Kerstin Gier ,Anthea Bell Publisher: Square Fish Pages: Paperback Brand: Publication Date: Book Details Author: A surprising number of successful authors already use Ruby to drive their e-publishing toolchains.
This post looks at a two of these systems: Kitabu and Bookshop. He gives a more detailed explanation of how he uses Kitabu on his blog than I will go into here.
Installing Kitabu Installing Kitabu is slightly complicated, due to its dependency via the eeepub gem on RubyZip. RubyZip's interface changed in version 1. To install Kitabu: gem install rubyzip -v 0. Once installed Kitabu has some nice features. Not installed.
KindleGen: Converts ePub e-books into. If installed, replaces CodeRay. If your goal is to produce print-ready PDFs then investing in Prince shouldn't be too onerous. It would be nice if Kitabu could default to an open-source PDF generator e. Prawn in the absence of Prince, but pretty much all PDF generating gems have their own interfaces and it'd be a lot of work to maintain support for both. It's also possible to nest sections within chapters.
There are various config files available to tweak, but that's beyond the scope of this post. Kitabu's implementation of syntax highlighting is quite novel. If you are working on a technical book this would probably prove handy, in that you can keep all your source code examples separate from the main text.
Another nice feature is kitabu stats. Running this command against the Tachypomp contents ported to Kitabu produced the following report: Chapters: 8 Words: Images: 0 Links: 2 Footnotes: 0 Code blocks: 0 If you're wanting to keep tabs on your progress, I can see this being a handy feature. Kitabu uses Sass under the hood to manage CSS. This is a must, given ePub 2's limited support for CSS.
Kitabu has some built-in commands for generating content. It may very well be possible to generate other common content using erb. I'm not sure if I did something wrong, but running Tachypomp through Kitabu generated an ePub document with a garbled front page.
Looking through the unzipped ePub file doesn't reveal anything, so I suspect this is an issue with Calibre not rendering. The generated HTML ends up being in a single page. While useful for debugging, I wouldn't want people to have to download an entire novel in one hit.
Not sure if there's any way to change Kitabu's behaviour, but it doesn't seem likely. There's also no built-in mechanism for deploy HTML to a server, though writing a simple rake task wouldn't be too difficult. Though I didn't install Prince or.
Summary The framework isn't as extensible as either nanoc or Jekyll, but it's a purpose-built tool that does one thing well. Kitabu would be ideal as the main components of a publishing pipeline targeting off-line reading system like the Kindle or PDFs. The inflexibility in managing HTML content, and the lack of nanoc-style filters to refine the generation of content, would drive me away from adopting Kitabu, but it's a nice and simple pipeline for producing e-books out of the box without having to write any custom code.
Compared to nanoc, which requires a reasonable amount of configuration e.
In particular I like the kitabu stats command and would probably consider writing something similar as an extension to nanoc. As for Jesse Storimer, Pat does a much better job than I going through the ins and outs of using Bookshop.
I will, however, endeavour to give it my best shot.
