My parents lived on a farm in the western part of Germany. I was always fascinated by computers and software and the things you can do with them. I first did an apprenticeship as electrician and later on decided to study electrical engineering in a city nearby. After getting my engineer’s degree, I moved to Southern Germany, and I’ve been living and working there ever since.
I have been working for a Swiss company for 17 years now, developing industrial measurement equipment for water analysis.
Calibre-Web is a modern app for browsing, reading, organizing and downloading e-books. The project allows you to access and organize your e-books from anywhere in the world. You can download and install it directly from github.com/janeczku/calibre-web, or you can use one of the pre-built Docker images listed on the project page. The documentation is in the wiki.
I’m the only one.
I have loved reading books since my early childhood. After a holiday with more time for reading books than books, I bought one of these new e-book readers (a Sony PRS-505). I started organizing my e-books with the famous Calibre program. I didn’t like Calibre’s web interface, so I started searching for something more beautiful. After trying some programs I stumbled over Calibre-Web. It looked beautiful and had a feature every other program was missing: you could edit the e-book meta-data (like author, title and so on), which was to me important for a good e-book library. I soon discovered some problems, so I started enhancing the program.
A few things that I’m excited about:
An easy installable, easy usable web app for accessing and organizing your e-books.
