hiring a plugin developer - custom page addition

I want a CLI plugin that let's me add a custom page at the beginning of all my books. There is already the meta jacket code, I tried to clone that but got lost very quickly.

I don't have a budget because I am not sure the amount of work. Of this goes well though I will have other requests in the future. Also this plugin would be allowed to be shared with everyone (I actually encourage it)


I didn't know if this should be a reply in requests or a stand alone thread since it's not a qualify item, it's something I will pay to have built.

I might be interested.

What sort of custom page do you want? Containing what data? When you say at the beginning, do you mean literally, before any pre-existing cover?

Have you looked at the Ex Libris plugin?

Spoiler:
his plugin allows you to insert an ex libris into your eBooks in EPUB format.

The source code is available in this GitHub repo.

In particular, this is the Calibre plugin version of the CLI tool described in this discussion.

You can select a single ebook or your entire Calibre library, and have the same ex libris applied to all of them! You can both replace the existing eBooks or create a copy.

You must supply an XHTML file containing the ex libris to be inserted, and --- optionally --- any other resource needed (images, CSS files, fonts, etc.).

If you select a single EPUB book, the main window will show you its spine and TOC, to help you specify the insertion points of the ex libris page.....
