Highlight, Annotate and Sync from iDevice / iPad ?

I know iBooks does highlight and provide basic notes / annotation abilities for ePub.

I'd like to be able to sync/ maintain them -

The Annotations plugin fetches highlights and notes from Marvin, an ios ePub reader.

Calibre Evernote plugin

I think most of you heard about Evernote. This is great service, but there is no option to export your notes (preferably to ePub). Fortunately Evernote provides API which is very good (Python is supported). Evernote notes are basically written as HTML with few Evernode-specific tags. I wrote simple Evernote to XHTML converter, just to check is it possible to write evernote2epub converter. I'm not much into calibre plugins developing (does calibre provide library to make an epub from few xhtml files?), so I want to ask if someone want to provide such plugin. Idea is that plugin would download and convert to epub all notes with specific tag, e.g. epub on user request. Plugin should also check if notes were updated (on user request). It's easy since Evernote Note object has last edition date.

Below is my simple converter. It was tested with Evernote sandbox and Linux. Calibre plugin will require developer key, but it's free (you need register to obtain key). Converter is saved in evernote-sdk-python/sample/client/ directory. If you have any question I will be happy to answer. Thanks.

desperately need a plugin to change the encoding of a epub.
Basically, my main need is to convert simplified Chinese book to traditional Chinese book.
that would be GB2312-> BIG5 or UTF8
Hope, someone can help

Hi, I'd appreciate (and donate for) a plugin to help managing CBR comics collections. Specifically, converting CBR (RAR archives) to CBZ (ZIP archives), to allow editing them without third-party software, and merging CBZ files into one omnibus file, similar to the EPUBmerge plugin.

Hi there,

I'm new to calibre and updated it today. Haven't worked much with it yet, but what I couldn't find definitely is a plug-in to handle DRM-Files which I'm owning and can read on my FrontLight.

I'm not able to install Adobe Digital Editions on my Computer and had a look out for alternatives and found Calibre and it works wonderfull with the DRM-free files. But I want to authorize myself, to handle my bought eBooks on my PC as well and Authorize my PC with my Adobe-ID ... So I would really appreciate if any of you who's able to do so would write a plug-in to handle DRM-Files lawfully.

Detailed DRM-removal advice it not permitted at MobileRead.

I can suggest that you should google Apprentice Alf's Blog.

It would be great to have a support for google books - to synchronize with items in google books & to find a match in the library.

rationale: I am using google books to do a research on book of specific category, so sometimes it's good to know if it's not in my local library already.

I'd like to see a Plugin for manga like a manga viewer I don't really want a different app to manage my manga collection. Calibre needs this plugin! I'd also want it to separate the manga from the books/novels I wouldn't want them lumped in together.

Look at these to get an idea of what I'm thinking =)

This is already a feature, tag your books appropriately and use the Virtual Libraries feature.

A plugin that uploads and syncs the Calibre library with the newly announced Personal Upload feature in Google Books (http://www.engadget.com/2013/05/15/g...-user-uploads/) would be really great.

I don't know much about python or the workings of the plugin system, but here's something that I'd like to see: A Self-Voicing Plugin that would enable blind users to easily access the UI.

I am aware that Calibre uses Qt, which is known for its incompatibility with conventional screen reading programs such as JAWS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JAWS_(screen_reader)) and VoiceOver(http://www.apple.com/accessibility/voiceover/). My hope would be to use something like pyttsx (a cross-platform python library for text-to-speech http://github.com/parente/pyttsx to allow this excellent program to speak for itself.

For this to work, the plugin would need to be able to access the menus, text boxes, preferences, etc. and would need to be able to output sound, and optimally contain controls for speech pitch and speech rate.

Sorry if this isn't possible. I just know that this would help blind users get into this amazing application!

Edit: Thanks, itimpi for the clarification. Oh well...

Plugins in Calibre do not have this sort of capability as that is not the level they are plugged into Calibre..

The only way this could work is to get something that works with Qt and you said that is unlikely.
