This can be handy to give students or teachers an off-line version of a book, which they can enjoy in their favourite ebook reader on their smartphone, tablet or PC, e.g. FBreader for Android or Lucifox for Firefox.

    Haakon,

    Many thanks for sharing this plugin with the Moodle community. Please review the validation results and fix all of the issues mentioned. These changes are typically pretty easy to make but if you have any questions just let us know. In particular,

    Warning Release name ($plugin->release) not found in version.php

    I noticed that the zip files you uploaded did not specify for which version(s) of Moodle that they are intended but in the README file it said 2.3+ so I went ahead and selected that. I am testing with Moodle 2.7. I was successfully able to install the plugin and it appears to function as expected.

    Please review http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Plugin_validation#Recommended_URLs and then edit the plugin entry to provide the source, tracker, and documentation URLs that will enable others in the community to more actively participate in using and maintaining this plugin.

    Please consider adding a screenshot of your plugin to help folks get an idea of what it looks like when installed.

    For now, I am going to mark this plugin as needing more work until we get the above issues resolved (mainly the URLs for source, tracker and documentation). Thanks for your patience with the review and approval process. Please do not hesitate to let me know if there is anything I can do to be supportive of your efforts.

    It is also encouraged to follow Moodle's coding style as outlined in:

    http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Coding_style
    http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Coding

    Tthe code checker plugin can be quite helpful in fine tuning your code and can be found at:

    https://moodle.org/plugins/view.php?plugin=local_codechecker

    You may wish to consider using that tool to further improve your plugin. Below, are the initial results:

    Hi, Anthony! Lucimoo is developed by Ordbrand at http://lucidor.org/ . I will forward your remarks to him.
    Cheers, Haakon

    Haakon - Thanks for the updated version of the plugin which seems to address the previously mentioned copyright issues. I was able to get the plugin to install with no issues using Moodle 2.7 and it functions as expected. Before approving, I would like to see some of the requested URLs for the source code, tracker and documentation so that the community can participate in giving feedback.

    From you comment above about Lucidor.org this is not code that you wrote but it is code that you would like to share with the Moodle community. It may be good to extend an invitation to the author (if you know the person, I am presuming it is Mikael Ylikoski) to serve as maintainer here in Moodle plugins. I also noticed MDL-37199 and have commented there that I think the best thing is to get things approved here. To help move things forward, I think it may be good to create a Github repository for the code (namely, moodle-booktool_exportepub) so that we have source control, and tracker URLs. These allow the community to collaborate with you in maintaining the code.

    Similar to the epub book import tool, since the plugin is fairly simple to use, you could simply point to the README file. A screenshot would be nice showing the options for exporting epub (but not necessary). Please do not hesitate to let me know if there is anything I can do to be supportive of your efforts. Peace - Anthony

    Thanks for the review Anthony. My +1 to go live with this once the missing meta-data are filled as you suggested. Haakon, you may wish to check https://docs.moodle.org/dev/Plugin_contribution_checklist#Meta-data for more details.
