[Metadata Source Plugin] LubimyCzytac [PL]

LubimyCzytac - Version 0.5.6 (2012-02-16)

This plugin uses as a metadata source. It was based on the Barnes & Noble plugin.

It is made generally for searching polish books. Actually it is useless otherwise - has polish books only in its database.
I've written this, because non-polish sites do not support searching without diaktrics (means: ‘ą’, ‘ę’, ‘ł’ and all that stuff). On the other hand - title and author parsed from filename usually lacks polish diaktrics. As an effect you must manually complete it before searching for metadata.

Using this plugin you can find for example:
Search for: title(Zolw i zajac)
Found: title(Żółw i zając)

Main Features:
  1. Deals with polish diaktrics
  2. Retrives:
  • isbn
  • authors
  • title
  • publisher & publish date
  • series & series number
  • rating
  • tags
  • comments
  • cover
  • language

Special Notes:
  • Requires calibre 0.8.15 or higher.
  • This is my first work in python. Actually it's first time as I've ever seen python. So be tolerant reviewing the source code ;-)

Known issues /to do:
  • This is a beta, this is first time I’ve ever seen python, so can be buggy. Please report any error you've found.

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.
