you can use the Java Mobi Metadata Editor to edit metadata quickly.

subfolders handling is planned for a future version, I don't want to add automatic download though, because I'd like to keep it as simple as possible (downloading will mean adding a bunch of sources, keeping them updated and a number of other issues that don't belong to a comic converter). If there's someone that want to get Mangle's download code and create a standalone manga downloader it would be nice, by the way!

not for now, unless you're using the MacOS droplet that wraps the entire process into an AppleScript.
I'm building a cross-platform GUI that will wrap all the steps in a - I hope - easier and more transparent interface.

the "Personal" banner is applied to documents that do not have an ASIN recognized by Amazon. Calibre can add a fictitious one, but I've yet to discover how it does. Planned for future version.

if you tell me which are the filename issues I can work on adding them... you already can specify title with -t option.

That would be fantastic. It's good to know I'm doing things the right way - I'm on Windows.

Also, that would be a great addition.

As for the filename issues, they are probably going to be solved with this -t switch that I didn't spot first time around. I will give this a go first and report back.

Thanks for all this work. I was marvelling today at how good comics can look on the KT screen - it's so crisp and large with the optimisation and cropping (I assume that's playing a part) that I'm barely using panel view even though it's there!

Now we just need a program that calculates the number of letters in "swashbuckler". This is becoming a daily source of mathematical shame for me...

what do you mean?
If the question is "Will Paperwhite/Touch ever support CBZ?" I assume the correct answer is "No, it's not going to.", although I am not Amazon
Anyway, KCC is able to convert CBZ, CBR, RAR, ZIP, PDF and image folders into Kindle Paperwhite/Touch/NT/Keyboard-readable MOBIs with Panel View - on the K3 they work even better than CBZ (you do not have to press F to go fullscreen, and you will not have some drawing glitches switching device sleep/unsleep).

The -t option did work, thank you.

I used the Java Mobi Metadata Editor, as advised by Thomass, to add in an ASIN, but this didn't cure the problem. It's a minor niggle in the grand scheme of things though, eh?

Thanks very much for 1.50, I'll take a gander tonight.

For people who, like I, didn't bookmark the location of this wonder, it can be found here:

Here you are, first version with a bare metal GUI!
You can download the builded app from https://dl.dropbox.com/u/16806101/Ki...er_osx_2.1.zip

As always, feedback is greatly appreciated

Great news! Being pretty ignorant about Python (I hope to change that soon), it looks like the zip is compiled for OSX only, not windows. Is that right?

I'm still working away happily on the cmd line version anyway.

Thanks again.

Great! I've got a big batch to do before a long journey in a few days so I've got plenty of guinea pigs to chuck at it!

2.3 is out, ePub lives!

Sorry for the delay but I found building redistributable python apps in Windows is a pain in the *** ;(
In the meantime, though, I went further, so now KCC build ePub2.0-valid files, then you can choose to give them to kindlegen or to stay with them alone (e.g. if you own a Kobo :P )

The GUI should make all the dirty work on your behalf, providing you have kindlegen.exe in your PATH (e.g. you can copy it to c:\Windows\).

Feedback appreciated!
