[Metadata Source Plugin] Goodreads More Tags

This plugin scrapes the shelves page of Goodreads to provide more tags than the top 4 (which are shown on the main page and scraped by the Goodreads plugin).

This plugin will only provide tags. It is meant to be used as a companion to the Goodreads plugin, and it is essentially an extended version of the genre -> tag mapping included in that plugin.

Main Features
  • Can retrieve the shelves page of Goodreads to provide more tags.
  • Customizable mapping from shelf name -> tags. A shelf can be mapped to multiple tags, and multiple shelves can map to the same tag(s).
  • Fine-grained filtering to only keep tags that enough people agree on.
  • Integrates with the Goodreads Plugin to provide tags for all of its results.

Special Notes
  • Requires Calibre 0.8 or later.
  • If used without the base Goodreads plugin, it will only get tags for books that have a goodreads identifier.

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.
  • Customize your desired genre -> tag mappings and other options from the Metadata download configuration screen. Hover over the ? symbols to get an explanation of what the various options do.

I'd been occasionally doing this manually for books with only one Tag, being able to do it automatically is brilliant!

Thank you!!
