COPS and BicBucStriim developers: option to read book in browser with out download
First of all, thanks for developing these great tools. I am using on my Synology server, and it works well.
However, I don't see the option to read the book within the browser. I often need to refer to a book (or textbook), or read from different places. but don't want to download it every time or keep a copy and manage it everywhere I go.
Is it possible to write an extend to either COPS or BicBucStriim so that ebooks can be read within the browser without download? Are there anyone else would like to have this function?
There are open source tools already exist for display ePub and PDF in browser:
PDF.js (PDF viewer that is built with HTML5)
Appreciate your thoughts!!

I can only speak for COPS. I recently added an Epub reader into COPS (using Monocle not epub.js). You'll have to download the latest github as I've not released it officially.
A user has contributed the pdf reader but I've not had enough time to merge it for now.

Sorry for the late reply. Yes, for BicBucStriim these features are on the agenda, in a post-1.2 version. There were already tests with epub.js, a while ago, but with mixed results. I'll have to check both again.
It's not only about reading the books in the browser. Once you offer that readers will require more: bookmarks, quotes, notes etc. The stuff everybody, including me of course, likes to have in a reading app.
