Questions about setting up the Calibre development environment

I am a loyal user of Calibre. In order to modify the directory name and file name of the added book output, I have successfully implemented it on my windows, but I am a little curious about this construction method, because it is not the same as the way I met before same.:help: 1. How does it work? Why do I need to install calibre first and then set environment variables for the src directory of the source code? 2. What is the relationship between the source code and the installation directo...

Calibre won't pass cover page

The 64 bit Calibre Viewer in Windows 10 won't pass the cover page. None of the prescribed buttons work and no arrow for turning comes up on the page. By going to the TOC, I can go to the relevant Ch, but sometimes the only option that displays in the TOC is "Start". Pressing that does nothing. By going to "Edit book", I can see the information is there, it just can't be viewed. I have updated to 5.10.1, I have tried "repairing" Calibre, restarted PC, but the problem persists. Any suggestion...

10 Greenest U.S. Presidents

From the GardenRant Archives Originally published 1/21/09, the day after Obama’s first inauguration. Teddy Roosevelt, the winner! Whatever may happen over the next months and years, this has surely been a memorable past few days, and I have been as caught up in them as anyone. It makes me think of the types of policies I would hope for, particularly in terms of the natural world—how we live in it, use it, and change it. But it will take me a while to formulate those hopes and speculations. I...

Audiobooks and Chapter Titles

Hello All! It's been 2 years since my last post, and my e-book and audiobook collections grew from 700 to 2500, and 10 to 800, respectively (I am thankful). Without the help of those on this forum, this would not be a joy in my life. My audiobook folder is created with a shortcut link to the destination of the folder. Within that folder, I keep the cover image, inserts and a quick to open pdf version of ebook (if available). I can simply click on the mb4 audio file, and loads then plays...

New Push for Microstamping; Proponents Claim Technology ‘Has Arrived’

A new report claims microstamping technology “has arrived” and is ready. All that’s needed is legislation to make it a requirement. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Proponents of microstamping—the process or stamping an “alpha-numeric code” onto the primer surface of cartridge case when hit by the firing pin—claim the technology “has arrived, but needs legislation to push it through,” according to a new report released this week by the anti-gun Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence (EFSGV). “The next...

The Parsis who pedalled across the world

‘The Bicycle Diaries’ details how 12 cyclists set out as global explorers from 1923 to 1942 Last November, tired of being cooped up at home, travel enthusiasts Bakcen George, Allwyn Joseph and Ratish Bhalerao decided to ‘work from cycle’. Carrying their devices and basic necessities, the trio cycled from Mumbai to Kanyakumari — a journey of 1,687 km that took over a month — while meeting their daily work targets. An impressive feat, but not without precedent. Article by Aparna Narrain | The Hi...

Update for engadget recipe

The engadget.com website has recently changed some styles. The old recipe did not work properly in the last days. Although I am not completely sure whether the changes at engadget.com are completely finished already, I updated the recipe so the articles are fetched properly again. I also included a function to remove articles based on keywords in the article text. This is used to remove sponsored articles and a daily summary article which mainly contains links to previous articles of the day....

Catching Up With Chris Cheng About His Debut on TBS’s “Go-Big Show”

Photo credit: Courtesy of TBS U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)-Chris Cheng is not your average gun guy. For one, he is from the very gun unfriendly city of San Francisco, where he worked for Google. He decided to leave his job at the tech giant to pursue his passion for marksmanship. Without any formal training, he applied to be on the fourth season of “Top Shot.” The History Channel accepted his application and invited him on the show. Cheng had the odds stacked against him, but that didn’t stop him ...

PocketBook Touch HD 3

Thinking seriously of buying a Pocketbook reader. What is the battery life like on this model, does anyone know? Also, I'm a "load my whole library" onto the reader sort of person (I know, I know), so how would the library list cope (I tried this on my old Kobo and the answer was "badly"). Would I need a case, because they almost cost more than the device in Australia...? thanks all

regex for importing books with comment

In Calibre I have a custom column 'comment'. When I import a book like 'Lewis Carroll - Alice 01 - Wonderland # illustrated' the text after # should go to this column. Until a year ago I used for this purpose the regex: (?P(?:(?!\s-\s).)*)\s*-?\s*[0-9]*\s*(?P(?:(?![0-9]?[0-9-]\.?[0-9]*\s-\s).)*)?\s?(?P[0-9]+.?[0-9]*)?\s?-?[0-9]*\s*-\s(?P[^#]+)\s?(?P[#\s].*)? But this doesn't work anymore: the text 'illustrated' is not added to the comment column but to the comments section in the Metadata sc...

Is there a way to remove the gap between pages without merging?

I am trying to create a reflowable book in Sigil. Each page is its own separate html page in Sigil to allow for maximum speed while rendering the book in a ebook reader. I noticed that while displaying the book in Apple Books on iPhone or macOS, there is a gap between every page. All margins and padding are set to 0. I know if I combine all pages in one html page this problem will go away, however doing so will render the book too "heavy" as I am dealing with 500+ page books. Please take a lo...

No Evidence Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick was Murdered

More Protestors reach the Scaffolding. The crowds there continue to increase. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Facts are starting to seep out about Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick’s death.  There has been an intense push by the Media, the Left, and most of the ruling class to cement into the public’s mind the narrative he was murdered by Trump supporters. The cause of death is unknown. There is no evidence officer Sicknick was struck by a fire extinguisher. There does not appear to be any evide...
