A new project, but would be great:
- Easy installation
- Built using Golang
- Responsive design
- Full-text search
- Highlight & Annotate
- Supports PDF & EPUB
Oh this seems to be completely dead now. Shame.

Anything that can replace it? I’ve been looking for years. Calibre is a desktop app, so it doesn’t count.

Maybe Calibre Web ?
@yusf probably not what you're looking for at all but just fyi there are browser addons that let you read ebooks in the browser (I installed one to try it out but then got annoyed that whenever I tried to download an ebook it opened in my browser instead! )

@jdaviescoates As I never read ebooks on LCD screens I'm mostly interested in a library web interface. I'd mainly like to be able to
- download ebooks to my e-ink reader
- share libraries with other users
- possibly share libraries with other instances
@girish My problem with all these solutions is this requirement:
using an existing Calibre database.
I find it really weird to have a dependency on a desktop app for this. A standalone ebook library service is what I want.
I curate https://library.uniteddiversity.coop which is mostly PDFs but I'd also like a nice way to present and share them. I'll probably just start using Surfer once you can sort by columns on public folders (and nicer icons - and ideally thumbnails - would be nice too).
One solution I used in the past is to use the Document Gallery WordPress Plugin which nice generates thumbnails and let's you add descriptions etc. It still works but hasn't been updated in years and is far from ideal for the sort of things you're talking about...
There is also this https://inventaire.io/ but it's for creating a p2p library of hard copy books rather than ebooks!
