Hi,
I would like to create a plugin for automatically downloading new issues from issuu.com and sending emails with the PDFs to kindle.
issuu.com has an API for getting issues: http://developers.issuu.com/api/ and bookmarks.
However, each user will need to store their API key/secret in the plugin settings, as the API allows authentication for (allmost) all calls.
Do you think the plugin will be useful to you, and do you have any security concerns?

Tag Cleaner need

Quote:
Originally Posted by kiwidude View Post
@schuster -[*]I mentioned on another thread an idea for a "Tag Cleaner". It would use a similar approach to that in the Goodreads Metadata download plugin of defining a mapping between input tags and tags you want to use in your library. You would have a gui allowing you to customise and control which tags map to each and discard any you do not have a mapping for. It would work across metadata sources (including the ability to remap the Goodreads tags) as you would do it as a separate step after your normal Ctrl+D download. So if you are frustrated with getting a dozen variants of "sci-fi, scifi, science fiction" this would automatically resolve them rather than manually retyping the tags yourself.[/LIST]
I heartily second this idea for Calibre. I have about 1,200 books in my library and have just painstakingly rationalized the over 400 tags downloaded with the metadata down to a useful 120. Having done that I now obviously want to keep the list clean. Ideally the add books and edit metadata code should check incoming tags against a user maintained database of tags (an extension of the tag manager?) and 1) map incoming tags to p referenced tags via the database, 2) discard incoming tags that are in the database but do not map to a new tag, and 3) alert the user to new tags that are not in the database with appropriate options on how to deal with them. The last item might have intelligent suggestions like if some variant of "SciFi" comes in that is not in the database, it might spot the similarity to "SciFi" and optionally add a new mapping item to the database. As noted in the original post, this is similar, but more expansive than, the GoodReads plugin.

If I ever learn Python, I would look into it myself. The latest language I have learned since my assembler language and Fortran days (yes I am an old fart) is Visual Basic.

Please and thanks.

When sending a book via email the title and author are included in the text body of the email. Is there a way or plugin so that the metadata comments are also included so the receiver can see a summary when they receive the book?

tmx to bilingual ebook

Hello:
It would be interesting a plugin to convert tmx align text to ebook in several ways, 2 columns, phrase by phrase , or alternating pages.
As tmx is a xml format transforming mustn't be quite difficult I hope, and for learning languages it would be wonderful.
Thank you

Automatic Book Classifier

I'd like a plugin that classifies books according to a Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) or Library of Congress Classification (LCC) based on a given title and/or author. This could be done through OCLC's Classify tool. The documentation for the API is available here.

I have neither the adequate programming experience or skills with Calibre plugins to be able to do this myself, but would be motivated to give it a try if someone could help me out. I know a fair amount of Python, but have never modified Calibre before. Thanks!

I didn't know where else to put this...Can the "Match this book to...." option be made to do a preliminary search. Most times search by what is there comes up with a prelim list that has what you need and this could save a few clicks.

Hello. I'm a new participant so I apologize if this is the wrong place for this.

What I wanted to request was a plugin that would add speed reading functionality to Calibre. Speed reading apps have become pretty popular. They flash a single word at you, at an adjustable wpm that enable you to learn to ingest information faster by silencing your internal dialogue. While this is not an ideal way to read all forms of text it is highly useful for some. I'd love to have this in Calibre so I don't have to open another program or webs site and copy text over.

Thank you for considering my idea!

You can use any (format supporting)viewer you want with Calibre.

2 ways:

1) Preference: Behavior: (right column) Use internal Viewer: remove the TICK for those you ONLY want the OS to support.

2) Use the Open With Plugin and Create a 'Speed reader' app entry for the app you use.
