Next format for calibre to generate?

I'm feeling on a bit of format-generation spree at the moment. Now that calibre has LIT-generation support, which format should I add next? No promises on a timeline, though .

I really should learn to "preview" before posting. Is there any way for me to correct that typo in poll option #1?

Oh wow, please do Mobi!!

I have both a Sony 505 and a Kindle. It would be so wonderful to need just one software package to manage the libraries for both of them.

I've already donated once but I'd send more bucks for that one!

Ditto!

MOBI ebooks can easily be converted to .imp, but a direct .imp output would be welcomed. I think Kovidgoyal and ashkulz had something in mind a while ago using something akin to 'impbuild'. I have since gotten .imp generation to work under linux via ActiveState Perl and the OLE/COM interface and I believe that .imp generation is also possible under MacOS X.

I voted for MobiPocket because MobiPocket needs some competition in ePub to MOBI conversion. This does not seem to be a priority for MobiPocket, which in any case has very long periods between new software releases. I am particularly looking for ePub TOC conversion to MOBI TOC. Getting a cover image may also require rendering the 1st page of the ePub into a fixed image size. Both of these issues already exist for ePub to LIT by the way.

By "MOBI TOC" do you mean mean some sort of metadata Mobipocket viewers use to present a TOC separate from the book content, or do you mean an in-line, in-content TOC?

Oi. I was planning to do SVG rasterization, but not full-markup-rasterization. However, now that you mention it, calibre does already include WebKit...

I mean convert toc.ncx into something that the toc guide item can use. See Defining guide items for pre-defined items (other.ms-coverimage is the cover, for example), this is from the Creator documentation, so it is documenting the .opf file that eventually gets translated to the MOBI. The TOC guide item can point to a in-line, in-content TOC - but in "modern" MOBIs it is typically not in-lined in the reading stream but only accessible via the "Go to" menu item. If it isn't in-lined, it is typically put at the end of the content stream of the actual ebook by the MOBI builder program. Note that native ePubs typically won't have in-content TOCs, so if the toc.ncx isn't converted there wil be no TOC at all.

Ah! Ok -- an *out*-of-line, *in*-content TOC, got it. You know, I hadn't considered that -- I was worried about generating an in-content TOC in case one was already present and ending up with two TOC's, but if there's no /guide/reference[@type="toc"] it should be perfectly "safe" to add a /spine/itemref with @linear="no". Cool.

calibre already does cover extraction via full rasterization of EPUBs (see epub-meta) or just add an EPUB to the GUI
