I have downloaded your amazon.py program from bazaar and changed some of the xpath statements.


It is now again posible to get the Metadata from Amazon.de

I someone can't wait for a official solution please feel free to install the attachment as plugin and give it a try.

Thank you!
With a few substitutions, your code works also with amazon.it
Can I open a new thread with your plugin to make happy italian users?
I will not change the authors

Hello Fabio (Nandocuci)!
From my point of view you can modify the plugin(my quick hack) and make the italian users happy, but i want to make clear that it is not my code. It is, Govids great work and i have changed only very very few lines of his code and i am shure that he will provide a cleaner solution for our problems soon.

But meanwhile i want to thank you and the others who have tried my "quick hack"

greetings dirk

PS: by the way , have you find a better way to manage the "Autor" thing with the
(autor) (translator) Tags in the same line with the autor name? Or is this problem on the italian site not present

Thank you very much Kovid,
seems there is now a official solution in 0.8.1 much faster i expected :-)
I have tested you new version with some Booktitles and it looks good. Great work
thank you very much

Hello Dirk,
the problem of (author) (translator) tag also exists in the Italian site.
I'm not so skillful to solve it.
I am very grateful to Kovid every time I use Calibre, but I am also grateful to you for small changes to his plugin.
I will open the new thread.

Ciao

Fabio


PS: I don't see official solution in 8.1
Where is it?

@bdgogo: That changelog entry refers to the get books feature not metadata download. Support for all the various amazon country variants (uk, de, fr, it) will be in 0.8.2

Hello Kovid,
thank you for this quick clarification.
I am a little bit confused about that. With the change to 0.8.0 i was not able to get the german descriptions. This in mind i changed your code in the way i described earlier. With availibility of 0.8.1 i have deactivated "my temporary plugin " and have only used the original set of metadata plugins. I have tried about ten books and in all cases i have got the german description. very strange. However my issue is fixed and i am again a happy calibre user.

That is an unintentional side effect of this changelog entry:

Amazon metadata download plugin: Fix links being stripped from comments. Also fix ratings/isbn not being parsed from kindle edition pages.

It required making the XPath more generic, which probably fixed the problem with the german website as well.

In 0.8.2 you will be able to customize the amazon plugin to select which website it will use.

Thanks, Kovid, for adding amazon.de in 0.8.2!!!

But... (I know, never satisfied....) could you give us the option of using amazon.com and amazon.de (or others) at the same time? My library has both, English and German books and now I would have to go into the settings and change the country every time I have a book in the other language. Thanks!

No, that's not going to happen. You are free to create a custom plugin based on the builtin one with a different name and use it.

Hi Kovid,

just wanted to thank you for the possibility to change between different amazons!
It is really great!
I have "DE" as default, so I get the right info for my german books and since most of the us-books are also available from amazon.de, I get the right description for them in most cases. Only in some rare cases I have to change to amazon.com. But that's an easy task with the new metadata pane.
Thanks again for this great feature

Agreed, many thanks Kovid for adding Amazon UK metadata download, I can now have UK covers on my books at last!

Thanks again.

You're welcome On second thoughts, it may be possible to have the plugin query all the amazon sites for matches in parallel, it will be a bit of a pain to code, so I'm not making any promises.
