This version has an icon on the status bar you double click to kick off web2lrf prompting you first. You can turn off the prompt via the minimal preferences dialog and update the settings to use.

Tomorrow I'll look at adding a context menu to the icon for per-document overrides on the web2lrf settings and getting a rdf feed working for updates.

If anyone has any better ideas for a name than Bookit let me know. I just called it that because of the original post.

That would be great. Can you do it in such a way as to not launch the gui but just add to the database and exit?

What's the point of not launching the GUI?

I guess it depends upon how you use it, if you're creating a bunch of files you may not want to launch the gui every time. However, I'm easy. It can always be made an option.

Is using web2lrf the right way do this or should we just launch the gui with the url and various options?

Using web2lrf is the right way. The GUI has a server, which means that once it's started up calling it repeatedly with file names means that it isn't reloaded each time. Also, since presumably the plugin works by you visiting a site, then clicking on the "Book It" button, it works a site at a time?

That's right, it invokes web2lrf with the current url and places the resulting lrf in an output directory specified in the preferences.

FYI, I did a quick update over breakfast, it now will update via the rdf mechanism, but you need to do one more manual uninstall and reinstall via my site. After that you'll be able to do a quick 'check for updates'.

The next release of calibre, later today will support passing an argument to calibre.exe to laod books into the database. Once you think the extension is ready let me know and I'll add a link to it on the calibre download pages.

Great, I should have an hour or two available this evening to do an update. BTW, I used an png version of one of your svg files for the status bar icon. If this is an issue please let me know.

I installed this plug-in on Firefox on my Mac. But I can't find the path to web2lrf to put in the preferences. Is it in the calibre.app folder? If so what would be the path to the executable? Thanks.

It is in /usr/bin but that should be on your path already, so just putting web2lrf there should do the trick.

I'm not actually doing any downloading, I'm just passing the url and other options to web2lrf. Once it's to a point the core code is working well, I'll add support for as many web2lrf options as I can.

Well, then it is question to Kovid - is it possible to somehow block banners and other junk? After I'm cleaning web page view in Firefox with ripit plugin from annoying links and banners, I'm seeing them again in lrf.

Not really, web2lrf (at least its command line interface) doesn't have options for cleaning up downloaded HTML. If you want to do it like that a better route is to save the HTML to disk and run html2lrf on it.
