[Metadata Source Plugin] Baen

This plugin is for scraping book metadata from www.baen.com. This is a direct replacement for the Webscription plugin which is now deprecated and should be uninstalled.

Books that you previously linked with the "Webscription:" identifier will continue to work with this plugin, however any new metadata downloads will use a "Baen:" identifier instead.

Main Features:
  • Can retrieve title, author, comments, publisher, publication date, rating and covers
  • Also retrieves a Baen id, which can be used to directly jump to the page for a specific book from the book details pane.

Special Notes:
  • Requires Calibre 0.8 or later.

Installation Notes:
  • Download the attached zip file and install the plugin as described in the Introduction to plugins thread.
  • Note that this is not a GUI plugin so it is not intended/cannot be added to context menus/toolbars etc.

Paypal Donations:
  • If you find this or any of my other plugins useful please feel free to show your appreciation. I have spent many hundreds of unpaid hours in their development and support so any encouragement for me to continue is appreciated!

Version History:
Spoiler:
Version 1.0.0 - 10 Aug 2022
Initial release of plugin, replacing Webscription

What is the exact url template of the baen: identifier? I already have a custom one named the same thing and want to make sure it's compatible.
