Beta for calibre change to Qt5

FYI, I am not kiwidude and this isn't my plugin. But I'm trying to help out by porting some of the plugins I use regularly while kiwidude is busy.

Attached is a test version that should work for both the existing 1.X calibre and the upcoming 2.X version calibre. 2.x will use PyQt5 which requires changes to virtually all plugins.

This version needs to be tested with the existing calibre.

Brave souls to test with with the beta 2.X version would also be appreciated. Links to the 2.X beta and discussion of the transition (for plugins) can be see at: Attn plugin developers: calibre moving to Qt 5.

I updated the plugin and downloaded metadata from Goodreads. I also was able to customize the plugin without a hitch.

Thanks again.

Not sure whether this is the right place to ask - if it is not it would be great if you could point me in the right direction.

Is there any way to scrape the "first published" date from goodreads?
E.g. "Swords and Deviltry" https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/...s_and_Deviltry
The book was published in 2006 however the first time it was published was 1970 (attached screenshot).

So far I have been unable to ever get calibre to store the 1970 date and I always get 2006

I have tried selecting and unselecting "Use published date of "first edition" (from worldcat.org)" - it makes no difference.

Thank you

4. Rename your existing goodreads.json file to goodreads.json.org in case you feel the need to go back to it.
5. Place the new goodreads.json file in the plugins directory.
6. Start calibre

Now you can go to Preferences - Metadata download - select goodreads - click Configure selected source to see what is currently mapped for goodreads metadata downloadable tags.
I can't seem to find the calibre configuration directory on my Mac so I can add the expanded .json file. Can anyone help me figure out how to do this?

In Calibre, click Preferences > Miscellaneous > Open calibre configuration directory.

Goodreads Bookshelf Position

I asked this a few months back on another thread, but never got a response... maybe this time?

I want to grab the 'position' of the books on one of my Goodreads bookshelves and put that in a custom column in Calibre using the plugin. Can anyone tell me how I can do that? I can't seem to find the 'position' information to set up a rule for it.



Thanks in advance!

@Wampuscat - I cant answer your question, but I would think it might be better asked in the thread for this PI's [GUI Plugin] Goodreads Sync

AFAIK Metadata PI's don't download into custom columns

BTW - its been about 30 years since I last went on a Wampus hunt, and I didn't know you can cross 'em with cats

An new feature for Goodreads Plugin

Calibre has a feature that allows you to Add Book by ISDN. That's great when you have an ISDN which isn't always or even often. It would be great if the Goodreads plugin allowed you to Add Book by Goodreads ID. This would save me more time than you can imagine.

Can it be done?

Thanks
