In this blog, we’ll be reporting about our work on LibX. Each post will highlight a feature and/or development. The purpose of the blog is to create a record of our work on LibX and share it with the public (our users and maintainers), but also to provide an area for references and discussion. Each blog post will allow the posting of comments.

  1. When Libx grabs a searched title from Amazon, it includes the information from () and [] bracketed sections for paperback or kindle or such. This is added to the title which means it can’t be found on our database.

    The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest: Book 3 of the Millennium Trilogy (Vintage Crime/Black Lizard) [Paperback]

    Is there a parsing FILTER OPTION to block (or stop at) bracketed parts of a title from being passed through?

    • This is true for the old LibX 1.5 code only. We’ll make sure to get better metadata for the LibX 2.0 LibApp. Currently, it uses there the ISBN only. In the future, we’ll want to support searches by ISBN & Title, depending on what the primary catalog of the active edition supports.

  2. Searches via ISBN & Title is essential to the success. Thanks for doing your best to makes sure everything maintains a level of awesomeness.
