[GUI Plugin] Walk Search History

This plugin provides toolbar and keyboard shortcuts to moving forward and backward through your Calibre search history.

The intention is to offer a similar experience to a web browser of allowing you to "surf" back and forth between your search results. My primary usage is when I get "sidetracked" and want to run a query on another book/series/author and then most quickly return to the previous search results. Also upon restarting Calibre you can quickly restore your last search by hitting Alt+Left.

Main Features of v1.3.0:
  • Alt+Left Arrow to move back one search in your history
  • Alt+Right Arrow to move forward one search in your history
  • Search history maintained independently of that displayed in the combo dropdown
  • Additional history list displayed in toolbar dropdown menu
  • Ability to clear the search history
  • Shortcuts and other preferences customisable in a configuration dialog

Special Notes:
  • Requires Calibre 0.8.18 or later

Installation Notes:
  1. Download the attached zip file and install the plugin/restart Calibre/add to context menu as described in the Introduction to plugins thread.
  2. If you wish to customise the keyboard shortcuts from their default, you can do so within the preferences dialog in the same screen you add the plugin. Expand the "User Interface Action plugins" section and select the "Walk Search History" plugin on this list. Click the "Customise plugin" button and type the text for your alternate shortcut key combinations.

Beta for calibre change to Qt5

FYI, I am not kiwidude and this isn't my plugin. But I am 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 of the plugin has version number 1.201.0.

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.

@davidfor - working fine with V1.201 portable

But next and previous do not work with properly with 1.44. Next seems to jump from first to last and Previous from last to first. Reinstalled the 'current official' version and it works as it should.

BTW thanks for using a distinctive version number
