User Interface Plugin Creation & Development Process

Plugin Development
The Official Plugin Tutorial is here.
Plugin Developer API Documentation is located here.


Access the plugin folder by going to Calibre Preferences:
Miscellaneous -> 'Open Calibre Configuration Directory'


At a high level, developing and testing changes to a user interface plugin requires these steps:
  1. Create/Update Plugin
  2. Zip the plugin, replacing the original file
  3. Restart Calibre
  4. Test, Rinse & Repeat

Thankfully all that logic can be done while Calibre is running with a single command line:
Code:
 calibre -s; sleep 4s; zip -R /path/to/plugin/zip/file.zip *; calibre

Publishing Your Plugin


Basic Introduction / End User Info
