Hello,

I added them to the topic of requested plugins:

http://forums.gcstar.org/viewtopic.php?pid=246#p246

If a developer needs some help to create them (e.g. because he doesn't speak portuguese), she/he will come in this topic to ask you questions.

Hi,

What will be nice when asking a plugin for web search is to add a screenshot of the website with an explanation in english, to help developpers when they don't speak the requested language tongue

I can take a look in 2 weeks so if someone want to proceed it sooner, don't hesitate !

Hi Josevitor,

Here is a version of Buscapé. To be honnest I've got a lot of troubles to do this plugin ( there are different layouts on the website, no "stable" rules - for example when there are several authors for the book sometime the names are separated by "," sometime by ";" or by "-" ), and I found only few informations about the books ( title, author, editor, isbn, year of publishing, number of pages, cover and format ), and very often these informations are empties. In addition I haven't found description, information about series, edition, language. May I miss someting ?

Can you test the plugin, and tell me if you encounter troubles with it.

Have a nice day !

Re: Feature Request: Search brazilian books

Is the "Biblioteca Nacional - http://catalogos.bn.br" available yet?
I can't found it in the ...GCPlugins/GCbooks!

I want to do one more request: http://books.google.com.br (and the "Biblioteca Nacional" again if it doesn't exist)

Now I'm studding how to build my own Feature plug in, but it's not so easy.

Tank you

Maximiliano.

Hi Maximiliano,

No for instance I hadn't the time to do the plugin for "Biblioteca Nacional". So you are welcome if you want to do it by yourself  ( but if you want I can take a look for the end of September ).

I've added your request on google in the the list of requested plugins here http://forums.gcstar.org/viewtopic.php?id=72

Should you have a problem using GCstar, you can open a bug report or request some support on GCstar forums.
