Someone who knows what they are doing and has a lot of time on their hands could likely have a working beta version in a few months.
IMO the best feature of Calibre Companion is being able to use the smart device app calibre driver. Chaley wrote both the client and the server in https://github.com/kovidgoyal/calibr...art_device_app.

I would start for releasing an opensource implementation for that piece of code.

About what is pretty straight forward or not, I think is just a matter of past experience. Things that you see easy can be a nightmare for me.
