a ebook manager built around isbnlib

Project description


a cli ebook manager built around isbnlib

currently supports epub and pdf

the whole thing is pretty much just a weekend project, so i would be happy about reported issues or pull requests!

Build Status



just python3 and pip should be fine


pip install lspace


after installation, you should run

lspace init

this will setup a new configuration file, which you can edit to specify the structure of your library, for example.



lspace import path/to/ebook.epub

lspace import path/to/folder/*

searching your library

lspace list QUERY [--path]

for example,

lspace list programming --path

would return something like



lspace list dwarf

would return return

Peter Tyson - Getting Started With Dwarf Fortress

removing stuff

lspace remove QUERY

this command will ask you before it actually deletes stuff :)

Peter Tyson - Getting Started With Dwarf Fortress
delete this book from library? [y/N]:

exporting books

lspace export QUERY ~/some/folder/ --format mobi

would convert all books matching on QUERY to 'mobi' and export them to ~/some/folder

to actually export to another format, you need "ebook-convert", which is part of calibre!

why "L-space"?

its named after discworlds library-space dimension :)
