Arrow [WILL DEV] Send to Kindle Email from Web GUI

Hi,

I posted this thread not long ago:

[Request] Send to Kindle Email from Web GUI
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=202074

I've got experience developing in Python, and would be happy to add this feature into the Web GUI on the details page, however it seems the code for interacting with the Web GUI is in a compiled file in the pylib.zip file, which I believe means it can't be done in a plugin.

Any chance I can pitch in and add this as an official feature?

Thanks,
Ben

You are welcome to submit a patch. Note that there are many complications:

1) Which email address so you email to?
2) What happens if the preferred format for that email address is not available?
3) There needs to be some feedback to the user when the emailling succeeds/fails.

If you want to submit a patch, you should setup a development environment as described in the user manual under "setting up a development environment"

Wow, I totally missed the dev environment part of the manual. Will do. I've rolled the ugliest PHP script ever that parses the metadata.db file so I can temporarily accomplish what I'm trying to do. I'll work on an official patch soon.

Thanks,
Ben
