• OPDS catalog (OPDS library)

  • What is an OPDS directory?

OPDS catalog (Open Publication Distribution System) is a format for aggregating electronic publications based on the Atom and HTTP protocols.. Bla, bla, bla... :-)

Main thing: with this technology, you can access your personal Internet library directly from your favorite reading program. All your authors, genres, tags, series, etc. are available directly from the "reader". And of course you can download files with books in one click.

More information about access, settings and usage rules will be available after registrations...
