I’m transferring a(n already existing) small library catalog (~ 2.500 books) to Kirby. After using some awkward CSV export/Excel scripting, I managed to export an individual .txt file for each book that corresponds with the blueprint I’ve set up in Kirby.
This is one example:
Title: Dubuffet Typographer ---- Author: Leguillon, Pierre ---- Abstract: A tribute to the French artist Jean Dubuffet (19011985) and to the typographic strategies with which Dubuffet achieves, on a visual level, his plan to destroy language through books and lithographs. Traveling to public and private archives such as la Fondation Dubuffet in Paris, the Bibliothèque Kandinsky at Centre Pompidou or to IMEC in Caen, Pierre Leguillon has photographed ephemera such as invitations, posters, catalogs, artist's books, flyers, tickets, and record sleeves. These images were then used to execute a recadrage (re-framing) of Jean Dubuffet and his activities. Like a meticulous detective, Leguillon shows us how for each project, Dubuffet invented a new way of writing and composing text quite possibly by simply improvising. ---- Pages: 364 ---- Year: 2014 ---- Publisher: Presses Du Reel ---- City: Dijon ---- Url: https://www.lespressesdureel.com/EN/ouvrage.php?id=2960 ---- Isbn: 9782930667058 ---- Number: 2670 ---- Category: Typography ---- Location: Arnhem ---- Status: available
Now I’m wondering: What would be the smartest way to batch-upload and structure these ~2.500 .txt files? It would be fantastic to avoid creating subfolders as they are not really necessary in this case.
Also, the files are currently named after the respective ‘book number’ (which is just incremental, so they go from 1 all the way through ~2.500).
Curious to hear how this could be done!
