

This would be great for all of us who dream of having a consolidated, cleaned-up, rather brief tag-list.

Thanxx for reading this, Mixx

In the Tag Browser: Right click: Rename (in your case: to an existing tag). They will merge

Thanks, theducks,

they will, but the process is *very* tedious. I am trying to deal with more than a thousand undesired tags, that's the reason for my "idea" below/above.

I am impressed with how fast that process is in Lightroom for photos. If we had something that worked (roughly) the way I described, I think I could consolidate my tag-hell.

Cheers, Mixx

That way is only if you want to replace the tags with a standard.
Just to get rid of some.. Piece of cake
1st' set the 'Alter Tag Browser' (at the bottom of the Tag Browser) to: Sort By Popularity. Now the list is shown by how many usage Hits each item has

Now, right click and pick your poison (from the upper part of the list)
Or choose: Manage Tags (further down) where you can multi-select and use the recycle button to the Left

Plugin for filtering profanity in epubs

I searched the forum and could find no reference to this so if it's already been discussed please direct me to the discussion.

Is it possible to have a batch profanity filter plugin to run on epub books? I have been using Sigil to modify the epubs individually, but it would be faster to be able to do it all at once. I'm certain it can be done, but I don't know how to do it myself.

Or is there another way to do this that anyone is aware of.

YES PLEASE!

I'm not sure if this is what you mean exactly, but I want to download directly from various OPDS catalogs. There are hundreds out there. There is no point in waiting for the developers to add each source one-by-one to the "Get Books" list. Please let us specify our own OPDS URL's.

There are plenty of mobile e-readers that allow you to add your own list of OPDS catalogs to search, but I have yet to find a desktop solution.

It seems like such an obvious feature. Please make this happen!

Hi

I like a plugin or a addition to the program about author and all the books the have written they don't need to be in your book list just to see if the author has written any other books your are interested in.

Thanks for your time.

Fix author names plugin.

Hello
The idea in short: compare author names with a well known source and fix wrong ones.

I have now many duplicate authors with LN FN, and FN LN(my mistake during import, I noticed it after import), some with wrong "." placement and so on. The Find Duplicates plugin is very helpful in finding and fixing that, but it will not find one single wrong name and cannot fix names automatically.

For sure there are some good sources of author names on the internet (on wikipedia, Fantastic Fiction), I do not know which is best, could be used.

Maybe I did not look far enough, but I would like to find a plugin for the following site: http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/index.html

It has a lot of old covers and series information sorted by arthor.

Is there a plugin I have not found yet?

Thanks
James

Yes there is. There is a sticky post at the top of the Plugins forum that has an Index of Plugins. Scroll down to the Metadata Source plugins and you will find it.

When in doubt glance up at the sticky posts at the top of the various calibre forums for possible answers. Unlike other forums, calibre's forums, for the most part, have nice concise posts filled with information.

Good Reading!

Once your question has been answered it is too late to "take back" your post. Answering it was no inconvenience.
