There's a minor typo in the KoboUtilities_Help.html file:

If anything goes wrong, the database could get corrupter.

Probably meant to be 'corrupted' or 'more corrupt'.

Hi David,

thank you very much for a much needed functionality. I would second the wish for an automatic save on connecting the device. And in the few cases where I do not want to get the status from the device allowing this to be turned off would be quite sufficient for me.

One minor problem: The performance report PeterT gave doesn't really make it usable (at least automatically) for the time being. I assume that you will need some debugging to speed up the process, and I would be happy to be a tester (at least for OS X).

Thanks again, Joachim
PS: My wife nearly killed me when I restored her Kobo a few weeks back without this information...

Would you believe that was a deliberate error so that I would know if someone actually read the help?

Beta of background job

I really should go to bed but there's only 10Km to go...

I have added an option to run the store as a job. This is the first step in being able to run this automatically. The store is started in the same way, but there is an extra option to run it as a job. Once started, the following is what happens:

- Collect the list of books to do the store for
- Run the job collecting the reading locations from the device
- Prompt whether to actually save the changes
- Store the changes in the calibre library

Because of the prompt and when the actual updates are done, more work has to be done before this can be automatically run.

One of the reasons for putting this out is performance. While doing this, I tuned the SQL used a little bit. This had a big affect when run as a job. The non-job version was not as noticeable. At the moment, for my test library of 420 books and 77 with reading positions, both ways takes about the same total time. I'm interested in how long it takes for those with more books on the device.

As always, if you see a bug, tell me so I can squash it.

I'll try to get traces because I'm getting an "Index out of range" when I'm trying to restore the info in some books.

Just tried the beta, and it definitely is fast.

I have around 5000 books in my library 360 of which are on the Kobo. I simply marked all 5000 of them in the library view and started the "Store" process as a background job.

Calibre needs nearly a minute to preprocess stuff (I assume it creates a list of all books or something) and the "Store" process needs 3 seconds.

Yay :-)

Btw., one question: I have existing ratings in my "Rating" column. If I use this for the plugin to store the ratings on the Kobo, will it delete the existing ratings if there are none on the Kobo? I wouldn't like that, and for the time being I simply created an additional column "Rating Kobo"...

<off topic>
Oh, and is there a simple way to rate a book while reading it? I only know of the rating functionality in the book details view. Or something like a back or up button?
</off topic>

Cheers, Joachim

I tried this plugin today and loved it, it is so much easier to keep track off the readings, and finally was able to remove the annoying tiles from the main menu.
David for your work
