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).
