Lightbulb ePub Validator

I created a PHP webapp that uses the java file epubcheck-3.0.1.jar to validate ePubs.

Why did I create this?
  • I hate command line tools
  • Uploading a file every time for validation takes time since the process repeats itself several times per ePub.
  • The pagina-epubchecker doesn't work on my PC for some reason.
  • Experience :P

I offer this tool free for anyone to use, I also welcome any feedback you might have and bug report.

Unfortunately my hosting is blocking the exec command so the app basically does not have permissions to write and delete files, it's part of keeping your material safe and protected.
You can use a local xampp server or if you have a domain where you can allow exec command I would be happy if you could host it there.

To download this tool: http://odedta.com/projects/epubcheck/epubcheck.zip

Java is something avoided by a number of people as being the number one vector for malware, so if it goes slowly, that might be why. I put it on only one computer in my shop for a particular program, but try to avoid it and particularly avoid connecting it up to a browser.

I don't see how that applies here... epubcheck is trusted and, well, I trust myself not infecting my own PC with malware, besides, it's all open-source...

I have been using Java for years now and I don't have any malware. Thanks for the input anyway.

Anyone feel like hosting this app? my hosting services does not allow the use of Java on shared environments.

Why not just use the validator on the IDPF? That is essentially also epubcheck? That is online and works fine.

The output is more detailed in my version in some cases.

Also, you can validate individual files like ncx, opf etc

You can simply make a good wiki page on our wiki that describes the product features and how to use it etc and then attach the file. (so long as the file isn't huge)
