[Metadata Source Plugin] ADLIBRIS_SE (SE)

ADLIBRIS_SE - Version 0.2.3 -BETA!! - 20 november 2014 by Pr. BarnArt.

This plugin is for using ADLIBRIS as a metadata source.
It is for books in the swedish language, that's why it is called ADLIBRIS_SE.
It was based on my plugin for dutch books BOL_NL.
This project is in BETA stage, so please comment to make it more mature.



Main Features of ADLIBRIS_SE 0.2.3
  • retrieve isbn
  • retrieve multiple authors (no contributers/translators), title
  • retrieve comments, cover, rating, series, publisher and publishing date, lanquage

Special Notes:
  • ADLIBRIS_SE first looks for a match on the isbn-number, if that is given.
  • Otherwise it takes the author's name en the exact booktitle.
  • requires calibre 2.05 or higher.

Add / Fixed:
  • fix due to website changes
  • fix series and serieindex

known issues /to do:
The plugin was depracated for a while, because it did not work and nobody noticed. I can only maintain the plugin if the users inform me when it is broken.
I do not use it myself. I am not Swedisch.
Tusend Tack for notifying errors and changes of the website.

ADLIBRIS_SE

There is a new plugin for ADLIBRIS_SE (beta).
I mentioned that adlibris also offers danish and norwegian books.
If people like that, I could make some additonal plugins, based on this one.

Hey, you can try the plugin: it is called ADLIBRIS_SE and you can find it in a new thread at the Plugin-forum

It is an initial release in beta, so there sure will be something to fix.
I just did some regular testing.

I like to know the name of the writer and title, where adlibris shows no cover, or an image no cover available, so I can skip that

Also easy to know a book with multiple authors, can you mention one.

Serieinformation is not supported yet, but i saw adlibris offers it quit well,
so i will take that in a next release.


Please let me know if somethin is not working or could be better.

Thanks a lot! I am impressed by how fast you've done it.

Will be testing it myself, as soon as i get back to my Calibre. Will give feedback then. Until then, here is a book with three authors. And here is one with no cover.

Hi Pr.BarnArt,

To me, it works very well. I haven't found a single book with wrong or missing metadata, after using the plugin. Not one single cover was downloaded though; I assume all my covers were "small size" then that the plugin can't handle as you wrote.

I noticed one bug (?). When I added the plugin to Calibre, both the first version and the update. After adding the plugin, my (latest ver., always updated) Calibre was unable to download "normal" English metadata from Amazon and other metadata sources so I had to disable and re-enable the AdLibris plugin.

I saw that it can't download metadata for e-books, are those so different?

C.

In version 0.2.0 it should also find small cover, unless this is a no_image_available picture.
Can you pls. give me some titles and authors to check with,

I dont know yet, most of the times the update of plugins throught Calbire just replace the new one for the old one, keeping your preferences set.

I did not know if they are realy different, but when you are looking for just 1 match, you get the first one that matches. If this is an e-bok , than you get the meta-data and the cover for the e-bok.
I made the first version of the plugin as a concept,simple. I thought that most people would look for "inbunden", so I skipped the e-bok to make also less comlex. In the results we also have to skip the listening-books, cd's etc.
I can put e-bok's as an option in a next version, if you need/like that.

Let me know

Thanks for your comments

I am porting some plugins to QT5.
At this point I noticed that the plugin doesnot work anymore, but I did not get any info about that for more than a year.
My conclusion is that this plugin is not used, so it can be deprecated.

It is no problem to make a new release.
But it is strange you said you did download a new version. There is no new version yet, the last one is 0.2.0 and it dates from 4 december 2011 !!
If you can confirm it still works, then I will port it to qt5.
If it is broken and the plugin should be continued I need feedback : title authors that give errors etc.
