Web Interface

I was curious if it's possible to run Calibre on a linux system that is CLI only?

Are there any plans in the future to have the User Interface converted to a web based interface? That would allow calibre to run on an gui-less OS also while providing access to the UI via web page.

see the calibredb command-line interface to the library database, and ebook-convert for the conversion pipeline.

You can also use "calibre-debug -c /path/to/script.py" to run python scripts in an environment that has the calibre codebase available for import.

It is on the long-term TODO list to create some kind of multi-user mode, I assume it will be usable over HTTP.

I'm also looking for a way of doing this. I run a Linux server for an intranet and I'd like to share my library by running calibre on that server without having to install all the GUI-related stuff (calibre pulls around 300MB dependencies and that seems overkilled just to have a http server for accessing the books database).

Look at COPS (it has a thread in the Related Tools subforum). Lightweight (it handles my 116K library without a hitch on a little Synology DS213j NAS) and does the job fine.

Ditto to COPS or other tools.

calibre depends on its dependencies, there is no way around it. On the other hand, disk space is pretty cheap nowadays, and calibre has a headless Qt5 plugin that greatly reduces the server-only memory usage and eliminating the need for xvfb (new since calibre v2.x).
