Moving tag mappings to new computer

Love the plugin! thank you for all your hard work..

How would I move my painstakingly curated tag mappings from one computer to another?

Is that even possible?

Is there an export/import functionality

All my googling has produced no answers :-(

Just copy the goodreads.json file from cone computer to the other. You will find that in your calibre configuration folder in the plugins subfolder, available from preferences -> misc

RE: Moving tag mappings to new computer

kiwidude, that is bloody fantastic! Thank you!

Can this file be edited?

I'm asking because it'll be easier to modify that file than backing out of updating the metadata, modifying the tag mapping and then going back into modifying the metadata (doing my entire collection, and it's kinda tedious)

Question about tag mapping can I say map anything containing Mysteries (i.e. *Mysteries*) to the Mystery column? Like can I use wildcards in the mapping process?

Are the tags download to just those listed in the mapping or will it also find others?

Thank you!

Nothing?

Do I need to include more info?

@del216 - yes the file can be edited, but you better be very careful with your edits or you will corrupt it, as the json format requires very specific commas, brackets, quotes etc. Exit vcalibre and make a backup of the file before you make any changes, do your edits and then start calibre.

@gabby98 - no wildcards are not supported. If you want a more "complete" set of tag mappings, refer to Doctor Ohhh's post on the first page of this thread.

thanks, if goodreads is my only tag source, will setting the mapping only look for those that match the map to add to my books or it pulls down everything no matter what?

If configured correctly you should only get tags from Goodreads. I have been using Goodreads exclusively for my tags for almost 3 years. My initial json file and instructions can be found here. I also point to another json file at the end of that post that maps a larger number of Goodreads tags. If you choose to edit the json file do so through the Plugins customization (Preferences - Plugins - Metadata Source plugins - select Goodreads - customize plugin).

Downloaded published date is 1 day behind

Hello. I'm having an issue downloading metadata using this plug-in and was wondering if I am doing something incorrectly. The published date that is downloaded is 1 day behind the date that is indicated on the Goodreads page.

Has this ever happened to anyone else? Is there some setting I am missing?

Thanks.

I think it's it's something to do with timezones, I'm not aware of any setting you can adjust and I don't understand the 'why is it so'.

Column shuffle

I'd like to use goodreads genre data, but I have the custom Genre column and my Tags column has non-genre stuff like "Novelette", "Anthology", "Read Next", etc.

Is it correct that there is nothing planned that will fix the limitation that keeps the Goodreads metadata plugin from using a custom Genre column?

I'm considering
  1. backing up everything,
  2. creating another custom column "Other Tags" or "Keywords" or ??,
  3. moving my Tags data to that column,
  4. getting rid of the Genre column, and
  5. using the Goodreads plugin for Genres in Tags.
It appears that bulk metadata search/replace will help me with step 3, moving data to another column.

Any flaws with this idea? Anyone done it?

Hi,
How can I display the goodreads rating as a number instead of stars?
Right now it rounds everything down so a 3.93 goodreads rating is turned into a 3 stars and I'd like it to show 3.93.

Thanks

This is not a Goodreads plugin issue it is the way calibre works. You might want to bring this up in a new thread.

bringing in unmapped tags

Love the plugin, and I'm pretty satisfied with the mapping I've got. I'm concerned that things on the goodreads in aren't perfectly static.

Is there any way of adding an option to download unmapped tags in some kind of a format that would flag them so I'd know I had something missing from my goodreads.json map?

Something like: #fiction > weird fiction# or grunmapped.Weird Ficton
