So - what am I doing wrong?
Did you restart your Kindle ?
It needs to re-read the json file.

Ahh - that's what I wasn't "getting" - thanks!

I haven't tried out the program yet, I am still installing it. I still have one remark on the installation - if your internet connection is via proxy, curl is not able to download the files.
I do not know how often this happens - as far as I see nobody complaint about this, so I not sure that a patch is needed.
However if someone needs to fix it - add to all lines in the bat file that start with curl, the "-x myproxy:myport" option.
curl -o python.msi
curl -x proxy:8080 -o python.msi

can the collections change take effect immediately? or have any method that allow kindle to reload the collection.json file without restart?

I registered just to thank you for a great app. I was looking all over for a easier way to organize my kindle, and this works perfectly.

Using Linux Mint 10.10

Given that collections.json is presumably a JSON file ;-) is it possible to create one from scratch? I have a Kindle but don't plan to register it. I've got TONS of Linux / FOSS documents, most of which are PDF's. I want to load the Kindle up with those, and have no intention of hooking into Amazon. But collections would be nice.

AFAIK, even a 'from scratch' json collections file won't do the trick on an unregistered device (I may be wrong, though, so you're welcome to try).

I found a lead at:

And upon reboot, I can see a collection, but it appears to be empty and nothing can be moved into it. I can rename it or delete it. I may have to cave to the corporate machine (unlikely) or live with a very long list of PDFs.

And for those who are curious, the format is much simpler than I thought (assuming it's correct):

{"collection name@en-US": {"items":["*sha1","*sha1","*sha1",...], "lastAccess":longInt}, "collection name@en-US": {"items":["*sha1","*sha1","*sha1",...], "lastAccess":longInt}
where collection name should be pretty obvious, sha1 is the hex string for the SHA1 hash of each file in the collection, and longInt is a long integer representation of the date. The Kindle overwrites this. The Python program sets it to zero initially, but when I fetched it back after uploading it and rebooting, the Kindle had changed it.

On this program i can not see "directory" AUDIObooks.

(It is interesting to put these files in the collections of kindleabra, "someone can tell the programmer to allow see that folder?

should not be complicated, because if we see the pictures folder.

bye, and thanks.

pd: "Audible" (name of directory, similar "picture" o "documents")

OKis ¿?
