[Metadata Source Plugin] Smashwords

This plugin gets the metadata for books from Smashwords.

As this is brand new, it is to be considered a beta. I will get it added to the plugin list when there has been some more testing.

Main Features
  • Can retrieve title, author, comments, publisher, publication date, language, series, tags and covers.
  • The identifier used is "smashwords". It will show in the details as "Smashwords".

Special Notes:
  • It retrieves the full size covers that are displayed when clicking on the cover when viewing the book. The usually have a height of 2200px.
  • Smashwords shows a category. This can have multiple values and levels. I haven't decided what to do with this yet.
  • For the series, Smashwords has both an index and what they call "custom_membership_statement". The latter seems to be descriptive text for where the book in the series. As an example, one book had this as "Volume 0.5", but the series index was "1". The plugin attempts to get the series index from the "custom_membership_statement".

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.

Configuration:
  • Use long description: If this is checked, then long description shown when pressing "More" at the end of the description is used.

Version History:
Spoiler:
Version 0.0.1 - 01 January[/post]
  • First release
