Description

Information for power users on EasyBookshelf's settings files

Solution

When starting EasyBookshelf, it creates a settings file based on some default settings and the resulting settings file is called "settings.xml" and is stored here:

%appdata%\Roaming\Dolphin\LocalService\settings.xml

It is also possible for power users to manually override some of the EasyBookshelf settings, and this can be done by creating a file called "default_settings.xml" and store it in one of the following two locations:

%programdata%\Dolphin\EasyBookshelf

%appdata%\Dolphin\Localservice

When EasyBookshelf starts and no "settings.xml" file is found, it will check if "default_settings.xml" can be found in one of the two locations above. 
The "default_settings.xml" file can look like this:


C:\tmp\bookshelf
C:\tmp\bookshelf\podcasts

2
5
2
50
2

255,0,0
255,255,255
80,80,80
160,160,0

true
true
false
false
true

The settings above are read by EasyBookshelf, but please note that this xml files do not need to contain the full set of settings. A power user may, for example, . only choose to have only the download settings like this:


C:\tmp\bookshelf

In this case, the setting for the download path will be taken from the "default_settings.xml" file and all other settings will be created and defined by EasyBookshelf.
