 +====== ebmeta ======
 +
 +{{ ::​icon.png?​nolink|}} <wrap file>​ebmeta</​wrap>​ is a tool for editing metadata in an ebook file (Epub, Mobipocket, or PDF). When the first edit is made, the entire ebook file is backed up to <wrap file>​./​.backup/​FILE.backup</​wrap>​ under the folder where the working file is, to allow for safely resetting.
 +
 +Calibre and exiftool are used to write metadata changes to the ebook file, but ebmeta doesn'​t interact with any databases like your Calibre library. <wrap file>​ebmeta</​wrap>​ allows you to edit metadata in your ebook library directly in your file collection.
 +
 +Fields that are available for editing in Epub files are:
 +
 +  * title; title sort
 +  * authors; author sort
 +  * publication date; publisher
 +  * book producer
 +  * isbn; uuid; language
 +  * tags; rating
 +  * series; series index
 +  * description
 +
 +Fewer fields are available in Mobipocket and PDF files.
