Question Can anyone point me in the right direction to making a plugin for a new file format.

Im currently working on a file format based off of Epub (working title is paqpub) and need some help with making a plugin for it.

Look at an existing plugin -- all builtin format support is in the form of plugins. ANd I think there is an old DOC input third party plugin available as well.

This might be a stupid question, but where can i find the files for the existing plugins, and if i create a conversion input plugin will that be enough for calibre to read it ?

I meant the plugins that are included with calibre, like the epub reading one.

@monyarm: If you are going to base something on epub, have a look at the various kepub plugins. This is Kobo's format and is basically an epub with a couple of rules and some extra spans. The kepub plugins either directly subclass the epub equivalents, or call the appropriate epub methods. And I think we have the full set of format specific plugins have been created.
