[GUI Plugin] Sum Column

A simple GUI plugin to sum up configurable columns of the selected books.

The idea came when in somebody in a german eBook forum asked if such a plugin did exist. No one knew of a plugin like this. The alternative of exporting a book list to CSV and do the evaluation inside a spreadsheet application was annoying.

So i decided to write a simple plugin to sum up numerical columns. Here it is.

  • Configure which user defined numerical columns should be summed up
  • Sum up these columns for all selected books
  • Displays the result inside a dialog and the status bar
  • Prepared to work inside the Favourites Menu

The plugin was only tested with Calibre 3.40.1. If you encounter issues with older versions, please contact me.

If you want to participate in developing this plugin, e.g. by adding translations, you can find the git repository with the source code on GitHub.

If you feel that this plugin is worht paying for it, then just select a charity organization of your choice and donate some money.

Version History

Version 0.3.0, 2019-04-03
First version with multiple columns to be configered.
