Plugin manager #4159
"Kobo light"? is that for the warmth controls that some of the new Kobo devices have? The "Comfort lighting"? Some might think they can use their reader as a "flashlight" like with a Smartphone or that you can disable the regular front light, this way.
This could be a good place for some inline manual function descriptions, for the plugins.
Indeed, plugins could all have a
(I'm still not sure what zsync, kosync, evernote and calibrecompanion do :)
Can you give me short description for all plugins. Please :)
Here are the first few. Off to feed the cats.
Automatically turns the frontlight on and off once brightness in the environment reaches a certain level. Only supported on Kindle (?).
Collects and displays battery statistics.
Exports hightlights and notes to the Evernote cloud.
Keeps the device awake to prevent automatic Wi-Fi disconnects.
A basic text editor for making small changes to plain text files.
Something like this:
Perhaps replacing the URL with the link under "related WiKi" If we had a local html copy of the WiKi on our device, it would be the preferred linked source.
Retrieves RSS and Atom news entries and saves them as HTML files.
Suspends the device when no interaction for some time.
Controls the fronlight with gestures on the left border of screen.
Improves your reading speed with the help of two vertical lines over the text.
Allows connecting and transfering files to the device over SSH.
Shows system statistics.
Synchronizes the device time with NTP servers.
Service to other widgets: allows tasks to be run regularly in the background.
Alternative display modes for file browser and history.
How are you?
Synchronizes your reading progess to a server and across your devices.
Shows an alarm after a specified amount of time.
Keeps and displays your reading statistics.
Executes simple commands and shows their output.
Receives articles sent with the Send2Ebook PC/Android application.
Keep company to calibre :)
Allows browsing and searching Goodreads database of books: shows cover, description... (well, you know what it does better than me :)
It's used only by the AutoFrontLight plugin on Kindle Voyage and Oasis, and by the newer Kobo with warmth light (KoboPowerD:calculateAutoWarmth).
So, I guess these auto front light will just not work if one disables this plugin. But that's the purpose of disabling plugins :)
Mhhhh, there's something wrong with this PR.
to after this block, you are actually loading the plugin:
(You needed that to get its name and description.)
For example, background runner now runs its stuff even if disabled, because it does schedule itself in the body of the module, and not in a function:
I really don't see how to easily fix that...
