Up until the arrival of iOS5 on my iPhone I used Stanza to read and download from an OPDS catalog I use at home. Since Stanza isn't compatible any longer with my phone, I have moved onto using Kobo. As a reader it isn't as good, but better than others I have tried.
My only issue is that you need to download the files from a web browser, and although I can do this, as I have it as a website, I don't get to see synopses of the books, the genre or anything else which is helpful.
I have over 800 in my library and loads more to add, and don't want to start again and therefore I am wondering if there is a feature that will allow me to generate html pages using the information within Calibre that will give me the information as well as a link to the file.
Look forward to hearing from anyone who might be able to help.
Start the content server, then in your browser, type in
<IP of your machine>:8080 [enter]
and see if that meets your needs
If it does, then you will need to
1)Leave the machine running (with Calibre running). 2) Set the preference to always start when Calibre starts.
The IP only applies for devices connected to your LAN. You need to setup Port-Forwarding
on your router (way beyond this discussion
There are tips on the preferences page
