What's the difference between rescan_books and rescan_books_full ?
So far, the former has done what I need.

rescan_books only does a scan for new books, but rescan_books_full simulates a USB plug/unplug cycle (for conf file changes, DB changes, cache purges, filesystem checks, UI updates, book changes, etc).

See the release on GitHub for more details.

I've been getting a ton of use out of NickelMenu; It's much more convenient than using the wonky KSM version for Formas.

A feature I think would be incredible would be if I could make a button to toggle between "Refresh screen every page" and "Refresh screen every chapter."

I read enough PDFs and CBZs that I'm constantly in the settings changing it back and forth. Just an idea.

Thanks for the hard work.

Do you mean something like nickel_setting:toggle_refresh:<num_pages> which would toggle [Reading].numPartialUpdatePageTurns between 4294967295 and num_pages?

NickelMenu v0.1.2

This release adds two new actions: `nickel_misc:home` and `nickel_wifi`.
Code:
nickel_wifi - one of:
    autoconnect        - attempts to enable and connect to wifi (similar to what happens when you open a link)
    autoconnect_silent - attempts to connect to wifi in the background (does nothing if wifi is disabled, the battery is low, is already connected, or there aren't any known networks in range) (no errors are shown) (similar to what happens when you turn on the Kobo)
    enable             - enables WiFi (but doesn't necessarily connect to it)
    disable            - disables WiFi
    toggle             - toggles WiFi (but doesn't necessarily connect to it)
See the release on GitHub for more details.

Yeah, that would be really useful.

Or if that's convoluted, maybe instead of a toggle it could just be nickel_setting:refresh:<num_pages>
Might be more user friendly.
Then you could achieve the same result with two buttons.

@geek1011: A simple setter sounds good, yeah. Can easily be scripted as a toggle since the value is readable in the config.

But if you really want to make it a toggle in NM, allow setting both "sides" of the toggle directly (with, err, perhaps something more human-readable than the underflowed -1 ;p).

Just installed 0.1.2 and tested home! Thanks. (Ok, forgot to test wifi, that's next.)

I don't know if it has always done this, but library:library makes my kobo reboot.
Library:library2 is fine. I suspect an uninitialized variable for some view I've never visited.

edit: wifi works great!

Building on @DevonHess's request ...

Might it be possible to introduce some kind of generic 'set Theme' feature where several (user-definable) config items are set with a single menu item. For example to set a NightMode theme I may want to change several config variables simultaneously:
Code:
InvertScreen=True
ColorSetting=1500
FrontLightLevel=1
numPartialUpdatePageTurns=-1

You should be able to use the "chain" mechanism for that.

Basically, something like:
Code:
menu_item : main : Theme label : <first setting> : <first arg>
chain_success : <second setting> : <second arg>
chain_success : <third setting> : <third arg>
...
menu_item : main : Another menu item : <another setting> : <another arg>
