If I can get the whole process into a single button, I'll make a nice simplistic sync-tool to support wireless sync.

Thank you very much! It works quite well. I mainly like the direct access to shelves/library and the chance of putting ereader to sleep without the button.

Two questions:

1) Can I help to translate the plugins text (Tools/Shelves)
2) Can you include an access inside Custom Command to "Reading Life"? Silly thing, but I would like to have it (if it's possible, of course).

wow - thanks

this pluging just keeps getting better and better.
Now the most used commands are right there on the main screen without going through menus and tiny icons

Now if just the clock would work.

Currently I can see clock only in the footer that is display if I call the menu - I mean the one with the icons for font size, options, ... on the footer.

During reading the footer just reads "S. xxx VON xxx"

Is this the clock supposed to display there as well ?
My Kobo is set to German - would that make a difference ?

BTW - is the sync() needed if I just input a microSD card or only if the file system is modified directly over ssh ?

thanks

As far as I remember, the Touch will automatically sync when:
- The USB cable is detached (refreshes onboard library only).
- A micro-SD is inserted (refreshes SD library only)
- The webbrowser downloads a new file (may only add that single file to the library, havn't checked)

In short, you should be fine as long as you're not modifying the file system through telnet/ftp/ssh etc.

Works perfect, thank you for the direct shelves access.

The only thing I can still think off as a feature for the front page, would be plugins for the other Extra-programms, sudoku, chess, etc.

You gonna tackle the reader app aswell? removing the pagenumbers etc.? Not sure if it is even possible to tweak it.

Oh one more idea, a 24h clock option would be a nice feature for those that aren't used to am/pm times.

Thanks a lot, it's getting better an better.

Somme suggestions:
  • Change of order of the menues: Bibliothek | Regale | Sonstiges (more logical; "Regale" is shorter than "Bücherregale")
  • "Sonstiges"-menue: "Library" is redundant, remove it. Translation for German: Browser = Internet; Reboot = Neustart; Reserved = Frei; WiFi = WLAN
  • Toggling WiFi function: On/Off
  • 24-hour-clock
  • 1.9.17 style favorite books at the bottom of the start page
  • A Tweaks Plugin style Window to choose options including those for "Sonstiges"

Yes please!! I think the non-English systems already have 24 clock options so it shouldn't be too difficult to get it into the English system as well. At least, before firmware 2.x.x there were 24h clock options for foreign languaged systems... the post quoted below has got me thinking maybe the 2.x.x firmware stopped supporting this? That would be sad

I vote for that too. I think there should be an option to have or not the number of pages during reading. To earn additional space of at least 15%. A true full screen mode ... The pages number should in this case, appears when going through menu, at the top, next to the percentage of the book.

The numbers can be removed quite easily but the reading screen is not resized. I guess it is because the lower center area is needed to show the reading footer (font settings ....).
Maybe I can find a way later.

Everything new looks good, thx again.

I found something weird, now that I put more custom commands into the list, I notice that they don't order as expected.

Thats the order in the ini.

Quote:
Browser=Plugin:penBrowser()
Notepad=Plugin::scribble()
Sudoku=Plugin::sudoku()
WiFi=Plugin::connectWifi()
Sleep=Plugin::sleep()
And this is how the Menu looks:

Quote:
Browser
Notepad
Sleep
Sudoku
WiFi

Now when I look at it in english it's obvious. ^^

The translations were of course not alphabetical. *g*
