After jailbreaking my Kindle Touch I installed Komik, as the navtive Kindle support for comics / manga is not satisfying.
Sadly I was disappointed with Komik as it is also lacking in quite some features, though it has much potential.

Here are the things that I find most disturbing / annoying:
• I usually have multiple mangas with each some 100+ chapters. Although structured in (sub-)folders, why are all the single chapters displayed on the same level? Why not rather have a file browser of some sort with subfolders?
• If I have finished chapter 99 and want to continue with 100, I every time have to scroll down aaaall the way to the bottom. It would be better if you just could go back to where you selected the previous chapter aka file to read.
• Why is there no way to hide the status bar at the top and have full screen reading?
• I wish we could just read manga without having to prepare them every time in advance. This applies to renaming with Komik. If there is a script to rename all the randomly named files, why can’t Komik process them in the first place?
• Why does the welcome window show up on every start rather than just on the first time?

Sorry for all the nagging! I hope you do not take this as critisism rather than as a “wish list” of what Komik should be. I believe that it really can become the best way to read manga on the Kindle, giving it a little more polishing.
It seems isn't possible to hide status bar in a WAF.
Or, at least, no one has yet discovered how to do it.

Welcome popup is a walkaround to a problem related to 5.1.0 firmware (crash when opening an alert while not in index.html page).
Until now, it's the only walkaround I found. AFAIK, Komic is one of the few WAFs using more than one html page (if not the only), so no one else had this problem.

Rename script, as well as other scripts, could be run when running Komic, but I really don't want to wait them to finish processing every time I run Komic.
Furthermore, renaming needs to be done only once (when you add a new folder).

I could make the dropdown menu to show last choosed folder, I'll look in it asap.


As regards other questions, as I stated many times here, I can't read/write files directly.
This means that Komic knows only what the starting script writes in a js file everytime you run it.
If I could read files it would have been a lot easier (and this is why I'm planning to move to java).



I know Komic has those problems: I built it for me so those problems bother me too.
Anyway I don't know how to solve them. If you're willing to help, the source code is open and any help is welcome!!

Hello. I'm curious at how is ordinary manga page on Komic?
Screenshots are about only app's menu.
I'm curious at how seen is normal manga page at Komic. (Portrait and Landscape Mode)
Can you upload a readeble manga or comic page screenshot, please?

Images are attached.

Landscape images are from the same page, scrolling down to the end

White margins are embedded with the images (full size images are displayed in full screen).

XKCD image (5th image) is really a poor resolution image (google's thumbnail was nice!! )

Thank you very much for screenshots. Specially Landscape mode superb.
Dialogs on first image is very small for me. Can we zoom in-out this page on Komic?
Can we scroll up-down on portrait mode?

First image was an A4 page comic!! I took that screenshot a while ago just because I find that image funny!

Anyway, you can zoom in and out (before 5.1.0 firmware you could use pinch-to-zoom, now I added a "change image size" feature. You can read something about it here in "RESIZE FUNCTION" paragraph).

Finally, in landscape mode you can scroll up and down using swipe gesture or, more comfortable, tapping on the bottom of the page will scroll down the image. You also can change the amount of scrolling.

Maybe you would like a reduced price, limited function, edition of your own for a trial period?
If you ask real nice, Silver18 might let you have a free trial copy.

OK, so after re-reading my last question(s) I noticed I really did sound like a jerk. Thank you very much for not taking it the wrong way silver18 and taking your time answering them. I really was just a little disappointed, but so are you because of the seeming limitedness of WAF.
I would love to help, though I don't know if I will manage to come up with the time for it nor if I have the knowledge. But I shall prevail, or I'll die trying.
Btw. is there an overview in what ways applications can be programmed for the kindle, maybe with some sample code? I already heard Java, Html and WAF.
If you already know that WAF is limited I think you should move on to a method capable of providing the things that are needed.

The different programming methods have prefix tags, and indexes. You can get to them via the master index sticky. Most stuff is not yet indexed though, but it is a good place to start. Be sure to check out the hacking wikis (linked into the device-specific indexes).

If you have occasional double pages, you can change image size making the width and height 200%!

I'm sorry for this delay, but this month is full of exams in university!
I'll release it asap.
Anyway, new release will contain the autosave option and many fixes in scripts!

Silver,

Question on how the rename script works. Here's my scenario since I read manga as groups translate each chapter.
  1. A chapter or so on the kindle already, properly numbered.
  2. Add new chapter (plus old chapter to get order correct) to kindle.
  3. Run rename script.

OK, so in that scenario, how does the rename script handle preexisting files in the directory?

Thanks. And yes, "what if" was one of my favorite games as a child.

Rename script works like this:
- make a list of every folder containing images in /documents/Gallery/
- check a folder at a time
- sort files inside folder
- if first image has 0 as name, skip folder
- otherwise, it renames files

So....if you add images to a folder with already renamed files, those images won't be renamed as the script finds 0 as first file and it skips the folder.
