I was able to import a kfx book, convert it to epub, and view it in Calibre's internal viewer. I make use of folder actions to copy a .mobi, .azw, and .azw3 from My Kindle Content to the auto-calibre folder. This folder tells Calibre to import the book automatically which then I have rules set up to convert to epub etc... My question is when it copies the main file to auto-calibre it doesn't import correctly. Is there a way to look at the name of the file and then go to the My Kindle Content folder and then look for that file there to import?

Trying to do that within this plugin would be messy. It isn't something that I would want to do.

You have a couple of alternatives.

When you find a book in KFX format in My Kindle Content you could zip the content of the book's folder, rename that to have a .kfx-zip extension and put that file in the auto add folder, instead of just the main book file.

Or you could write a new calibre File Type plugin that would be activated when you put something in the auto-add folder and would then perform the actions described above, searching My Kindle Content for a matching book folder, zipping it up, etc.

I'll have to see if I can create an Automator script to zip up the files.

I've wanted to get into plugin writing. I have an infatuation with k2pdfopt and now this file type plugin idea. So, I may look around the forums on where to get started on plugin development. I know Python but definitely not an expert.

Thanks.

i'm using MacOS high Sierra 10.13.4 and have tried to download KFX Input.zip (119.9 KB, 3722 views) trough CALIBRE ''download a plugin from a file''.

No file to open was accessible.

Any idea what should be done to open the right file ?

I recommend downloading and installing via the calibre GUI following the instructions under "How do I install a plugin using Plugin Updater?" in the Introduction to plugins post.

thanks i followed the instruction you gave and have progressed.

However i'm still blocked by DRM.

I need to deDRM the book i bought on Kindle to read it on my KOBO reader.

Is there any simple procedure to follow to solve this issue.

thanks

Before I post to GitHub, I wanted to check on where in the process I'm having a problem. I'm sending a kindle book from my Amazon account to my PC. Then I upload the book into Calibre. However, there's no attached metadata- no title, no author, so it's just generic codes. The book is readable, so technically the import is working, right? Is there a Calibre -> Add Book setting I need to change? It currently converts imports to MOBI. Should it be ePub? Is there a way to make setup for one library and a different one for another library? Or is it a kindle conversion plugin setting I need to change? Thank you very much!
