Hello! I am a brand new Emby user and I am really loving it! Consequently, I am also a bibliophile, and have hundreds of physical books. I would love to be able to catalog, tag, check out and otherwise manage my collection in Emby. I have seen some mentions of the MB Bookshelf plugin but it seems to be centered around eBooks, and it appears to have lost interest perhaps, with the last post about it over a year ago although I am still researching. My thought was to put feelers out there for a book cataloguing plugin I could write (I'm a developer by trade, mostly Java and C#), although I am not sure this is the correct forum for discussing such ideas. I am not sure if it would perhaps mean working with the aforementioned plugin or starting afresh. Ideally, there would be functionality within at least the iOS and Android apps to scan or manually enter ISBNs to put into Emby which would use sources such as LibraryThing, Library of Congress or Amazon. Maybe Goodreads could play a pivotal part as well. Since it already offers such functionality for the most part, perhaps a plugin could just integrate with those sites, essentially using them as a backend (API keys? OAuth?). I haven't thought this through thoroughly; this was just a high-level idea. But I would be interested in developing such a plugin, and essentially was just trying to gauge if anyone else would be as well. Lastly I am looking forward to contributing to Emby, although aside from general pages on how to contribute to Github projects, I haven't found much documentation on how to get started specifically with Emby contributions. The Markdown file for the "main" project is empty, and since anyone can create an issue, I haven't found any guidance as to which issues are OK to tackle, although I am assuming that if you want to, you just confirm that it is indeed a bug and fix it. I also am aware of the Feature Request forum, but since I'd be developing it I wasn't sure if that was the right place. I also found this page but it is over two years old: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/8049-available-projects/ Many thanks!
