Setup your own Ebook Manager using Calibre (web)

What is Calibre?

by leram84

The calibre Content server allows you to access your calibre libraries and read books directly in a browser on your favorite mobile phone or tablet device. As a result, you do not need to install any dedicated book reading/management apps on your phone. Just use the browser. The server downloads and stores the book you are reading in an off-line cache so that you can read it even when there is no internet connection.

How to setup Calibre?

<path/to/books/to/add/to/calibre:/books_to_add:ro
$ docker-compose up -d
docker exec -ti calibre-web bash
root@<containerID>:/# calibredb add --add /books_to_add/* --with-library <name e.g. packtpub>
