Can you tell us which Wikipedia page, and which section you are expecting to appear?

This is more or less the same process I do. Its annoying but it works and that's important! Its unfortunate there isn't a way to send a "bundle" to amazon instead of a single file.

To get it working what I do I send the book as normal, then on my PW/iPhone/iPad, I have the book, with last page read syncing working fine.

I then plug in my PW via USB, and use Mobi Meta Editor to check the ASIN that Calibre assigned it when I emailed it. I then drag the .azw from the PW documents folder into Calibre, and use your plugin to generate the XRay .asc file. I then put this in the .sdr folder, and XRay works fine on the PW, and Last Page Read Sync still works across my 3 devices.

I can't help thinking there must be an easier way!

Also, I noticed the following thing when looking at the XRay file, specifically when I choose "Wikipedia Info":



Note the weird:

ad> loc.2>


Also, wouldn't it be possible to the Shelfari and/or Wikipedia lookup automatically, based on the book title/ISBN/etc in Calibre?

Can it be manipulated to work on ipad kindle app ?

Kinda a pipe dream I guess, but just asking. But seems nice people are saying it is working in paperwhite.

Anyways here is file directory structure in kindle ipad app

kindle
Quote:
- Documents
- Kindle.app
- Library
- tmp
In Kindle -> Kindle.app
Quote:
-AnnotationModel.momd
-BookData.momd
-CommonJavaScripts
-KcrBookData.momd
-KindleCloudReader
-KindleExt
-LangData
-MetricData.momd
-SC_Info
-_CodeSignature
-acx
-de.lproj
-en.lproj
- and bunch of files with .proj attached after 2 alphabets (language files probably as they are named es,fr,it,ja,pt
-pt_PT.lproj
zh_CN.lproj

In Kindle -> Kindle.app -> KindleExt
Quote:
- EndActions.bundle
- TOSBundle.bundle
- XRAY.bundle
In Kindle -> Kindle.app -> KindleExt -> XRAY.bundle
Quote:
- Xray.storyboardc
- XrayPhone.storyboardc

If you're wondering about getting the X-Ray files to work on the iPhone/iPad app, the file goes in [Kindle App Folder]/Library/ACX.
File needs to be named XRAY.entities.ASIN.asc.

Has worked fine for me so far.

I don't have a folder by that name. So I need to create it right ?

Quote:

So whatever the .asc file is generated by the plugin output folder I need to enter the ASIN of the said book in the filename one by one. Correct ? And I just need to transfer just the .asc files only ?


Also the xray files aren't generating because of that alias requirement. I know these are necessary for plug in to function correctly in this version but when I point to just a blank text file (i don't need the aliases) it gives the same error. Do Alias files have to be of a particular file extension and have some text in a particular format ?


Sorry for the noobish questions.

Yes, you would take the .asc file and rename it. You should be able to create the ACX folder, mine already had one.

I can't answer your questions about the plugin though, I wrote the standalone application so that is what I use for mine.

Sorry about that, I'll do a new version that doesn't need the aliases file. I thought if you pointed it a text file that it would just work, it shouldn't mind about the extension.

New plugin version. I think the following list of changes is correct:

* Updated to 0.62 of KindleUnpack.
* Works OK if you don't specify an aliases filename.
* You can now leave the 'unpack directory' blank, and the plugin will create a temporary directory and delete it afterwards.

I know I must be doing something wrong but kinda at a loss as to what.

Code:
XRAY generation failed...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "calibre_plugins.xray_generator.xrayaction", line 209, in run
  File "calibre_plugins.xray_generator.xrayaction", line 252, in _generate_xray
  File "calibre_plugins.xray_generator.xrayaction", line 538, in rawml
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'C:\\Users\\vin\\Desktop\\0000 inbox\\inbox\\mobi7\\td1neocaltmpfmt.rawml'


I dunno why I thought maybe the error was occuring because I conversion settings were old type of mobi, converted them to new type and this was the result
Code:
Generating XRay for inbox
Loading Shelfari...
Loading Wikipedia...
Parsing book...

XRAY generation failed...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "calibre_plugins.xray_generator.xrayaction", line 209, in run
  File "calibre_plugins.xray_generator.xrayaction", line 252, in _generate_xray
  File "calibre_plugins.xray_generator.xrayaction", line 538, in rawml
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'c:\\users\\vin\\appdata\\local\\temp\\tmpdy3n_j\\mobi7\\ogksofcaltmpfmt.rawml'

There should be a 2-letter code at the bottom to indicate what went wrong.

Also, for the sake of it since the separate thread was merged, my stand-alone x-ray app is located here for anyone who would prefer to use that.

Big thank you to the three devs (web,cmd,plugin)

mjwilson - can you explain the aliases format, is it identical to the cmd version? It had complained when I tried importing an alias file I created for the cmd.

Is it (with the pipe):

John Smith|John,Johnny,J-Dog


Otherwise, it is a dream. It might be good to put out "XRAY File Complete.", or something in the log. It ends with "Parsing book..." which makes it appear to still be working.

Thank you again, its working great on my books, Love the loc's. DD

Another couple quick bug reports.

mjwilson - If you fail to enter a folder for the xray, it fails without notice. Would it be possible to default to the books location in the calibre library?

Ephemerality - I couldn't get the system to read a custom alias file. If I selected 'No' on generate alias file, it errored out. This is the case even if I was using a previously generated alias.
