Talking Calibre Update/Install App for OS X

My lazy ass felt updating calibre was a chore, so I sensibly spent several hours writing a script to do that for me.

Now I've bundle an updated version of the script into an app!
You can download the app and source from the GitHub repository. Please post any bugs or suggestions here or on the repository's issues page.


calibre Installer in Action!

Release v1.1

calibre Installer has been updated!

Changes:
  • Fix for bug discovered by Chase Nordengren
  • Download window no longer closes automatically to allow for easy access to output in case of failure; truly a quick hack for logging failures
  • Logging output to log file removed as it now can be accessed from the window

Wonderful - Thank you!

Edit: Just opened Calibre and i'm still on the same version. When I run the updater it retrieves the current version I have installed (0.9.35) rather than 0.9.43

It doesn't look like calibre uses http://code.google.com/feeds/p/calib...ownloads/basic anymore for the location of the current release. If you go into the script and change the existing link to http://status.calibre-ebook.com/dist/osx32 the script might start working again.

The current calibre update is always available from this page.

I've just had a quick look but I keep getting a HTTP error from the url you provided (It works in my browser, but not in this app) and tmp/calibre-feed isn't much help.

I'll have another go later on.

I guess you'll have to wait to see if the person who wrote the script stops by. Until then you'll have use the calibre download page like the rest of us.
