[Conversion Input] KePub Input

THIS PLUGIN IS BEING INTERMITTENTLY DEVELOPED! FEATURE REQUESTS AND BUG REPORTS MAY TAKE A FEW DAYS TO BE REPLIED TO.

This plugin allows converting KePub files to ePub by removing the special KePub markup. All the credit for actually creating this goes to davidfor, he wrote the code, I'm just including it in the codebase for the other KePub plugins.

You are encouraged to install this plugin as well, to ensure KePub metadata is correctly processed:
Usage

To use this plugin after installing:
  • Select the book(s) you want to convert.
  • Select the EPUB output format
  • Choose your settings
  • Convert the books

Special Notes
  • This plugin requires calibre 0.1.0 or later.
  • Conversion defaults can be set in Preferences -> Output

Installation Directions

Open Preferences -> Plugins -> Get new plugins and install the 'KePub Input' plugin. You may also download the attached zip file and install the plugin manually, then restart calibre as described in the Introduction to Plugins thread.

Known Issues

Not everything works perfectly all the time. Here are some of the issues I know about that are likely to stick around for a while.

Spoiler:
Nothing for now!


Contributing

Decided you want to contribute to the development of this plugin? Awesome! If you want to contribute to the development of this plugin, you have many options:
[*]Contribute code, whether for existing bug reports, for new bugs that you found, or for new features that you really want to see implemented. To contribute code, you may fork the repository and send a GitHub pull request, or you may send me a PM here with a git patch file. A tutorial on creating a git patch can be found at http://ariejan.net/2009/10/26/how-to...atch-with-git/
[*]Submit bug reports on Launchpad. Launchpad bug reports are my to-do list for this plugin; any requests anywhere else are likely to get missed and forgotten. Although I'm happy to discuss the plugin here, I may still ask you to create a bug report; this is so I actually remember to investigate your request!
[*]Test pre-released code from GitHub. Between releases, new code is committed to the GitHub repository and may be installed using directions provided in the README file. Based on your testing, you may submit bug reports, provide feedback, think of new feature requests, or just generally enjoy early access (and not necessarily stable code!) to upcoming versions of the plugin.
[*]Translate the plugin on the plugin's Launchpad Translations page.
[/LIST]
Submitting Bugs

Found an issue? Have a new feature request? Great, I want to hear from you! Go to the Launchpad issue tracker and submit a new bug report or click the "This bug affects me" link on an existing bug report. To save us all time, please make sure to include the following details:
  • What version of calibre are you running? If this is not the latest version, you will likely be asked to upgrade and confirm that the bug still exists.
  • What version of the plugin are you using? If this is not the latest version, you will likely be asked to upgrade and confirm that the bug still exists.
  • Are you able to send me a book that demonstrates the problem? Please be aware of the directions provided when submitting a new bug which detail how to include a book and what bug options to set.
  • The calibre debug log showing the issue, where possible
    • To get the calibre debug log, select Preferences -> Restart in debug mode and reproduce the issue. The calibre debug log will be displayed shortly after closing calibre.

Although I'm generally perfectly happy to discuss possible issues here, any issues sent to me through any means other than the Launchpad bug tracker (including email, PM, etc.) may be silently ignored. This is not because I don't care! It's because I have a terrible memory, the Launchpad issue tracker is my "to-do list" for this plugin, and there's been instances where I've seen a post or PM here and promptly forgotten all about it until I happened to stumble across the post again later. If you aren't sure if you have an issue, feel free to post here and we can work together to decide if you need to make a new Launchpad issue or not. If you are sure you have an issue, or if you have an error or exception from calibre, post a new issue. It isn't necessary to post here when you make a new issue, I get notified of all new bugs and I check the list regularly. The worst that could possibly happen on Launchpad is the same that could happen here: I'll tell you that it's not a bug and you'll have the opportunity to convince me otherwise!

README file

The current version is always here on GitHub.

Nice!

Does this mean that it's now safe to use kePub as a base storage format?

I personally won't use KePub as the base storage format unless it's a KePub straight from Kobo. The conversion plugin is still not producing KePub files the same as Kobo's. I'm still trying to get a couple of recent releases from Kobo to address that, but I'm not interested in paying more money for a book than I think it's worth and I'm not buying a book I don't want to read anyway, so it's taking a while. Kobo is pretty consistently more expensive for any book I actually want than Amazon, and not a single book I want has ever been valid for coupons, and Kobo has been pretty rude to me in the past.

If you happen to have some KePubs purchased recently from Kobo and you want to send them my way, I'm looking for books new to Kobo since June 2015, English language only (so I can read and know what I'm looking at and what I'm expecting). I need the books to be purchased directly from Kobo's site, downloaded by the Kobo reader directly to the reader (that seems to be the only way to get the actual KePub files) and copied from there. I'm also trying to sort out some things around the rights.xml file, so I need both the encrypted KePub file directly from the reader and the decrypted KePub file. I can't tell you how to decrypt the file, but I've heard rumour that an Apprintice named Alf knows everything you need to know about that

Like I said, you can't download KePubs from the Kobo site. You've got to buy the book then let the reader download it.

New version uploaded, fixes issues with file names not being handled correctly. Calibre should offer it soon.

New version posted, affecting the detection of cover images in some cases. Look for an update notice from calibre in the next hour or so.
