Koreader Highlights utility

KoHighlights


KoHighlights is a utility for viewing and converting the Koreader's history files to simple text or html files.
This is a totally re-written application using the Qt framework (PySide).
The original KoHighlights (using the wxPython) can be found here.

Usage
  • Load items by:
    1. Selecting the reader's drive or any folder that contains books that where opened with Koreader. This will automatically load all the history files from all subdirectories.
    2. Drag and drop files or folders. This will load the files and/or all the files inside the folders.
  • View the highlights and various info for a book by selecting it in the list.
  • Save the highlights to the "Archive" and view them, even if your reader is not connected.
  • Merge highlights from the same book that is read in two different devices and/or sync its reading position.
  • Double click or press the Open Book button to view the book in your system's reader.
  • Save all the selected books' highlights in:
    1. a text/html file for every selected book or
    2. a single text/html file with all highlights combined
  • Clear the .sdr folders with the metadata or the books in the eReader.

What does "Batch Convert" mean, in this case? Are they being converted to simple .txt format/files?

The History files processing should be a real good thing for those working with highlights. Perhaps Markismus could place his notes in the History files, when he makes his note taking plugin/wiget.

Luck;
Ken

Yes.
There are two ways to do this.
One, is to select a directory with many history files, and a directory for the output text files.
The other, is to just drag and drop many files on the program and it will convert the ones that end to ".lua" AND have highlights in them to text files in the same directory as the dropped files.

Just find out that KoReader has its own place here!

It would be very nice if the moderators could move this thread there, where it would be more helpful.

Thanks

I did add a post with a link to the utility's Github page. Since your utility should work with any KOReader installation where the history/.sdr files can be accessed, it should get moved.

Luck;
Ken

New release of KoHighlights

Updated the first post for more info.

In a nutshell, I just release the v2 of the KoHighlights utility.

Its a different application, written from scratch using Pyside (Qt for Python) that has the same name with the old one because it has the same goal of reading and converting the KoReader's highlights to text.
But it has a nicer interface and its ready to also import the notes that the great Koreader developers will implement on day :-p

Tried installing but it won't work because it will not accept my Visual Studio installation (which I downloaded from MS).
Edit: I'm on Win 10.

I checked with the files that the installer suggests if missing from your system (Visual C++ 2008 9.0.30729.6161) also from Microsoft (x64, x86) in Win 10, and it works OK.
What is your version?
Is it x64?
Maybe you should also install the x86 version.

I actually tried both versions (system is 64bit but I also installed the 32bit version), with and without reboot and all, to no avail...

Edit: Great! I just had the system install a bunch of updates and repaired the two installations and now it works! Thanks for your help!

Edit 2: Fantastic tool!
