SPCS: Simple PHP Content Server for Calibre

Simple PHP Content Server is a PHP based content server that reads directly from the Calibre metadata.db file.

I created this as a simple interface to get books out of my library without having to run Calibre all the time. It was also to get around some of the download issues to my Android device.

Features include:
  • Support in most major desktop, mobile and Kindle browsers
  • Built-in multi-user login functionality allowing for direct book download to Kindle and Android devices
  • “Send-to” functionality to support Whispersync with Amazon’s Personal Documents feature
  • No need to have Calibre running
  • Sortable results
  • Cover display

Check out the SPCS Page for more details, more screenshots, installation instructions and download: http://nowsci.com/spcs/

Please use this thread to report any bugs/issues/etc. I'll likely open it up on GitHub, too.

To-Do:
  • Multi-format book download/send
  • Administration console for users
  • Full security test

Thanks,
Ben

Github access?

I've been playing around with v0.04 and I've hit a few bugs and things I had to change, in order to get it running on my Mac. Are you able to post the source on Github? I'd love to clone it and make my changes in a way that others can benefit from.

I've not used Github other than to grab source before, but I'll look into setting up an account and publishing it there.

Thanks,
