Negative publishing year

There's a patch that allow negative publishing years. (That require a proposed calibre patch.)

Hi,

I'm using Goodreads metadata plugin version 1.1.2 with calibre 0.9.1.

The plugin does seem to ignore the edition language data coming in from goodreads, my local book linked with http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...n-der-ewigkeit always gets switched to "Language: English" upon metadata sync. This happens with other books as well, this one is just the latest example I worked with.

Regards,
Hakan

@razorsoup - yeah it looks like the website has changed which has broken that scenario. I will push a new version soon.

@hakan42 - this plugin currently does not support the "languages" metadata field which is why you see no value being set for it to German. I will look to add support for this in the next version also.

The new version seems to be working. Thanks for the update.

Thank you for the quick fix, a short test shows that german seems to work (at least with the one book I tested with, http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17157187 ).

Turkish seems still to be broken, though. Could you please have a look at the output / parsing for the book http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11977940 ?

I am not surprised Turkish isn't working. I forgot to mention above that I only put in support for a handful of languages the same as the Amazon plugin does that I copied code from. Unfortunately it is a bit painful for how you assign languages to books in calibre, as every language name has to be mapped to a "code". So any languages I don't have a mapping in place for won't get handled. And since I don't have a list of languages that Goodreads supports (nor the inclination to spend hours trying to divine them and their associated mappings) it is what it is at the moment.

I can add more languages to it on request, but I don't really want to have to do this frequently. So right now it has mappings for:

English
French
Italian
German
Spanish
Japanese
Portuguese

You have also requested Turkish.

If there are any other languages people want to see supported from the Goodreads site, please post a reply along with a link to an example book on Goodreads that I can test it with. Perhaps in a week or so depending on the rate of replies I will publish an update to the plugin with support for them.

Hi I would appreciate you help. I would like to create a column that will show which edition of goodreads book I am linked to (ebook, Kindle Edition, Paperback etc.) It's probably really easy I just can't seem to make it work.

Thanks for your help

@tarisea - there is no way to do that with this plugin as calibre has no column to contain that information to return it from the plugin.

I don't understand. Under Switch Goodreads Edition there is a column for it. Why can't that column translate to a column in your library?

Because that is a completely different plugin - that is the Goodreads Sync plugin which is a GUI plugin, and does not have the same constraints that the *metadata* Goodreads plugin has, which is this one. Metadata plugins can only download a small finite set of data columns.

So is there some way this can be done through the Goodreads Sync plugin?

Not with the current functionality in the plugin, no. In theory it could be possible to extend it to do so. Though it opens up a can of worms I am not sure I want to deal with. Right now Goodreads Sync is about syncing *user data* about a book, not metadata. If I support pulling details like format, what about all the other fields like pages, published, title, authors, description, etc etc... And it would be a one way sync for those fields, obviously you cannot upload them to Goodreads.

Not saying never, just needs some careful thought.

Firstly, thank you kiwidude for this plugin and the Barnes and Noble plugin! They have made my metadata management much easier!

I registered to post a bug I encountered with the Goodreads plugin. When scraping metadata from a book with many authors, such as this one, the scraping successfully gets all the authors but also includes the "more..." and "less..." text. Just a minor issue that I figured I should report.

Thanks again for your plugins!
