metadata-readers

A collection of metadata reader plugins for calibre.

Plugins

pdf-metadata:A pdf metadata extraction plugin for calibre. This plugin is a replacement for the stock pdf metadata plugin, that parses the contents for arxiv identifiers. If one is found the the first pages, it is added in the Ids field.
djvu-metadata:A djvu metadata extraction plugin for calibre. Extracts cover from djvu files.

Dependencies

These plugins have two external dependencies:
  • pdftotext: for extracting content
  • pdftoppn: for getting the cover
  • djvulibre: for manipulating djvu files

pdftotext and pdftopnm are both provided by the package poppler on Arch, poppler-utils on Ubuntu, or maybe xpdf on windows (untested)

Installation

Just go to the plugin directory and type:

make install

This makes a zip package with the code and installs it in the user's calibre directory (~/.config/calibre on Arch linux)
