Calibre2opds 3.3 beta program well underway!

The beta program for the calibre2opds 3.3 release is already well underway with a significant number of new features already added (as well as bug fixes against the 3.2 release).

    Hi, I noticed that using the .html index entry, all pages are generated with the following header in clear text (between “Calibre Library” Title and menu bar:

    Catalogue généré le 1 nov. 2013

    Tried with iExplorer 8 and 10. misinterpretation of html code or is it a bug in header.html file generation ?

      Strange.. I’ve typed a misintepreted html statement and your site displays it correctly.
      I will replace the open and close quote (“” by “/” and “\” to have it in clear text :
      /!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC “-//W3c//DTD html 4.01//EN” “http://www.w3c.org/tr/html4/strict.dtd”\
      /p class=”dateGenerated”\
      /small\Catalogue généré le 1 nov. 2013//small\

    Not quite sure what you are asking? There is meant to be a line that displays the date the catalog was generated on in that position that is displayed in small text. For instance in English mine reads “Catalog generated on Nov 3, 2013”. I assume yours is in a language other than English?

    It would be quite easy to update the transformation XML to place this at the bottom of the pages if users express a real desire for this to happen.

    I am interested by the new future possibility to “Allow Calibre Custom Column values to be displayed in Book Details”
    Do you have a date in view for the 3.3 version ?
    Bests regards

      This facility is already available in the 3.3 beta releases available from the Calibre2opds download site. I am now interested in feedback on what users think of the implementation so far. The online documentation has already been updated in line with what has so far been implemented.

      I have no idea when the 3.3 final release will be available as it depends on just what facilities it is decided to include, and how long they take to implement. In the meantime I would suggest you use the beta release. It is just as stable (if not more so) than the last full release. It is labelled beta as there are still new features being worked on.

    Thanks, it works
    I thought also it would be possible to use a new column as an index, like authors, series) ?
    When you create it in Calibre, it appear on the small OPAC (
    So we can make restriction with it.
    But that doesn’t appear in CalibreOPDS.
    I wanted to create for example categories of date with sub-categories (possible to create with personnal columns in Calibre),
    PS: Si quelqu’un peut m’expliquer en français,ce serait trop génial !!

    I am afraid the link you give is one that is local to your home network so I cannot view it! That means I have to guess what you are asking for.

    There is a work package (http://calibre2opds.myjetbrains.com/youtrack/issue/c2o-156) that is aimed at allowing Custom Columns to be used to create new catalog sub0sections. I expect this is what you are asking about? Work on this is already well under way and it will be part of the final 3.3 release. Probably a test version will be available in the next few weeks.

    Another work package (http://calibre2opds.myjetbrains.com/youtrack/issue/c2o-157) is aimed at extending the Calibre2opds search syntax to allow custom columns to be used as [art of search expressions. This one appears to be technically difficult so is quite likely to not get done for the 3.3 release.

    When is the “Destination is Catalog Only” option going to be available?

    Not sure about the exact date other than to it is likely to be days/weeks rather than months (depending on my free time). This is a feature I added for my own use so that I can have a free-standing catalog that I can use off-line so I have some interest in getting it finished! Much of the development is already done so it is just a case of finishing it off and then testing the results.

    In fact I am hoping that all the features that are showing in the GUI but are currently disabled will be finished soon, and when that is the case I am likely to decide that is enough features added for the result to be the final 3.3 release, and new features (if any) will be relegated to a 3.4 development track. All of them have most of the required development done so like the option you mentioned it is just a case of doing the final work and testing the results.
