[Editor Plugin] ACE by Daisy - EPUB Accessibility Checker

This plugin is a simple ACE (=Accessibility Checker for EPUB) wrapper.

Credits: This plugin is based on Doitsu's code for Sigil's ACE Plugin and EPUBCheck for calibre. The Config Menu is based on KindleUnpack's. Thanks to Kovid Goyal for providing the feature that made possible linked error messages.

System requirements: You need to install ACE before you can run the plugin. Mininum calibre version: 2.0.0 (when the Editor was introduced).

Ace installation:
  1. Install Node.JS
    • Go to Node.JS
    • Download version 6.4.0 or higher
    • Double-click to install
  2. Install (or update) Ace
    • After installing Node, open a shell window
      • On Windows: Windows System->Command Prompt or Start->Run->cmd.exe
      • On Mac: Applications->Utilities->Terminal
    • Type the following command to install or update Ace
      Code:
      npm install @daisy/ace -g
  3. If everything went smoothly, you should now be able to run the ace command in your shell. You can test it out like this:
    Code:
    $ ace --version
    1.0.2
Visit the ACE's website if you have any trouble with the installation.

Settings: You can change the settings on the 'Configure' dropdown menu beside the ACE icon on the Editor. The same menu is reachable via Preferences > Advanced > Plugins > Customize Plugin.

Options:
  • Report Folder: select de default folder to save ACE report.
  • Open Report after checking: opens the html report, after finished.
  • Debug Mode: copy ACE log to clipboard.
  • Close Validation Docks: automatically close Check Book and EPUBCheck docks.

Language: The default language for ACE is English. There are no other options available right now. As for the plugin itself, it is available* in several languages: de, eu, fr, it, pt_BR, ru, es, sv and uk. *Some have partial translations.

You can add a translation in your language via Transifex. You can see some instructions on how to do that here.

Error handling:
Spoiler:
  • ACE EBUSY Error: with some files, ACE throws this error. Its a known ACE bug. If you rerun with the same arguments, then it will correct itself. So, the plugin will ask you to rerun. The error message is something like this:
    Code:
    Unexpected error: EBUSY: resource busy or locked, copyfile 'temp\path\OEBPS\Images\some_image.extension' -> 'report\folder\data\OEBPS\Images\some_image.extension'
  • On Windows: 'ace' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file: it means you didn't install ACE. See ACE installation.
