I’ve just added support for OPDS at the DOKK library. This was a feature request by DustDFG, who also helped me write the source for implementing it.
OPDS is a standard, that allows OPDS clients to browse catalogs and download books locally. I’ve tested it with two readers, Foliate and Thorium (pics below). Unfortunately I didn’t have a lot of luck with Calibre; it’s got two plugins but none of them seem to work.
I have to admit that this is really cool! Even if I’m making the DOKK website as a friendly entry point for accessing the data, ultimately I really want people to reuse the database in their apps! So, watching it work like this is really amazing and it gives me a feeling of awe that I haven’t felt in quite some time!
