Lightbulb [WIP] KoboMail - send ebooks by email to kobo devices

Hi folks,

Inspired by the send to kindle functionality I've taken this small endeavour to create something similar for kobo devices.
It's built in Go (my first program actually) and used bits and pieces of other solutions like KoboCloud, kobo-rclone and wallabako.
The way it works is by using Gmail trick that allows to send an email to user+kobo@gmail.com and the email is received on the user@gmail.com account.
This greatly simplifies any attempt to detect which emails are to be processed by the kobo device.

It's available here https://github.com/clisboa/KoboMail

Would appreciate if anyone takes a look at it and let me know of improvements .
I already have in mind using fbink to give more user feedback on what's happening behind the scenes, limiting the attachment types (it blindly saves any attachment) and allowing other email account types.

Have fun

Kind regards,
clisboa

New version which now uses optionally NickelDbus to trigger the library rescan without human intervention and also presents dialogs to inform the user how many ebooks were processed.
