Progress sync between koreader and ios
#1  Joretapo 10-26-2020, 01:36 PM
Hello everyone,
I have been browsing the board and using the information to install koreader on my clara hd. I also installed calibre on my computer. It is a nice setup but i d like to be able to continue reading on my iphone.

Here is my question :
Can someone recommend an app for ios that can sync book progress with koreader on clara hd?

Thanks in advance

(This also probably ought to be moved to the KOReader forum ^^).

While the answer's probably going to be no, you'll have to detail which app you're reading with on iOS for a definitive answer (which is going to be no ^^).

As there's no standard for this (anywhere), the usual approach for multi-platform reading is to rely on the native KOReader <-> KOReader sync feature.
Except KOReader doesn't run on iOS, because Apple.

Thanks for your answer, sorry for posting here, if a moderator can move the post to the koreader forum.
Right now i use ibooks bit it obviously won t work so i m willing to use whatever app can sync with koreader.

Then, yeah, the answer is no, because Apple x2 ^^.

I wonder if it would run in iSH + VNC.

The actual UI relies on SDL2 on standard Linux, so, assuming that runs, why not (it does apparently work in WSL, for example).

Otherwise, a CLI-only workflow just to pull data out of it would require "some" Lua scripting. And would only cover half of the equation, since if you're not actually *reading* with KOReader, you may have your data, but it's data that nothing else will know what to do with ^^.
