Recipe for Le Monde Diplomatique, edición Cono Sur (Argentina)

Greets, all.

I've taken my first shot at writing a recipe. It's for fetching Le Monde Diplomatique edición Cono Sur (Argentina), which is in Spanish. It requires a subscription. You can find the recipe here.

I'd welcome any feedback if anyone finds it useful.

Cheers!

You've got some linux specific code in there for getting covers, that should be removed.

Ah, yes, thank you for pointing that out. I've now replaced the fixed UNIX style path with a Python tempfile.

I'll try to test the recipe in a Windows machine as soon as I get access to one.

Cheers!

Couple of things:

1) Dont use NamedTemporaryFile, use one of the functions from calibre.ptempfile instead as they handle temp file locations in a consistent manner.

2) Dont use PIL, use the save_cover_data_to function from calibre/utils/magick/draw.py it is more robust (PIL is unmaintained, that function uses ImageMagick).

Great, I'll change that. Thanks for the tip.

Will do. One question though: what would be the best way to handle the cropping? The cover file, as available in the website, also contains the back cover, which should be removed.

Thanks!

In the end I used your "Image" wrapper class, which provides a "crop" and a "save" methods, exactly what I needed. No optional Python modules used anymore

Thanks for the help, and let me know if there's anything else that could be improved.

Cheers!
