[GUI Plugin] Job Spy

[GUI Plugin] Job Spy plus GUI Tools (JS+):

Summary:
  • A tool bag of useful tools in two totally different categories: [1] GUI Related; [2] Job Details Dialog Related.

'GUI Tools'
:
  • Visualize Metadata (with export option)
  • Apply View Manager Views based on Virtual Library
  • Search Bar Dropdowns - Increase Visible Items and Saved Search History to 100
  • Edit Metadata Dropdowns - Increase Visible Items to 100
  • Keyboard Shortcuts to Auto-fill Textual Custom Columns
  • List Active Keyboard Shortcuts
  • Invert Current Selection of Books
  • Virtual Library Helper - Create Search Criteria Using Selected Book IDs
  • Virtual Library Helper - View VLs Sorted by VL Criteria
  • Mega-Metadata Reference Book Creation Dropdown Helper
  • Resize Columns to Fit
  • Compress Column Widths Uniformly
  • Select & Open Arbitrary Programs and Files
  • Change 'Last-Modified Date' of Selected Books
  • Back up and Restore 'Last-Modified Date' for all books in current library
  • Purge Library-specific Preferences [Selected Plug-ins]
  • Purge metadata.opf Backup Queue
  • Protect/Unprotect a Custom Column from the 'Edit Metadata' dialogs (excluding the 'S&R' tab within Bulk Edit).
  • Copy 'Saved Searches' of the Current Library to a Target Library
  • Automatically Delete Temporary 'Reading Lists' at Calibre Shutdown
  • Extract Original Title/Translator to Update Custom Columns (EPUBs)
  • Bulk Convert HTML Comments to Plain Text [Selected Books]

'Job Spy':
  • This efficient, time-saving and mouse-click-saving functionality allows you to easily and quickly view the Job Details of the last N jobs to execute via a single click to the Calibre ToolBar 'Job Spy' eye icon. Starting with the last to execute, the 'Job Details' are presented to you consecutively until your personal maximum number (N) has been reached. Close the currently shown 'Job Details', and the next will automatically be presented until N is reached. If you have no jobs, then nothing will be shown at all. If you frequently run a lot of jobs for which you need to view the Job Log as the job is running, or afterwards, this tool is for you.

Does this offer more information than the existing Jobs dialog that pops up when you click 'Jobs'? From the description it sounds like a convenience button to the same info.

UPDATE: Trying it out and examining the code, that's exactly what it does: Pop open the existing Jobs Log(s) as if you'd opened the Jobs dialog and viewed them from there.

@JimmXinu - you can put JobSpy in the context menu and assign kb shortcuts,

I put it in the context menu. For the mouse averse, Shift+Alt+J, then Alt+D (which doesn't always work for me) is an awkward key sequence, whereas menu key, then down/up arrows, can be done with one finger.

Job Spy with "Enable Viacam"

For those with hand movement and other physical challenges, Job Spy used with the utility "Enable Viacam" http://www.fosshub.com/Enable-Viacam.html works very effectively. Just look at the Job Spy icon, and it will click automatically. The job details dialog will pop open, and by looking at the close button repeatedly the desired number of job details will be presented automatically. Obviously a webcam is required, since the Enable Viacam tracks your eyes and face via a camera.

Version 1.0.3 New Tearoff Menu Items - "Bonus GUI Tools"

See the attached image.

For users of my CALM add-on, Job Spy's new "Bonus GUI Tools" functionality is highly recommended. As you well know, the GUI can have a huge number of Custom Columns in the consolidated CALM Target Library. The new functionality allows you to quickly expand and compress the columns.

The Job Spy ToolTips remind you that the superb 'View Manager' plug-in should be used to easily get back to your "normal" settings.

The above also applies to the users of my QuarantineAndScrub add-on.

Version 1.0.7 - New Bonus GUI Tool: Virtual Library Helper

Version 1.0.7 - 2016-04-03 New Bonus GUI Tool: Virtual Library Helper - Create Search Criteria Using Selected Book IDs [Max: 200]


The Bonus GUI Tool 'Virtual Library Helper' allows totally random and arbitrary book selections to be easily made into a Virtual Library.


Maximum: 200 selected books (to avoid Calibre GUI 'recursion' errors in processing extremely long search strings).

New Bonus GUI Tool: Virtual Library Helper - View VLs Sorted by VL Criteria

Version 1.0.8 - 2016-04-04 New Bonus GUI Tool: Virtual Library Helper - View VLs Sorted by VL Criteria

Also, you can copy and paste the VL Criteria into the Search Bar and change as needed.

The dialog survives a Library Change, so you can easily create complex VLs in a new Library using existing ones in another Library via copy and paste.


See the attached image.

Nice one

Suggestion : purely for marketing reasons, how about splitting the bonus tools off into a separate plugin - 'DaltonSt's Miscellaneous Tools (DMT)'

New option to specify the 'interval' used by the 'Edit Metadata' Dropdown daemon

Version 1.0.16 -2016-04-16 New option to specify the 'interval' used by the 'Edit Metadata' Dropdown daemon.

This is the number of seconds that the daemon 'sleeps' before checking for a newly-created Edit Metadata dialog for which to increase the number of visible items to 100.

The minimum is 5 seconds, and the maximum is 10 seconds. The default is 8 seconds.

Whatever value was set when the daemon was 'started' is what it will use until it is 'stopped' and then 'started' again. The JS GUI Tools menu has the option to Start/Stop the daemon. If you have configured it to automatically start after Calibre starts, then you must manually stop it and restart it after you have changed the number of seconds to sleep. Or, wait until Calibre restarts as normal.

Personally, I use 10 seconds because I don't immediately start clicking as soon as the Edit Metadata dialogs appear. The 'average' lag time is 10/2 = 5 seconds, although it can be almost 0 or a full 10 seconds. If you are a 'fast clicker', then 10 is not for you.

The interval impacts how frequently the daemon consumes extra CPU to do what it does because it is 'awake' more often or less often.
