Do you know who Mani is, or what he does? He's a pediatric heart surgeon. Ever known a sick child, Tombo? Mani, and others like him, are the answer to the prayers of that child and his or her parents. I've read his book. It's going to heal the hearts of a lot of adults in a great deal of pain. He tried to pass on a lesson he learned the hard way.
He made a minor mistake, and got a minor slap for it. He took it to heart because he cares about people and doesn't want to do things that will hurt or annoy them. And he tried to help others to avoid the same problem. That's the person you called a spammer. Ah yes. Preferred by anonymous and malicious No questions asked.
You really should get on a Clue supplement, Tombo. You're way under the recommended daily allowance.
First, SpamCop is a reporting tool. Nothing else. A seriously broken one, that allows silly people to try and make issues over often faked complaints, without having to attach their names to them.
Contrary to your naive beliefs, SpamCop doesn't shut down anything. Some providers treat the complaints the same way they would any other.
Some ignore them as a matter of policy. The next easiest is EPUB. That is also easy to create and, depending on your programming language, there are plenty of libraries to help you do this. So moving on… Mobi.
Actually, if you use this strategy, you get all the other Calibre output formats for free, including groan. Honestly, go give those Calibre guys all your love, some dev time, and a bit of cash.
They are making our world a whole lot easier. Ok… the holy grail… people still like paper books, and paper books are printed from PDF. Paper these days is a post-digital artifact. So first you need that awkward sounding book-formatted PDF.
Here there are an array of options and then there is this very exciting world that can open to you if you are willing to live a little on the bleeding edge…. That includes Press Books and Wikipedia. Wikipedia is re-tooling their entire book-formatted-PDF conversion process to be based on LaTeX and that is an awesome decision. If it is closed source then I think it needs to be stated that the project is partially Open Source. I wish that more people would try, like the Wikimedia Foundation is trying, to break that cycle.
The browser as renderer There is one huge Open Source hero in this game. Jacob Truelson.
This is the right way to do it and there is even more goodness to pile on, as this also means that your rendering environment is standards-based and open source… Awesome. This is the future. And the future is actually even brighter for this approach than I have stated. I tested this a long time ago and I am itching to get my teeth into designing content production tools to do this. So many things to do.
That gets the principle across nicely. I think they are actually building a proprietary browser to be used solely as a rendering engine. It just sounds like a really bad idea to me. Why not drop that idea and contribute to an actual open source browser and use that. And those projects that use Prince, why not contribute to an effort to create browser-based renderers for the book world? This brings us to another part of the browser-as-renderer story, but first I think two other projects need calling out for thanks.
Reportlab for a long time was one of the only command line book-formatted-PDF rendering solutions. It was proprietary but had a community license. The bleeding edge So, to the bleeding edge. However CSS Regions are supported in Safari, and in some older versions of Chrome and Chromium which you can still find online if you snoop around.
Additionally, Adobe has done some awesome work in this area they were behind the original implementation of CSS Regions in WebKit — the browser engine that used to be behind Chrome and which is still used by Safari. It was obviously the solution for pagination on the web, and once you can paginate in the browser, you can convert those web pages to PDF pages for printing. This was the step needed for a really flexible browser-based book-formatted-PDF rendering solution.
Then we print it out to PDF and send it… Adobe is on to this stuff. Which seems to be why they are putting so much effort into CSS Regions.
Im not a terribly big fan of InDesign and proprietary Adobe strategies and products, but credit where credit is due. In late , book. It works pretty well and I have used it to produce 40 or 50 books, maybe more. The Fiduswriter team has since forked the code to pagination.
CSS Regions is the way to go. It means you can see the book in the browser and then print to PDF and get the exact same results. It needs some CSS wizardry to get it right, but when you get it right, it just works.
Additionally, you can compile a browser in a headless state and run it on the command line if you want to render the book on the backend. Wrapping it all up There is one part of this story left to be told.
If you are going to go down this path, I thoroughly recommend you create an architecture that will manage all these conversion processes and which is relatively agnostic to what is coming in and going out. For Booktype, Douglas Bagnall and Luka Frelih built the original Objavi, which is a Python based standalone system that accepts a specially formatted zip file booki.
It manages this by an API, and it serves Booktype pretty well.
