The documentation is still hosted here as a wiki on Welcome from the calibre2opds team! The calibre2opds tool can generate OPDS and HTML catalogs from the metadata of the Calibre ebook library manager. These catalogs can then be used both to browse your ebook library online and also to download books on demand. Since Calibre includes its own Content Server you might want to look at our feature comparison to help you chose between them. With the help of sharing services like Dropbox, the ebook files along with the OPDS and HTML catalogs can be automatically published to the web. There is a calibre2opds forum at GetSatisfaction where you can discuss calibre2opds; raise questions; suggest features that you would like to see included in future; or simply or simply tell us what you like or don’t like in the calibre2opds.

Saving Venice's Canals: The Unseen Workers Who Preserve the City - Daniel Fromson - Life A new website, Venice Backstage, shows what goes into keeping an iconic destination from falling victim to tides, humidity, and salt Many of the 15 to 20 million tourists who flock to Venice each year undoubtedly know that Italy's city of canals is slowly sinking, but far fewer probably give much thought to a less dramatic threat: the daily tides that continually erode the foundations of buildings, as well as the constant motion of waves and the salty humidity that also threaten the city's structures. These forces, according to Insula, a public company founded in 1997 to oversee the city's maintenance, cause "the most serious damage"—yet the company's efforts to combat the sea and keep Venice beautiful occur almost entirely behind the scenes.
