Hi,

Thank you.
Well yes... but before starting to ask you many things, I would like you to join this Discord and to directly chat there.
TL;DR is I would like to compile KOReader for Android and optimizing it for my Max2 Pro device. First thing I would like to do is to remove all the things I do not need like internet connection.

But again, I think it’s more comfortable to speak there.

Cheers

That happens if you're trying to update from a apk with different signature. For example: update from F-droid to a github/rocks apk, update from a debug to a release apk, update from self-signed apk to any other.

You can remove the apk without loosing any configuration as long as you do not remove the /sdcard/koreader folder, where shared preferences are stored.

I would recommend you open an issue on GitHub or go to https://gitter.im/koreader/koreader so that there are more people who see and can respond to your questions. Also if something's unclear in the docs that way it has a significantly better chance of being fixed.

That's a bit backwards. Just build the thing first and then start modifying. Otherwise you'll have no idea whether you broke something or whether you didn't set it up right in the first place.

We don't support any "offline" device and some core features, like wikipedia, dictionary download, ota updates.., use it a lot.

Bear in mind that if you're trying to remove the android INTERNET permission without modifying the entire frontend you'll end with an app that crashes each time it tries to connect to something. Having an app crashing is not exactly an optimization.

More in general, stripping not needed parts of the code isn't really an optimization. The entire program logic is less than 100k lines of code, including device abstraction, framebuffer/input handling and ffi for a bunch of libraries.

My suggestion would be leaving the frontend as is and just don't use the network features. You can remove most of the plugins you don't need before building the apk without problem.

If you have technical questions about the android platform code you can ask in https://github.com/koreader/android-luajit-launcher.

Cheers

Removing the plugins isn't an optimization either though. It is in the sense that the program will start slightly faster (but for the most part not in a way you'll notice), but you can just disable them in the settings to achieve the same effect. Going through the effort of compiling a custom build just for that would be pretty much the opposite of optimizing anything.

Yup, not an optimization. But plugins and translations are the things that can be removed without any effort, so..

In the traditional sense of optimizations we have an open issue about integrating the eink update routines for onyx devices. Maybe mePy2 find it interesting:

Thank you guys. You are fast.

What I would like to achieve is a minimal version of the reader with very little functionality. So no plugins, no internet, even some formats support removed if necessary.

Maybe I didn’t specify that what I’m trying to achieve is another application, based on koreader, which has the above specifics.

As people mentioned, it isn't going to make anything any faster. The only thing you'll have done is a lot of work for a simpler UI .

So, it has nothing to do with optimizing KOReader for your device. It is more a new/rebranded app tailored for your needs.

Have fun with that but don't expect any kind of support, specially if you're going to remove parts of working code.

Ah; thanks!
I removed the old one and installed the new one; works great.
Thanks for the help!

Really it would be better if we could choose a personalized path for the sdr folders, between main memory (or a simple file) or book folder, each would choose according to their needs. Is this parameter not possible in the Settings ? Thank you

Nope. The only way to keep sidecar dirs (*.sdr) out of your way is to store books in a read only partition. This will keep your book history in /path/to/storage/koreader/history.lua.

There are a few reasons to keep sidecar dirs in the same path of books: easy sync, easy backup & restore, easy export, avoids hashing each book on an underpowered device, allows moving books...

The only downside I can see is that exploring a directory filled with books (and sidecar dirs) is not as clean as one with ebooks only. That issue is android (and desktop, dunno Pocketbook) specific because on the rest of platforms there are no filemanagers that can display these "crappy" files.

Hello! I use Koreader on Tolino Vision 4. Autorun SimpleInkLauncher - > Koreader -> I get to the filemanager (library). Can I make an option to open the last book I read? Thank you for a wonderful program!
