iBooks and LaunchBar

Post by blackketter » Tue Oct 29, 2013 12:27 am

Does anybody know of a way for LaunchBar to index books in iBooks?

I'm not sure if that would be possible without native support. Books are stored in:

~/Library/Containers/com.apple.BKAgentService/Data/Documents/iBooks/Books/

The folder also has a plist listing all the books and their file name. Any ePub that has been opened at least once becomes a folder. Even if it were a file, it would open with whatever is associated with ePubs. I'd imagine the only way LaunchBar could add support is with AppleScript, which iBooks lacks.
