[GUI Plugin] QuarantineAndScrub

[GUI Plugin] QuarantineAndScrub


This plugin is actually a Calibre add-on, not just a normal plugin. You need this plugin if you frequently add ebooks with malformed and misplaced author, title, series, series index, and tags, and want them automatically and effortlessly corrected ("scrubbed"). It saves an enormous amount of time and energy correcting trashed out metadata. Refer to the instructions, attached.


Main Features:

This add-on holds your ebooks with dirty (i.e., malformed and misplaced) metadata, and then scrubs the author, title, series, series index and tags. Afterwards, you move the scrubbed ebooks to your "Pristine Library". Refer to the User Instructions, which includes a workflow diagram. See the Version History for specifics of functionality additions.


Installation Notes:

1. Easy to install. Download the QuarantineAndScrub_official_library_to_extract_ren ame_to_zip.jar file, place it in the parent directory of your Calibre libraries, rename the extension from .jar to .zip, and "Extract (it) Here" automatically into its special Calibre Library subdirectory, QuarantineAndScrub .

The plugin icons will not respond to clicks unless the current Calibre library name begins with this exact phrase:
"QuarantineAndScrub".

The special Q&S library contains the add-on's metadata.db and metadata_db_prefs_backup.json files. Both of these files are specific to this add-on.

The jobs check to ensure that the custom sqlite objects in the Q+S metadata.db are as they should be. The uuid of the library is also confirmed. Any discrepancies result in job termination. You may not use this plugin with any Calibre library other than the one "Extracted Here" from the QuarantineAndScrub_official_library_to_extract_ren ame_to_zip.jar file. That is why this plugin is also an add-on. Refer to the User Instructions.

2. Calibre > Preferences > Plugins > Load Plugin from File and load the attached zip file. Save your work and restart Calibre.

3. Calibre > Preferences > Toolbar > Main Menu Toolbar and then add the icon for QuarantineAndScrub. Save your work. Close the window.


Execution Notes:

Refer to the submenu named “Read Q&S Instructions".


Special Notes:

Requires Calibre version 2.5 or later.

The User Instructions should be read prior to using this add-on. The "Trial and Error" approach to using Q&S can be frustrating, to say the least, because there is a lot of functionality "to try". Be wise: read the User Instructions before using Q&S. It is 42 pages in length for a reason.

Note that 99.9% of Calibre users do not need Q&S, and should not install it.

Remember to always run the "Update Version" job on the menu after upgrading to any new version of Q&S. It adds new tables and views, plus additional Global Authors used for Author validation.

Send suggestions and questions directly to the developer by clicking the submenu icon named "PM Suggestions to Developer". You may also click here.

New Release: Version 1.5.3 - 10 October 2014

The latest release is: Version 1.5.3 - 10 October 2014 New Purge Work Data Job; New Scrubbing Rules; bug fixes

IMPORTANT: The Index that Calibre uses to determine if your installed plugin has an update may lag by a long time between the time I upload the latest release and it gets updated. The Index process is tedious and burdonsome on the Admins and not at all designed for frequent updates. So, ALWAYS check this thread to determine if there is a newer release available than you have. If so, please download it manually.

In summary, do not trust what Calibre says about what the latest release of QuarantineAndScrub is. Always check the OP.

This plugin gets tested thoroughly prior to uploading on a Dell Laptop (Windows 7) with a test library of 600+ books with mostly malformed and misplaced metadata, and a Dell Touch-Screen 23" all-in-one (Windows 8.1) with a test library of 200+ of both clean and unclean books. However, you-know-what happens; when it does, I fix it immediately and upload the newest version as soon as it is tested.

The menu has a "PM the Developer" submenu option, so I hear about issues as fast as they are PM'd to me. Please continue to use that submenu option to communicate with me.

Please always check this thread prior to using this plugin. I am actively developing new functions and features every day.

Thanks for your understanding.

DaltonST: If you update the plugin, you don't need to update the index thread. That is used by the server to get the list of plugins. Once a plugin is in the index, the server checks the plugin thread for any changes once an hour. That happens at about half past the hour.

Dirty Metadata Snips or Lists for New Scrubbing Rules

I am always hunting for malformed and/or misplaced metadata to use as templates for new Scrubbing Rules. I am running low, and I could use your help.

If you have any that Q+S is not already fixing, please Private Message me after attaching a screen snip of any book’s GUI row in Calibre that is not being scrubbed properly by this plugin. If many books have the identical problem, just send the most complex sample. If you can create a .txt file via "calibredb.exe list --fields=all ...", that would be better than screen snips, since I could copy&paste it into Calibre into a new fake book just for testing.

All of my test books are fake, no covers, .txt format, with just x's and spaces to read in the .txt book file, and obviously 100% copyright free. Metadata is just data about data, and hence cannot be copyrighted (just ask a John Smith).

If you have “dirty tags” that always need deleting or changing, and the plugin is not already scrubbing them, Private Message me a single snip or a simple text list of those too via "calibredb.exe list --fields=tags ..."


For help on calibredb.exe: calibredb.exe --help > "an_output_file.txt" or
http://manual.calibre-ebook.com/cli/...calibredb-list



Thank you.
