  • Calibre’s “content server” (a built-in web server - for use on your LAN by mobile devices) looks great over OPDS (say, from Librera Pro), but it looks pretty poor from a web browser - unless the “Book List” is customized to look nicer. In Calibre’s “Preferences” -> “Sharing over the net” -> “Book list template” tab, it starts off looking like this by default:

So I changed the pixel width to 300, and the template was changed as follows:

  {series_index} of <i>{series}</i>

  <b>Size:</b> {size}
  <b>Published:</b> {pubdate}
  <b>Publisher:</b> {publisher}
  <b>Timestamp:</b> {timestamp}
