Very nice forum @rhodes

Why was it necessary to use Drupal for the book meta data? It looks very similar to @Snog 's movie and television add-ons. It would be great if someone created a book add-on for XF.

Is that a custom drupal code you have developed?
Yes, it is custom code, but unfortunately no complete addon or a standalone drupal module, @Dakis . There is also a REST API working so that you also can fetch data with a simple AJAX call.

Thank you @PaulK for your kind words. It was neccessary because Drupal can aggregate meta data very flexible. For example you could get books with more than five reviews and an average of 4.5, but only thrillers.
You can see an example here I did not find an addon that was able to do this. But of course I would prefer a XF only solution. Maybe one day we will see a kind of Content Management System for Xf .
