Arrow BookBrowser 2.0

BookBrowser
A web-based ePub and PDF ebook server with search, a web-based reader, a responsive ui, and more.

BookBrowser is an easy-to-use web-based ebook server. It supports PDF and ePub books (and more coming soon). It loads quickly and does not require any special folder structure. It supports Windows, Linux, and macOS. It has a modern and feature-packed UI. It also comes with a web based reader with themes, custom font settings, and more.

Using BookBrowser is as simple as downloading it, moving it to the folder with your books, then starting it. You will then be given a link which you can use to access your books.

There is usually a demo available on my server at bookbrowser-demo.geek1011.net

Features:
  • Search
  • Advanced search
    • Search any field, and see results instantly
  • List view
    • View all book information from one place
    • Easy-to-use filters
  • Responsive web interface
  • Browse by:
    • Author
    • Random
    • Series (from calibre metadata)
  • Web based reader
    • Custom fonts, colors, sizing, spacing
    • Remembers your position
    • PDF and ePub
    • Works on mobile devices too
    • And more
  • Works in the kobo browser
  • And more
  • Easy-to-use
  • Fast
  • No extra dependencies

If you like BookBrowser, please star it on GitHub

Well done. I will be checking it out.

Did you benchmark the two versions (Python and Go)? Any significant difference?

Indexing is fast, the UI is clean and doesn't get in the way.
I suppose the next step is serving templates so they can be customised.

No I have not benchmarked them, but the old version is available in the old-version branch.

There is a significant difference in the performance of the pages though. One of the main reasons is because I now use thumbnails for the covers.

Yes, that will come soon, my first priority was to change it to go, and later, use proper templates.

I have been trying to get this to work. I start it and a CMD window opens to scan all the eBooks but then nothing happens after that. I downloaded the latest 64bit Windows version. Early on I was having trouble with my virus tools but I think I have the worked out now.

It runs a server that listens by default on port 8090.

Run the binary, then use your browser to go to this address: http://localhost:8090/books/ or http://127.0.0.1:8090/books/

I remember there being a reader based on epub.js in the previous version as well. Did I miss something?
Anyway, there seem to be a few issues, notably with constant refreshes on loading an epub.

Will provide steps to reproduce the issue if needed.

I redesigned it with a more modern interface (the old one looked quite ugly). The constant refreshes are it generating the pagination by loading each chapter. They should stop about 20 seconds after opening the book.
