Plugin Dev - Examples/Resources

Hello,

This is my first attempt at trying to write a plugin. The existing documentation is good, but i am looking for two functions:

1. Add a new custom column during Initialize()
2. Being able to request that information and modify via an HTTP RPC.

i do not expect a tutorial on that as a response, but if anybody knows any resources i can look at, or a plugin that already does that, and i can look at the code.

thank you,
-=- adamtg

It looks like the Reading List plugin (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=134856) does custom columns, you could see custom column code from there to see how to add/read them.

As for the HTTP RPC, I'm not aware of any plugin that listens and processes RPC events but you could probably look though calibre's code (Kovid or anyone more familiar with the calibre code could point you at the right place) to see how to best handle listening and responding to requests, or point out any reason why that may not be such a good idea.

Look at smart_device/driver.py for an example of a server that listens for connections. Other than that there are no plugins that I know of that create servers, HTTP or otherwise.

calibre ships with cherrypy (which it uses for its content server) so you should be able to create a http server with that fairly easily.
