Better sort & filter tools in the Bookshop page

#4 - Submitted by Kevin on 18 Apr 2023 (Updated: 19 Feb 2024) - Feature - Launched

Yes, yes, the DRM-free Bookshop page needs an overhaul.

I'd hoped we could get some other (cooler-looking) features out there first, but the feature that drives support for all those amazing bookshops needs some TLC. It helps everyone in the end.

Planned tools include:

  • Filter by Type (Books, Magazines, Comics, RPGs, etc.)
  • Filter by available Formats (ePub, Mobi, PDF, CBZ, CBR, AZW3, TXT, etc.)
  • Toggle to only show shops that still sell DRM-free titles
  • Sort by Title
  • Sort by Added Date
  • Search by title

Additional tools coming soon:

  • Display bookshop site favicon
  • Change View mode (cards, list, details)
  • Display number and selection of books in reader libraries from each shop
  • View all books in reader libraries from each bookshop
  • Display number of Wishlisted books from each bookshop
  • Introduce and filter by Genres

In addition, I'm also considering whether to include the Bundles list (which is on hiatus right now) on the Bookshop page too - making the page a central destination for discovering places to buy DRM-free ebooks, comics, magazines, RPGs and more.
