[Metadata Source Plugin] ANOBII (& inmondadori.it)

ANOBII - Version 0.4.3 -BETA!! august, 3 2014 by Pr. BarnArt.

This plugin is for using ANOBII as a metadata source.
It is made for italian books, and looks for them at ANOBII.com.
It was based on the Barnes work by Grant Drake and my own BOL_NL-plugin.
Thanks to Nephtys59 and Dave9000 for comments.

Main Features of ANABII 0.4.3
  • retrieve isbn/ean
  • retrieve author (no contributors/translators), title.
  • retrieve comments, cover and publisher.
  • option to retrieve comments from inmondadori.it
  • option to retrieve cover from inmondadori.it
  • option search and retrieve output in CJK characters , p.e. Chinese (request from and thanks to Civa?)

Special Notes:
  • ANOBII first looks for a match on the isbn/ean-number, if that is know.
  • Otherwise it takes the author's name en the exact booktitle.
  • option to retrieve comments from inmondadori.it
  • option to retrieve cover from inmondadori.it
    inmondadori.it use eannumber, without the correctionnumber(last one)
    so for inmondadori.it the isbn must be found on ANOBII

  • requires calibre 0.9.0 or higher.

known issues /to do:
  • no filtering results for p.e. audiobooks/check titles / multiple editions yet
  • no multiple authors yet
  • no rating yet
  • presume large cover, in stead of small
  • presume full description at Anobii, not only a small one
  • isbn search gives the same result as searching on title/author
This is a beta, so in develop-mode, please comment if you get false results

Update-info 0.4.3
  • Porting to Qt5 for Calibre 2.0
    ( pls inform me, if you get no results or errors. I don't use it myself - I am dutch;-)

Installation Notes:
  • Download the attached zip file and install the plugin as described in the Introduction to plugins thread.
  • You can configure the plugin within Calibre.
    Here you can select to retrieve cover and/or comments from inmondadori.it
    Here you can also set the option for CJK-characters

I am no expert at importing plug-ins.
But you can install the plugin in 2 ways:

1. within calibre->preferences->plugins->get new plugins .

2. download the zip file in this thread, and use:
calibre_>preferences->plugins->load plugin from file.

I don't know which way you took?
You could try the other, to be sure.
(the file you used could be damaged, or renamed).

Till now there were no issues reported like this, dispite it has been download over 300 times.

I see you are using linux? which version of calibre ?

The plugin works fine with Anobii but with BOL.IT no book description (synopsis) and covers always with BOL logo, nothing else.
Using latest version of Calibre 0.8.14 for Windows.

Thanks for your reply, only that way I know there is something to fix
(because I dont read italian books :-)

Can you give me some titles and writers , which gave no result. So I can take a look how to fix.
I used Un segreto non fa rumore from Sofie Laguna to check.

By the way I already fixed the diacritics problem, that will be in the next release.

I like to fix the problem, but nobody seems to have italian titles that gives no good result at BOL.it or they don't bother at all
btw: I need the names, or an isbn-number, not the epubs itself.

Sorry for delay in answering, here the example of a failed search:

Title: Le Luci Di Atlantide
Author: Marion Zimmer Bradley

Cover: only the image with BOL.it symbol
Description: neither from Anobii nor from Bol.it

But the book is there:
http://www.bol.it/libri/Le-luci-di-A...a978887819582/
http://www.anobii.com/books/Le_luci_...f3c26db6430e1/

If you need more examples let me know.

Thanks Nephtys59 for your comments.

It seems that ANOBII resturns all the books from an author when you search for author and title, and not just the title you are looking for.
I made a fix, so please test.
If not please comment again

New Update available v.0.2.0.

It is still a BETA, so please comment if you get any false results or if tehre are problems with accents/diactritics.
I don't speak nore read Italian, so I am dependent of italian users.

Special Thanks to Nephtys59.
