A calibre plugin that generates Word Wise and X-Ray files then sends them to Kindle. Supports KFX, AZW3 and MOBI eBooks.

Languages X-Ray supports: Català, Dansk, Deutsch, English, Español, Français, Italiano, Lietuvių, Nederlands, Norsk bokmål, Polski, Português, Română, Ελληνικά, Русский, 中文, 日本語.

X-Ray doesn't support macOS, because macOS prohibits calibre from loading unsigned library.

How to use

pacman -Syu --needed calibre

  • Install KFX Input plugin for KFX books(optional).

  • Set preferences

    Enable "search people" option for nonfiction books and novels that have character pages on Wikipedia to add people descriptions in X-Ray.

  • Connect Kindle to calibre, select one book or multiple books then click the plugin icon or menu.
  • Never add ASIN to your book, that will cause Kindle to replace Word Wise and X-Ray files.
  • Don't add soft hyphens, it will cause the plugin to produce a mediocre X-Ray file.
  • This plugin requires access to https://files.pythonhosted.org (download dependencies) and https://raw.githubusercontent.com (download NLTK and spaCy model) at first run, and https://wikipedia.org every time if X-Ray is enabled. These domains might be blocked in some countries.
