[Metadata Source Plugin]

This plugin has been created to download metadata and cover image from

I must give credits to the original author, Daermond for making and publishing the initial plugin, but sadly he had abandoned it, so here I am taking over and fixing the errors that have popped up since.

Also, a big thumbs up for kiwidude, for sorting things out for me.

Main features of 1.0.1:
  • Can retrieve title, author, series, ISBN, comments, tags, publisher, year of publication, rating, language and a cover image
  • Shows multiple results if possible (3 by default, can be 1-20)
  • Search based on ISBN if present, otherwise based on title and/or author

Special Notes:
  • Requires Calibre 0.8 or later.

Installation Notes:
  • Download the attached zip file and install the plugin as described in the Introduction to plugins thread.
  • Note that this is not a GUI plugin so it is not intended/cannot be added to context menus/toolbars etc.

Version 1.0.1 - 17 Oct 2012
