Feature request: OPDS support #11
I'm one of the co-editor of the OPDS specification, an Atom-based standard for media distribution.
OPDS would be a great fit for LibraryBox: with dozens of applications supporting OPDS integration, people could easily add a LibraryBox catalog in their favorite application in order to browse, search and download ebooks.
While OPDS is primarily used for ebook distribution, it's actually not tied to any specific media, and since OPDS feeds are valid Atom feeds, a LibraryBox OPDS catalog would actually work with all media, any OPDS client and any RSS/Atom client.
There's a vibrant ecosystem around OPDS along with specifications (http://opds-spec.org), validation tools (http://feedbooks.github.io/opds-test-catalog/, http://opds-validator.appspot.com/) and easy to parse presentations (http://discover-opds.org/) that should help people that are not familiar with OPDS yet, and I'll be happy to help with any questions/requests too.
