Exclamation Workflows to use Calibre with iOS Apps: Good Reader-PDFs, Marvin-epub, Kindle-mobi?

Workflows to use Calibre with iOS Apps: Good Reader-PDFs, Marvin-epub, Kindle-mobi?

For iBooks Calibre can do an export to iTunes and iOS device can be synced.
For Marvin - it used the Calibre OPDS Server. (maybe drag & drop can work??)

If one was to use Calibre to the CENTRAL book manager for all formats, what are the workflows that can and are being used to MANAGE books for the different iOS apps which are the best for those given Book formats.

Or is this all going to be MANUALLY DONE?

Thoughts?

You can do most/all/more of what the calibre GUI provides, using calibre's console commands.

You can use the scripting tools that are available for your operating system, For OS/X Applescript comes mind, several other are mentioned in here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1...6-applications

Some Calibre users don't use the GUI at all, they use the cli interface exclusively. They access the cli commands via bash scripts and even .bat files, and that's where their workflow automation is expressed.

Where, who, how? Examples? Anyone of these using some of these workflows in Windows Calibre CLI? I'd love to see some automation samples.

Have people shared their scripts etc. It would be a good place to start and not have to reinvent the wheel.
