EpubMetadataReader

A library for getting all of the metadata from an epub.

Features

The EpubMetadataReader can quickly pull all of an Epub's information from within the OPF files located within.

The Future

This currently only supports Epub 2.0 files. (It will read 3.0 files, but miss some data) - Support for 3.0 will be added in the future.

Example

            //If you want to have a full Library of Epub information, instantiate a Library First.
            EpubLibrary Library = new EpubLibrary();
            
            //Instantiate a new Epub Reader
            Epub epubBook = new Epub();
            
            //We are going to get every Epub out of this directory
            foreach (string directory in Directory.EnumerateDirectories(StringDirectoryLocation))
            {
                //We are looking for only the files that are Epub. Ignore everything else.
                foreach (string file in Directory.EnumerateFiles(directory, "*.epub"))
                {
                    //Read a book by passing the file location
                    //Add book to Library of books
                    Library.Books.Add(epubBook.ReadEbook(file));
                    //We want to reset our epubBook object so it is ready for new data
                    //If you don't do this, you'll have tons of duplicate data.
                    epubBook.Reset();
                }
            }
