Here's an updated Calibre plugin.

* Better user interface
* Supports the "location offset" feature of the .NET version
* Support of aliases. Run the plugin once to create an .aliases file, edit it as appropriate, then run it again.
* Hopefully works for Mobi8 files, although I haven't tested this.

Feedback welcome.

Thank you for the updated plugin. Can you please explain which is the directory to unpack the book in?

Sure, you just need to choose a temporary directory somewhere. The plug-in will create some files here which it needs while processing (it won't delete them afterwards though).

Actually I should probably just update it to create a temporary directory. Next version maybe.

Rats. You'll need to specify a filename for the aliases even if you're not planning to use it. Sorry about that, will fix it next time out.

I've got it working, here are my thoughts:

I use Calibre to email all my books via Amazon Personal Docs, so I can make use of Last Page Read Sync between Paperwhite, iPad and iPhone. This means that after I send them, the ASIN changes.

To get it working what I do I send the book as normal, then on my PW/iPhone/iPad, I have the book, with last page read syncing working fine.

I then plug in my PW via USB, and use Mobi Meta Editor to check the ASIN that Calibre assigned it when I emailed it. I then drag the .azw from the PW documents folder into Calibre, and use your plugin to generate the XRay .asc file. I then put this in the .sdr folder, and XRay works fine on the PW, and Last Page Read Sync still works across my 3 devices.

I can't help thinking there must be an easier way!

Also, I noticed the following thing when looking at the XRay file, specifically when I choose "Wikipedia Info":



Note the weird:

ad> loc.2>


Also, wouldn't it be possible to the Shelfari and/or Wikipedia lookup automatically, based on the book title/ISBN/etc in Calibre?

The XRay file contains pointers into the structure of the mobi file. Currently this is only done properly for characters, not for any other terms found from Wikipedia. I could take a look at enhancing this.

Sounds possible. I don't know if Wikipedia would necessarily work, you might hit a disambiguation page, but it's probably worth a try.
