BookPedia ISFDB Search Support

Postby djwudi » Tue Feb 12, 2019 1:38 pm

I'd love it if support for searching the ISFDB could be added to Bookpedia. There's a simple web API available, and it is limited in what search parameters it will accept (one access point only accepts ISBN, another accepts "external identifiers", but the link to what exactly those are is broken...oops).

I downloaded the sample plugin Xcode file, but, well, I don't know nearly enough about coding to be able to put it together myself. It _seems_ like it should be simple to do, but appearance and actuality are two very different things. :)

Thank you for the link and info. Looks like an excellent candidate to update my plugin architecture to swift and put it on GIT hub for users to more easily contribute and maintain the plugins they are interested in. I'll come back around to this once I am done with the current releases.
