[Metadata Source Plugin] Kobo Books

This plugin gets the metadata for books from the Kobo store.

Main Features
  • Can retrieve title, author, comments, publisher, publication date, series and tags.
  • The identifier used is "kobo". It will show in the details as "KoboBooks".

Special Notes:
  • It does not retrieve covers. The covers on the Kobo site are low resolution and better versions are available elsewhere.

Installation Notes:
  • Download the attached zip file and install the plugin as described in the Introduction to plugins thread.
  • Note that this is not a GUI plugin so it is not intended/cannot be added to context menus/toolbars etc.

Configuration:
  • Tags are created from the categories Kobo has for the books. These are shown as a hierarchy on the page. When creating the tags, there are three choices on how to use the categories:
    • Top level only - Only use the highest level category.
    • Hierarchy - Create dot seprated tags using each category hierarchy.
    • Individual tags - Create a tag for each category at each level.

Version History:
Spoiler:
Version 1.0.0 - 01 January 2015
  • Initial release
Attached Files
File Type: zip KoboBooks.zip (6.8 KB, 9437 views)

One little comment: In the Get new Plugins-list, this plugin is named Kobo Books (with blank space), which is different to KoboBooks. So it's still listed as "not installed" although it is installed...
