Oh, you're doing it wrong; you need to type in the name of your book after. So something like

Code:
kepubify.exe --inplace --calibre book.epub
if kepubify and your book are in the same folder. If the book is in a different folder, you'll have to type out the entire location of the book (ex. C:\path\to\book.epub).

geek1011 also answered your question in the version 3.0 thread. Just copy/paste what he wrote into a file named kepubify.bat and drag your book onto that instead if you don't want to type things out manually.

Since I seem to be doing these batch files for people quite a bit, I'm considering adding an option which saves the current options into a batch file. The other options would be to save it into a config file (but that might cause confusion when helping people) or to edit the binary itself (same issue, but it would also trigger some virus scanners).

Thank you, that worked perfectly. The only thing I'd like to add is if it could save the file in the same directory as the original epub, rather than where I have the bat file. Is that possible? I've spent half an hour trying a few variations of --output, but no success so far, and I'm sure you know the answer off the top of your head

Thank you rtianga, I figured I really was doing something wrong! I'm much more on the right track now!

kepubify v3.1.1

I've released kepubify 3.1.1.

This release mainly focuses on performance improvements and dependency updates.

Improvements:
  • Batch conversion is now 40-70% faster and makes full use of the CPU (see cbb9af0 for details).
  • Go has been updated to 1.14.
Bugfixes:
  • A bug where smartening punctuation could cause HTML entities to be double-escaped has been fixed.

Yes. It'll be needlessly more complex to parse (lots of useless spans), but it's still perfectly valid ePub.

I'm not *quite* sure why you'd want to do that, but, it'll work.

Thank you for your answer
Yes. A kepub adds a mass of spans with individual IDs around each sentence plus some extra divs and CSS. I haven't seen any of these have an effect on the displayed text but they are used by the Kobo ACCESS renderer for location when highlighting, etc.

Kobo uses two renderers, one is the Adobe RMSDK used for epubs and pdfs either with no DRM or using Adobe' ADEPT DRM), the other is based on the ACCESS epub3 renderer used for kepubs).

There is a bug in the KePubify.

The existing file has always contained invalid webkit CSS properties:
Code:
-webkit-hyphenate-after: 3;
-webkit-hyphenate-before: 3;
-webkit-hyphenate-lines: 2;
For kepubs those property names should be:
Code:
-webkit-hyphenate-limit-after: 3;
-webkit-hyphenate-limit-before: 3;
-webkit-hyphenate-limit-lines: 2;
I don't use the last one, -webkit-hyphenate-limit-lines, myself but the first 2 seem to respond OK when you change the values.
Yes this quote if from the KoboTouchExtended driver thread but KePubify uses the same incorrect code.

Happy to help.While you are at it, can you remove -webkit-hyphenate-limit-lines: 2; or make it an option to add it? One other thing, can you put the hyphenation code in the CSS instead of every HTML? Put it in the <body>. Thanks.

I use to add width="100%" in my cover html. After converting to kepub it works on Sigil but not on my reader (Libra H20)
Thanks.

Do you really want to artificially stretch the cover so it looks odd?
