RFE: Generate .mobi files
Last modified: 2017-01-09 05:25:09 EST
Description of problem: Publican should create .mobi files so that users of Kindle devices can utilize Publican-generated goodness.
Calibre can convert from epub to mobi so perhaps we can use this functionality?
I like this idea, but this is something that would need to get added upstream, so I'm moving it there.
MobiPerl would probably be a better solution for us than Calibre: https://dev.mobileread.com/trac/mobiperl
Mobipler link wend dead -- now outlink seems to be:
which in turn has an archive:
and an optimistic statement up a level that a dead URL was at one point live
which seems to have moved into a wiki at:
The supported formats seem to be:
html2mobi - Convert HTML file to a MobiPocket file.
opf2mobi - Convert an opf file structure to a MobiPocket file.
lit2mobi - Convert a lit file to a MobiPocket file.
mobi2html - Explode a DRM free MobiPocket file.
mobi2mobi - Manipulate meta data for a MobiPocket file.
There are plenty of tools to convert epubs to mobi, so I don;t think there is any need for publican to have this feature. Anyone using such a tool that has problems consuming publican generated epubs can open a bug and we'll try and make them play happily together.
