One last dumb question about --replace. Say I want to replace every instance of 'monospace' in the css with something like '"Courier Prime", monospace' instead (to work around the monospace font issue in kepubs). I know the argument is a string, but how do I escape the " characters in the string? Should I be using \ characters? Or something else?

Is this correct?

Code:
--replace "monospace|\"Courier Prime\", monospace"
I noticed that kepubify ate the " characters in my previous question (i.e. "kern" and "liga" became kern and liga in the output) so how do I preserve the " characters?

Yes, that's correct, but note that replace only replaces inside the documents, not any external stylesheets.

But, the embedded CSS will never be large enough to do that. And, you aren't meant to edit the generated KEPUBs in general.

I downloaded the windows.exe, unblocked it, made sure windowsdefender isnt messing it. But when I run the exe, it just auto closes in a split second.

You need to either run it from the command line or drag-drop your epub files onto it.

What´s the diference between a file converted with "kepubify" and another one that just has been manually renamed to xxx.kepub.epub?

There are a lot of <span class="koboSpan" id="kobo.x.x">. What are they for?

Thank you very much for your converter.

Well, one is an ePub, the other is a Kobo ePub.

If you don't know/get the difference, you probably don't need this?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I believe that without the kobospans a xxx.kepub.epub book
- won't keep track of where you're up to in the book
- won't let you highlight/annotate
- won't let you use the dictionaries

How do I customize the options if I am using Kepubify on Windows?

(Specifically I just want to add
Code:
--calibre
to make files Calibre compatible)

You can either use it from the command line, or make a batch file like:

Code:
@cd %~dp0
@kepubify*.exe --calibre %*

kepubify v3.1.0

I've released kepubify 3.1.0.

This release adds:
  • seriesmeta: Support for updating the Series ID column (for the Series tab in 4.20.14601).
  • kepubify: A new --copy option which allows copying a specified file extension as-is (e.g. kepubify --output /path/to/kobo/kepubify --update --copy .pdf /path/to/books/).
In addition, an issue with kepubify where too many error messages may be shown if 1 or more errors have occurred has been fixed.

Does the new seriesmeta feature work for ePub already side loaded? If so, what is the command to do this? Thanks.

Yes. Just run seriesmeta the same way as you would for anything else.

I have a couple of epub files that refuse to convert using kepubify. The problem seems to be that they contain too many files. Is this a known problem?

Example output:

❯*kepubify -i -v --smarten-punctuation .
Kepubify 3.0.0

[ 1/ 1] Converting Mastering PostgreSQL 9.6 - Hans-Jurgen Schonig.epub
