I would love a plugin that automatically takes certain tags and maps them to others. Like what the Goodreads metadata download does but on already tagged books.

Plugin with OCR

The ideia is the development of a plugin with OCR tecnology that allows Calibre to search the Book name and the TOC directly from the pages, independent from the metadata and external sites.

Automate the news fetch?

Hi there! Major newb here. I searched through the plugins thread and the Plugin ideas but my forum-fu is weak (waaah! boot to the head!) Anyway, I was fiddling with the news fetch and this is what I wanted to do.

1.Recipes already set and downloads scheduled. (obviously works already)
2. News downloads but sits in whatever library it was open when it downloaded

***3. On completion, tag it and move to a different library.

Any ideas? All ideas appreciated and it might be useful for other things too since it would be automated. I wanted to do like this because I work overnight and have it set to download at like 2am in the morning so I can read when I get home.

Thanks.
Joe

Plugin to find the Language of the book EPUB

Dear all,

Does anyone know if there is a plugin (or can someone create this) that checks for some words and from there automaticly sets the Language in Calibre. Like in English you have the, one, and and such, if those words are found then the Language is English. If it's de, een, het then it will be dutch.

Maybe if in the plugin you can type in your own words and mention then what the Language will be, so it will then search in the epub for those words, if found, then set the Language in the metatag automaticly.

I have, I don't know how many books and I'm reading Dutch and my girlfriend only reads English. So we will have both.

Regards,
Hans

Hello there.

I recently dug into making a recipe to create ebooks from news feeds and got it working, cover, masthead image, everything.
Except...

Would it be possible to change the way Calibre creates the ebook main menu to include thumbnails of each site logo? That would be quite useful for tapping links from the menu, as well as having a better graphic result.

I would like to get a list of the folder paths for books currently displayed in the book list - preferably just a "simple" URI list as in

Code:
file:///E:/Calibre Libraries/Main/Author Name1/Book Title1 (1234)
file:///E:/Calibre Libraries/Main/Author Name1/Book Title2 (2134)
file:///E:/Calibre Libraries/Main/Author Name2/Book Title2 (3421)
I looked at Catalogue - but couldn't see anything about getting the folder path

I want to use the list to drive a couple of 3rd party programs to inject metadata into PDF and RTF files

Or if someone could point me at a simple plug in that I could hack.

Thanks BR

Windows or Dos
Code:
dir "L:\Calibre Portable\Calibre Library\*.*" /b/d/s >list.txt
replace the path with yours.
list.txt is the out file, include a path as desired
dir /? for more options

Typically there would less than 15 books displayed in the list from a library approaching 4000, the selection being based on the #status custom column.

Currently I
  1. create a Temporary library using the structure from my Main library
  2. move the displayed books (#status:"=72 finalCheck") from my Main Library to the Temporary library,
  3. close Calibre
  4. process everything in the Temporary library via a powershell script
  5. start Calibre
  6. update the #status column for all the books in the Temporary library to '85 Final'
  7. move all the books in the Temporary library to the Main library
  8. remove the Temporary library, from Calibre and Windows

The list would obviate the need for the Temporary library - I would use it drive the powershell script and update the book files in-situ - ie in the Main library.

Thanks BR

Adobe puts out books in .acsm format. I have found no e-reader support. Is it possible to create and a plug-in for Adobe Digital Editions? DRM or unlocked would be ok.

All books are currently displayed unless you STATE you are using a restricted view (you did not, so I assumed you want the pat for ALL of the library )

How good is your SQL ?
'Path' is stored in the Books table
calibredb List --fields=All gets you an output listing file that include the book ID. You can ad a --search to the command to limit the returned items

This wouldn't actually be very hard.
  1. Start with the example GUI plugin from the calibre documentation.
  2. Use self.gui.library_view.get_selected_ids() to get the ids of selected books
  3. Loop on that list calling self.gui.current_db.path(book_id, index_is_id=True)
  4. Use ViewLog (from calibre.gui2.dialogs.message_box import ViewLog) to display the list of book dirs.

@BetterRed: Have you looked at the Open With plugin? You should be able to configure an entry to open your executable against the file you want to change in the list. Maybe you will need to wrap it in a batch file to parse the folder path out.

I think what you are planning to do is from the directory path, read the metadata.opf file in the directory, determine the name of the RTF or PDF file and then execute a command on that file using the data from the metadata.opf. If so, I think calling a batch file with Open With get you were you want to be.

If that doesn't work, you can look at the plugins code to see how it gets the paths.

No eReader will read ACSM files.

ACSM files are nothing more than the "control" file to download the actual ePub. You open the ACSM file within ADE (in fact, the standard setup of ADE associates ACSM files with ADE, so just opening the ACSM file from Explorer works) and then ADE downloads the ePub file.

Once the ePub is downloaded, it can be synced over to your eReader from within ADE.

If the ePub is DRM protected you can use tools to remove that DRM.
