Coming back to my earlier comment, is there a reason why some of my books are not showing up in collections on my Kindle? When I reopen Kindelabra and look at the collections I've already made, these books are showing up as part of said collections. Yet, on my device, they are showing up as non-collection books, even though I have my Home screen set to sort by Collection. Any ideas or suggestions why this is happening?

I too would love to know but it must be something with the books and the kindle because neither of the three collection manager programs works, although it states they are in a collection on the kindle they do not appear to be in one.

Unable to add Calibre books to the collections

Hello,

I'm trying to add some books to my collection created using Kindelabra and I'm getting this errors:

Code:
$ python2.7 Kindelabra.py 
Loading documents.............
Loading pictures
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "Kindelabra.py", line 302, in add_file
    asin = self.kindle.files[filehash].asin
KeyError: 'ff9e1bda761c7ecd877826c7f85dabc351780cf7'
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "Kindelabra.py", line 302, in add_file
    asin = self.kindle.files[filehash].asin
KeyError: '301bdeccdab9ec58251ba2bba5a62fc7f4b321ce'
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "Kindelabra.py", line 302, in add_file
    asin = self.kindle.files[filehash].asin
KeyError: '4f46ce16ec80a259f7ea9c245c44e10271c3ea8c'
Could be something related with the firmware: 3.0.2 (553210206)

Any solution?

Thanks!

I have found that running the program twice eliminates the "stragglers" that jump out of my collections. I'm not sure why this fixes the problem, but it does.

How do I get the collections on my Kindle?

First - very nice piece of work - including the installation batch file.

Now, what is it I'm not "getting"? I started Kindelabra, pointed it to my Kindle & created some new collections.
I saved the collections, exited Kindelabra & ejected my Kindle - no change.

I reconnected my Kindle, restarted Kindelabra & resaved, exited Kindlabra & ejected the Kindle - no change.

I can see collections.json, as well as backups, in the system folder.

So - what am I doing wrong?

Did you restart your Kindle ?
It needs to re-read the json file.

Hi,

I haven't tried out the program yet, I am still installing it. I still have one remark on the installation - if your internet connection is via proxy, curl is not able to download the files.
I do not know how often this happens - as far as I see nobody complaint about this, so I not sure that a patch is needed.
However if someone needs to fix it - add to all lines in the bat file that start with curl, the "-x myproxy:myport" option.
E.g.:
curl http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.7/python-2.7.msi -o python.msi
becomes:
curl -x proxy:8080 http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.7/python-2.7.msi -o python.msi

Regards

can the collections change take effect immediately? or have any method that allow kindle to reload the collection.json file without restart?

Hey,
I registered just to thank you for a great app. I was looking all over for a easier way to organize my kindle, and this works perfectly.

Using Linux Mint 10.10

New collections.json from scratch?

Given that collections.json is presumably a JSON file ;-) is it possible to create one from scratch? I have a Kindle but don't plan to register it. I've got TONS of Linux / FOSS documents, most of which are PDF's. I want to load the Kindle up with those, and have no intention of hooking into Amazon. But collections would be nice.

AFAIK, even a 'from scratch' json collections file won't do the trick on an unregistered device (I may be wrong, though, so you're welcome to try).

I found a lead at:

http://whitneyindustries.com/b/?p=17

And upon reboot, I can see a collection, but it appears to be empty and nothing can be moved into it. I can rename it or delete it. I may have to cave to the corporate machine (unlikely) or live with a very long list of PDFs.

And for those who are curious, the format is much simpler than I thought (assuming it's correct):

Code:
{"collection name@en-US":
   {"items":["*sha1","*sha1","*sha1",...],
    "lastAccess":longInt},
 "collection name@en-US":
   {"items":["*sha1","*sha1","*sha1",...],
    "lastAccess":longInt}
}
where collection name should be pretty obvious, sha1 is the hex string for the SHA1 hash of each file in the collection, and longInt is a long integer representation of the date. The Kindle overwrites this. The Python program sets it to zero initially, but when I fetched it back after uploading it and rebooting, the Kindle had changed it.
