I've just tried Plato 0.2.0 on my Aura One (the latest firmware and latest KSM) using tshering's script. I'm not at all familiar with Linux so I've no idea what's behind the code, so I can only comment on my user experience. It executed and it just looks beautiful, clean and sharp. Colour inversion, browsing, the bitonal setting, search and sorting all work very well. With tshering's script, the rotation is properly maintained, and everything is pretty much seamless on that front.

I'm no expert, but I presume some of the issues I've encountered might simply be a consequence of a lack of setting things up as Plato wants/needs things to be. For example, some settings don't seem to do anything, and I'm not sure if my device is at fault, or if it's because they aren't there yet. The brightness doesn't seem to work, nothing happens when I press the font button, etc.

Also, Plato found 4077 books in my library across 453 pages (the actual number is nowhere near that, it's something like 400 at most). Without going into the complications of having to compile a database, might a simpler solution be to simply display only the supported files? I have noticed that the list included various xml files from KOReader and files from Callibre folders, dictionary files, etc. I have found that I can actually navigate through the real files reasonably well, the main issue being wading through the junk files.

It might be prudent to make the alt key a toggle. When you're trying to input a 2 or 3-digit number into the page skip, it can get annoying. Also, I think that the authors' list needs a way of becoming larger, just to speed up the process of finding an author.

Finally, trying to open a larger epub file crashes Plato back to KSM. My specific files were Delphi editions of Balzac and Dickens, 31 megs and 50+ megs respectively, so it also might be due to the way the files were built? Either way, you can find the log in the spoiler below.

I realise it's early days, but I really like Plato, and with continued development, I can see it becoming my favourite software. I'm here for any and all testing that needs to be done.

Is Plato already supposed to remember the reading progress of a file or which file was opened last? Can't find that mentioned in the TODO.md file. At the moment, as soon as Plato is quit, that seems to be forgotten.

BTW, I really like the clean look of Plato's GUI, I'm looking forward to v0.3.0

The latter.

I might wire something to this icon, for now it's supposed to just describe what the slider does: change the font size.

I will address this problem, but I would recommend having your documents in a subdirectory of the SD card (and amend your settings.json accordingly).

You can already lock the ALT key by pressing it twice. But what I'll do in this particular case is just to instantiate the keyboard with ALT locked.

This UI element is supposed to be called the summary bar. For now it just displays categories but I had the idea (after having read Note brèves sur l’art et la manière de ranger ses livres in Penser/Classer by Georges Perec) of having a chain of sorting orders: in case of equality, the next sorting order would have been used. In this context, the summary bar could have been used to show the unique fields according to current sorting order. And selecting one of those fields would have switched to the next sorting order, etc.

To come back to the original question: you can already grow the summary bar by swiping from the inside to the outside of the bar, and shrink it by doing the opposite.

You can also set its initial size in settings.json, e.g.:
Code:
{ "summarySize": 2 }

It looks like a case of memory exhaustion. I will try to reproduce with large ePUBs.

Yes. All of this goes into the reader key of each entry in the DB.

I've released 0.2.1:
  • Unknown and hidden files/directories will not be imported.
  • The log file is now called info.log and becomes crash.log only after a crash.
  • I've applied a patch to mupdf to prevent the log file from being flooded with useless messages.

Hmm, Plato 0.2.1 gives me the following crash: Error: Can't load fonts.
Caused by: cannot open resource

Reverting to 0.2.0 works as previously.

Ah, now I see - it's only written to .metadata.json if you leave via top menu bar -> back button, but not via top menu bar -> menu -> "Quit" button.

JFYI, building plato-master stops at the moment with:
Code:
error[E0463]: can't find crate for `reqwest`
  --> src/importer.rs:23:1
   |
23 | extern crate reqwest;
   | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ can't find crate

error: aborting due to previous error

error: Could not compile `plato`.
I didn't see that particular problem with the previous version of Cargo.toml.

I've released 0.3.0.

New features:
  • Suspend/resume.
  • Power off.
  • Mount the SD cards.
  • Enable/disable the WiFi.
  • Set the frontlight levels (including the Aura ONE!), toggle the frontlight.
  • Battery capacity/status indicator.

Please note that Plato relies on /tmp/nickel-hardware-status for knowing when the USB cable is plugged. KSM changes /usr/local/Kobo/udev/plug and prevents it from writing to the aforementioned FIFO. I'll suggest a different approach to tshering when he returns.

I've only tested the suspend feature on the Glo HD, using the (experimental) standalone launcher. It is therefore not recommended to try to suspend for the moment.

I've started a manual that describes the user interactions.

I forgot to mention that the wifi-{enable,disable}.sh scripts won't work when Plato is launched via KSM: the required environment variables are defined late in rcS and KSM starts early.

Suspending/resuming works fine on the Aura ONE when Plato is launched with fmon.
