I just wanted to share with you the reading tracker I’ve built .
For some context, I discovered Coda by chance, maybe 2 months ago, searching something completely different.
I didn’t test it right away because at that time, I had no idea of a database I could use as a test drive.
But then I began to read Spawn, a comics which I bought as “Collected”.
Usually, I use an app’ on my phone to track my readings, but, because there’s no page numbers in the comics, I couldn’t use it (well, I didn’t want to have to count each page I just read, I just wanted to enjoy the Comic )
Plus, AFAIK, despite being an excellent app’, you still can’t re-read a book, which for me has always been kind of problem.
So, there was my missing idea !
But before putting my brain into this, knowing nothing about Coda (what could be done and how), I checked the community and found this topic :
Which helped me to get started !
Few weeks later (and a tremendous amount of knowledge more), mixing this simple base with the “automated” functionalities of the app’ I used before, I now have another " app’ " where I can track the readings of my books and comics and just enjoy them ! (In my personal doc, the tracker differentiates “Comics” from “Books” and I read the comics in number of issue(s) instead of pages )
Plus, it allows re-readings too !
So, I thought it might be useful to someone else
I tried to explain how it works in the doc as clearly as I could (which is not easy and that’s why it’s a bit long ).
Don’t hesitate : Try it, Test it, explore it, it’s there for that
Thanks for reading and helping me building this !
