What is EPUBGen?

EPUBGen is a Java library that demonstrates EPUB generation from a variety of document formats, and which may be a useful starting point or reference code for other EPUB generation needs. That is to say, it's an effort to promote the development of a variety of tools and workflows.

EPUBGen has both a set of back-end code generation modules and front end format importer modules. The back-end modules generate EPUB and illustrate more advanced functionality, including font subset embedding with obfuscation. The front-end modules are experimental and incomplete at this time. There are sample Java applications are provided that illustrate the conversion of respective file types (rt2epub, word2epub, fb2epub). There's a build script and available jar file for the 'rtf2epub' project.

This project is being provided to the development community to build on, and so contribution and derivative works, within the scope of the BSD license are invited.
