If anyone still takes a gander at this thread, having some issues running the Kindlestrip tool on OSX10.6.6; a simple drag & drop of a .mobi file onto the AppleScript file doesn't actually cause anything to occur...taking a closer look, I'm wondering if the inherent Python files on my Mac are outdated to run kindlestrip properly (I had no issue at whatsoever using your ePub zip/unzip scripts, but I could be misled in that they don't use the Python language?). My version:
Python 2.6.1 (r261:67515, Jun 24 2010, 21:47:49)
Noticed that there is a more current build of 3.2, wondering if maybe this could be the issue? I'm sure also there is a way to run from Terminal, but I am certainly not at that level of familiarity with Python to do so....thanks in advance if anyone spots this...
