I now have a semi-functional PrcConverter.py but it does not load the resulting .imp onto the reader automatically yet!

My revised PrcConverter.py is:
Code:
# v0.1 - Inital plugin idea by ashkulz; Adapted by nrapallo (Sept 2008)
import impserve
import os, subprocess

class PrcConverter(impserve.ProxyResponse):
    def get_response(self, url, headers, data):
        #debug statement (TODO: also check if .ext is .prc/.pdb/.mobi)
        print headers 
        if not 'application/octet-stream' in headers['Content-Type']:
            return headers, data
	print "0\n"  #debug statement

        open('input.prc', 'wb').write(data)
	print "1\n"  #debug statement
        # using a command to convert .prc to .imp 'on the fly'... copied "C:\Program Files\Mobi2IMP\bin\Mobi2IMP.exe" to impserve directory
        if not subprocess.call(['Mobi2IMP', '--cover', '--out', 'output', 'input.prc']) or not os.path.isfile('output.imp'):
            return headers, data
 	print "2\n"  #debug statement
        headers['Content-Type'] = 'application/x-softbook'
        data = open('output.imp', 'rb').read()
        os.remove('input.prc')
        os.remove('output.imp')
	print "3\n"  #debug statement
        return headers, data
Excuse the print / debug statements for now. They will be removed when this plugin works!

This is the plugin debug log produced:
Code:
Loaded plugin: AdjustHtml.py

Note that I placed a copy of Mobi2IMP.exe from the bin directory created by the Mobi2IMP installer package. The plugin did manage to save the input.prc and create the output.imp, but didn't load it "on-the-fly". (See attached .prc & .imp)

Notice above that Mobileread returns a Content-Type of 'application/octet-stream' when requesting the final .prc file. It has the filename there too so the plugin should, in the future, check the .ext to make sure we are doing a valid conversion.

Also, it seems that Mobileread uses a mimetype of 'application/x-mobipocket-ebook' for .prc download requests per the more detailed log report created prior to the one above. (See below text file)

Talking WOW, wow, wow, I got .prc to .imp working seemlessly!

My suggestion is that you prepare for the new feature by having impserve download incompatible files (like ZIP and PRC) to the content folder.

I am a bit excited about this .prc to .imp plugin. It works seemlessly now. May be a bit crude as python coding goes, but it works flawlessly!

A great suggestion from Nate, turns out to be a great convenience to ALL ebookwise 1150 users (and the few REB1200 users here).

There are two versions of this plugin for impserve; EBW1150 users will want the 'PrcConverter1150.py'; REB1200 users the 'PrcConverter1200.py'. Don't intermix. You'll need a copy of Mobi2IMP.exe (dos command) to make this work; see here for Mobi2IMP-9.4b-dos.zip.

Instructions:
=========
1. For EBW1150 users, download the 'PrcConverter1150.py.txt' and rename 'PrcConverter1150.py'.
2. Place the renamed file in your plugins directory (under your ebookutils/impserve directories).
3. That's it! Download all the non-DRM'ed mobipocket/.prc/.pdb you want to read, onto your reader, using one-step.

Enjoy and pass this info onto a friend... Native .imp downloading and now .prc download as well! WOW, wow, wow....

p.s. I also include BELOW updated versions of the AdjustSmallestFont.py for each reader (EBW1150 and REB1200).

This is fantastic! done by nrapallo ... looks like my evil plan to get more people involved via plugins is beginning to bear fruits As of now, we have 3 (count them, 3) plugins written by nrapallo: AdjustHtmlSize, PrcConverter, and an unreleased AdjustImageSize which reduces the image size for saving low-memory situations on the 1150.

I've got some new infrastructure enhancements planned in impserve which I plan to implement after this weekend [till which I'm busy in real life]:
  1. add support for ebook detection in impserve
  2. serve only relevant [i.e. 1150/1200] IMPs in book list using ebook detection
  3. allow the plugins to access which ebook is currently detected
  4. refactor the plugin system so that a plugin can take over the whole request and redo the current "local" processing in terms of that
  5. verify working of plugins in the win32 binary distribution
One more idea which I've had for a plugin is to insert a special link on all pages and on clicking it would go to a server page allowing one to create an IMP consisting of all the pages read till then, and name the book. The use-case would be simple: say you're reading a article on the net [or a series of articles], you "save" them one-by-one and when you're finished, click on generate and presto! you have a ready-made IMP which contains everything you just read till now for offline reading [admittedly, this one would be a much more complex plugin].

Excllent. Now if someone could just get .cbz downloads working, my younger daughter (who has my 1150) would probably sing and dance all night.

Well, maybe not-- she'd be too busy downloading and reading manga.

If you have any web references for .cbz that I can test with, it would help. I was planning to do a CBR/CBZ Converter, but thought it wouldn't be useful...

I just finished a PDF Converter using PDFRead's dos command to facilitate the actual conversion from .pdf to .imp. It works best with smaller sized documents.

I also have finished a DJVU Converter, but it's not easy finding direct .djvu ebooks to download from. Most 'ebooks' are wrapped around a html re-director. I did find some DJVU Editions here (DjVu BUNDLED) and downloaded Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility here http://www.leoyan.com/djvu-editions..../Download.djvu (only had it convert first 5 of 200+ pages though).

While it's nice to have the Converters, they do take a long time and could just as easily be converted offline using PDFRead on the computer and then transferring the resulting .imp, after the conversion, to the ebook reader.

Oh, well, it's good to have a choice...

p.s. these new plugins will be uploaded shortly...

cbz is really easy. It is just a zip file containing images that are referenced in alphabetical order. The images themselves can be jpg, gif, or png so they should come across ok to be converted for eb-1150 use. I would expect a tool to simply unzip, size the images, and place them in order with each on a page. An option might be to do landscape and split the images in half for larger pages.

That's exactly what PDFRead does!

The CBZ plugin will just call PDFRead, but PDFRead will create the .imp. This is the same method used for the .pdf and .djvu plugins that will be upload here.

My system won't load PrcConverter.py...

The other plugin loads ok, though.

Is there an index.html file available somewhere to help testing all those nice new features?

Bravo to you, ashkulz and others for those nice programs!

Robert:

Are using the windows version of impserve? It currently doesn't load the new plugins that I released; only uses the ones that came with it. - EDIT: works now in version 0.5!

Ashkulz is looking into it.

A temporary solution would be to install python 2.5 and run the python scripts instead of using the windows version. I got the plugins to work using the python script (run.py) but not the windows version .

I think ashkulz may be releasing a new version soon so hopefully this part gets fixed and users can start to enjoy the benefits this program has to offer.

The index.html I use is located in this post http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...855#post246855 and is in the attachment called content.zip.

Have fun!

Good, this is what I have been using so far. Many crashes have occured, but some links work, sort of, including my home page at http://www.astrosurf.com/soubie

Bug report: I have found improper mapping of accented characters, where a lowcase e acute is represented by an upcase Egrave. Visible e.g. at news.google.fr.

Amitiés, Robert

I should receive my new Asus eee PC 900 tomorrow... more programming ahead... Guess I'll have to draw Delphi from the mothballs...

Not sure this is known, I discovered this feature a couple of hours ago; when the EBW1150 hangs with a data fault and a register dump, if one presses the on/off switch for a long time, a "Reset" button may appear, superimposed on the dump; clicking this prevents you to have to use the reset switch. Does not work allways, though.

Actually, you don't need to hold the on/off button; the "reset" button will appear anyways after 10-15 sec. (But, if you WANT to hold the on/off button, that's OK too... )

See my proposed solution to this problem here.
