Question Managing KOReader via SSH

Hi all. My Kindle Voyage's touch screen has stopped working. But the display is in perfect condition, not broken or scratched. I would not like to throw it away and sometimes continue to use it.

KOReader and USB Network hack are already installed on my device. I thought I could open books via SSH on my Android phone and use the device without any problems (page turning with buttons, backlight adjusted by light sensor, night mode already on as scheduled)

I can easily run KOReader by passing it the book as a parameter.
Code:
./mnt/us/koreader/koreader.sh "/mnt/us/books/path to book"
Does anyone know how I can exit of KOReader or change the open book using an SSH command?

hius07, thank you very much. This is exactly what is needed.

I will also answer my first message, maybe it will be useful to someone. First, enable the HTTP inspector in the settings or if your touchscreen does not work like mine, then set it to autorun in the config (mnt/us/koreader/settings.reader.lua)

Code:
    ["httpinspector_autostart"] = true,
    ["httpinspector_port"] = 8080,
Now launch the KOReader and you can start

Change the book through the SSH
Code:
curl "localhost:8080/koreader/ui/switchDocument?/'path to book'" > /dev/null 2>&1
Exit from the KOReader
Code:
curl localhost:8080/koreader/event/Exit > /dev/null 2>&1
Or you can do it all through the browser. More events (changing brightness, font, night mode, turning pages and much more) are available at the link
Code:
