Finally put some of my index on inventaire.io/inventory/bg

Since the import feature does not automatically merge books, it looks like I got nearly every book three times.

Currently my inventory is only visible for friends. I'm not sure if I should make it public.

Any ideas?

@bg did you re-import the same dataset several times? the tool allows to have several instances of the same book edition, as some user needed it, but it is at the cost of this kind of situation :/ we don't yet offer a tool to easily fix that from the user side, but if you want, I could delete all the duplicates from the back-end

That would be great. 😃

> did you re-import the same dataset several times?

yes, once to change the visibility of the books to 'friends' and once because I extended it.

I'm still using the book-catalogue app, but since it got amazon tracking it's not an option for the future.

I still want to play around with the API, but I probably won't get to it in the next days.

@bg so I went on to remove all the duplicates.

Note that to change the visibility of many items at once, you can go on your inventory, select "Display Mode > Table" (button on the top right of the list on large screens), then select manually the items to change or use the "Select all" button, and click "Edit selection".

For the API, see the API documentation api.inventaire.io (everything isn't perfectly up-to-date unfortunately, feel welcome to ask if you're blocked)
