[GUI Plugin] Job Spy

[GUI Plugin] Job Spy


Summary:

This plug-in allows you to view the Job Details of the last N jobs to execute via a single click to the 'Job Spy' icon.

Starting with the last to execute, the 'Job Details' are presented to you consecutively until the customized maximum number (N) has been reached. The default value of N is 5. Close the currently shown 'Job Details', and the next will automatically be presented until N is reached.

If you have no jobs, then nothing will be shown at all.


Installation:
  • The initial default value of N is set via Calibre > Preferences > Plugins > Customize Plug-in after selecting 'Job Spy'.
  • Add it to the Calibre ToolBar via Calibre > Preferences > ToolBar.
  • Requires Calibre Version 2.49 or later.

Does this offer more information than the existing Jobs dialog that pops up when you click 'Jobs'? From the description it sounds like a convenience button to the same info.

UPDATE: Trying it out and examining the code, that's exactly what it does: Pop open the existing Jobs Log(s) as if you'd opened the Jobs dialog and viewed them from there.

@JimmXinu - you can put JobSpy in the context menu and assign kb shortcuts,

I put it in the context menu. For the mouse averse, Shift+Alt+J, then Alt+D (which doesn't always work for me) is an awkward key sequence, whereas menu key, then down/up arrows, can be done with one finger.

Job Spy with "Enable Viacam"

For those with hand movement and other physical challenges, Job Spy used with the utility "Enable Viacam" http://www.fosshub.com/Enable-Viacam.html works very effectively. Just look at the Job Spy icon, and it will click automatically. The job details dialog will pop open, and by looking at the close button repeatedly the desired number of job details will be presented automatically. Obviously a webcam is required, since the Enable Viacam tracks your eyes and face via a camera.

Version 1.0.3 New Tearoff Menu Items - "Bonus GUI Tools"

See the attached image.

For users of my CALM add-on, Job Spy's new "Bonus GUI Tools" functionality is highly recommended. As you well know, the GUI can have a huge number of Custom Columns in the consolidated CALM Target Library. The new functionality allows you to quickly expand and compress the columns.

The Job Spy ToolTips remind you that the superb 'View Manager' plug-in should be used to easily get back to your "normal" settings.

The above also applies to the users of my QuarantineAndScrub add-on.
