View Full Version : epubcheck for Mac OS X

There's this great epubcheck tool over at http://code.google.com/p/epubcheck/
but it comes as a java application or for a web server. I wanted a drag&drop application for Mac OS X.

So I wrapped the java app in an AppleScript. Here it is. Just drag & drop ePub files onto the AppleScript, and the script will run epubcheck and report back on errors. If there are no errors, you'll also get a small dialog saying so.

I beleive it will work on Mac OS X 10.4 and later.

Feedback welcome.

[EDIT] Updated to use epubcheck 1.0.5

[EDIT] Updated to make the error dialog a bit wider, and to save an error report when there are errors. The error report will be in the same folder as the ePub and with the same name, but with '.txt' appended.

[EDIT] Updated to use epubcheck 1.1. I've left the 1.05 version here in case anyone still needs it.

[EDIT] Updated to use epubcheck 1.2. I've left the previous versions, even though I can't think why anyone would want to use them.

[EDIT] Updated to use epubcheck 3.0b5. Now has a pretty icon and also a translation into French. Thanks to Diegnum for the French translation. Any error in the French will be mine, as I adapted their text slightly. Please do report any errors in the dialogs. Further translations will be added if there is demand, and someone supplies me with the translated text!

[EDIT] Updated to use epubcheck 3.0RC1.

[EDIT] Updated to use epubcheck 3.0.

[EDIT] Updated to use epubcheck 3.0.1. Now a working version of 3.0.1!

Thanks! I was usually already in Terminal.app after zipping up a file, so typing in another command to fire up epubcheck wasn't a problem. But this just makes everything that much easier! And it seems to work fine on 10.4.11.

What is the magic incantation required in terminal to zip up a folder of files into the correct zip format?

None of my GUI zip utilities will do it right.

Perhaps I could make an AppleScript that you could just a folder on and it would do the zipping. I much prefer small drag&drop apps to remembering and typing terminal commands.

I've been thinking about simplifying this in some way, but if you want to make a drag'n'drop script it'll be that much easier on me. :)

The terminal commands to do it are:
zip -X0 bookname.epub mimetype
zip -rX9 bookname.epub * -x mimetype
The first line makes the zip file (with epub extension) with only the mimetype and no compression (the -0 switch). The second line recursively goes through the directory (-r) and adds everything else (the *) to the zip file at maximum compression (-9) while excluding the mimetype file (-x). The -X switch ignores any extra file attributes.

It's not a bad idea to precede the whole thing with this command to clear out the .DS_Store files first:
find . -name '*.DS_Store' -type f -delete
(I have that aliased to 'rmds' in my .profile for typing simplicity.)

I add the "-D" option too (do not create entries in the zip archive for directories), and remove the .epub file before zipping.

This seems to be what I am looking for. I appreciate the knowledge and the technical expertise that you all have acquired, but I am 'geek speak' illiterate. I have no idea what AppleScript is. Simply stated...I need to run a file through EpubCheck 1.0.5...I have a brand new iMac. When I click on your linc, pdurrant - it downloads but then it is just a file in a list of downloads. Anyone game enough to walk this infant through the rest of the process? Sorry to be so needy.

The file you download is a .zip (compressed) file. Double-click it and Mac OS X will expand it back to the original size. You now have an application*.

Drag & Drop your ePub onto the application, and it will check it, and display the results in a dialog.

HTH

*The application is written in AppleScript. This is a neat way to get other programs to do things, and ties it up nicely into a simple application. In your Applications folder you probably have an AppleScript folder, inside which is the Script Editor application. You can use this to look at the script used in the epubcheck applescript program if you like. But there's no need unless you're interested.

"ePubChecker" is a free easy-to-use program that runs your EPUB file through "epubcheck". Just drag and drop your book file, and click "Check".

Faster than uploading to a web site and more private as you keep your book on your own computer. Runs on Mac OS X 10.4, 10.5, and 10.6.

See the screenshot:
http://www.rainwater-soft.com/epubchecker/

This app is built by my company, but uses the "epubcheck" v1.0.5 checking engine from Google/Adobe as required by Apple when submitting an iBook.

I use this method in terminal:

zip -X MyNewEbook.epub mimetype

zip -rg MyNewEbook.epub META-INF -x \*.DS_Store

zip -rg MyNewEbook.epub OEBPS -x \*.DS_Store

I got it from http://www.webvivant.com/zipping-epub-files.html.

Any advantages over my free Applescript?

Any advantages over my free Applescript?

The major problem I have with it is that the error window is way to narrow.

If you can widen the error window so that each error fits on one line, then I will go back to using it.

Feedback! Thank you!

I'm not sure if I can widen the error window, but I could get it to save the error messages in a text file next to the original folder if there are any warnings or errors.

I'll take a look and see what can be done. It hasn't bothered me because I'm used to the kinds of errors I generate when editing ePubs, but I can see that it's a problem for someone starting out, which is just the kind of person the script is supposed to be helping.

No problems, it was just annoying to have to open yet other program (text edit) to read what the messages were.

I was using yours and just leaving it there as a checklist i.e fix the first few then run it again, rinse and repeat... but because the window was so narrow, I ended up using the threepress upload.

Unfortunately, I'd need to change from a simple AppleScript to something done with AppleScript Studio, which I don't have time to do. I can make the dialog a little wider by making the button bigger, but not resizable. I have added a feature that saves the error report in a text file. (Same folder as the ePub, with the ePub name with '.txt' added.)

The new version of the script will be uploaded in a minute of two.

I took the liberty of updating pdurrant's applescript to run the new epubcheck-3.0b4. I don't know how to make anything but the simplest applescript but updating pdurrant's didn't seem too hard - at least I think I did it right. I tried it out on both an epub that validated and one that didn't and it seems to work. Thanks pdurrant for the original script.

10-11-2012, 12:15 PM
I took the liberty to update to ePubCheck 3.0b5

I'm sorry as I had to translate to french and I don't have time to retranslate.

To translate all the messages :

1. Go to a Mac
2. Right click the app --> Show contents
3. Search the file in Contents/Ressources/Scripts/main.scpt
4. Double click and it will open with Apple Script (pretty easy to read if you have some notions of any programming language - And french !!! But Google Tranlate is your "ami")

Hope it helps

10-13-2012, 05:19 PM
Thanks for the reminder, and thanks for uploading your version.

I have updated my epubcheck AppleScript wrapper to use the 3.0b5 javascript (see first post). I've also added a pretty icon, and I'm pretty sure I've included a French translation.

I may have mangled your French. If I have, let me know and I'll fix it.

If anyone fancies translating it into another language, just look at the Localizable.strings file in Contents/Resources/fr.lproj, and replace the french strings with the desired language. Upload the new file, telling me what language it is, and I'll add it in to the main application.

hey everyone,

I just found out about this awesome epubcheck droplet for mac and wanted to let you know that there's a similar tool available for free download at http://www.pagina-online.de/software/epub-checker/
Works on Mac OS X as well as on Windows and Linux. On Mac you can also use it as a droplet in your dock.
we just updated the tool to epubcheck 3.0.1 which was released last week.
pagina EPUB-Checker also provides englisch and french localization of the user interface - as well as german and spanish.

Go give it a try :)

@tofi86,
Thanks for sharing Pagina version, this works for me! BTW, this works better than running epubcheck 3.0.1 via Terminal on Mac. It provides a detail listing of errors and warnings, whereas Terminal can spit out gibberish sometimes.

Hi,

doesn't works (anymore) under Mavericks, starts and close immediately after choosing ePub :(

epubckeck 3.0b5 is not the latest version of epubcheck. Version 3.0.1 is the current version. You are running an old version and that might be the problem. In the first message of this thread is the latest version of the app that contains epubcheck 3.0.1. If that doesn't work, then please let pdurrant know that it is not working.

Moreover, here the Italian translation


Thanks for the Italian translation. As Job says, try the 3.0.1 version. Also check the permissions you've got set for running applications. I'm not sure how Mavericks handles an AppleScript running the epubcheck application, and a permission error may well be the problem.
