Here is COPS : Calibre OPDS (and HTML) PHP Server - Technology and me
Why ? In my opinion Calibre is a marvelous tool but is too big and has too much dependencies to be used only for its content server. That's the main reason why I coded this OPDS / HTML content server. I initially thought of Calibre2OPDS but as it generate static file no search was possible. So COPS's main advantages are : No need for many dependencies.No need for a lot of CPU or RAM.Not much code.Search is available.With Dropbox / Owncloud it's very easy to have an up to date OPDS content server.100% OPDS valid code (checked with was my first PHP experiment and so fun to code. Disclaimer It's been reported as working on most web servers (Nginx, Apache, Cherokee, Lighttpd, IIS) and is used a lot on NAS (Synology, QNap, ReadyNas). I personally protect my COPS catalog with Basic HTTP auth and HTTPS. As I already said, I had never coded in PHP before so I'm not proud at all about the code quality. Features Demo Install

BookServer: A Plan to Build an Open Web of Books The Internet Archive has just unveiled their ambitious project called BookServer, which will allow users to find, buy, or borrow digital books from sources all across the web. The system, built on an open architecture and using open book formats, promises that the books housed there will work on any device whether that's a laptop, PC, smartphone, game console, or one of the myriad of e-Readers like Amazon's Kindle. The project's lofty goal is to essentially create an open web of books where anyone can publish their books and make their content available via search. Any Book, Open Formats Although still in the early days of development and potentially taking years to complete, the BookServer project will allow search engines to index books from all over the web. An Open Marketplace for eBooks Today, a few booksellers have partnered with the BookServer system including Feedbooks, O'Reilly, Adobe, and the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) project.
