Wonderful. Would you be willing to make the code available to be added to the KindleUnpack project as well?

Thanks,

Kevin

The KFX Input plugin is open source Python code and I have no objection to it being reused in other projects. I am providing the code as-is and I leave making use of it outside of the plugin as a task for others.

I am still testing and hope to have it ready for release sometime next week.


Some caveats:

The plugin is not just an unpacker. It generates EPUB content that will render similarly to the KFX book, but it won't be perfect. Because information is lost is the production of KFX the output of the plugin might not look much like the original input to kfxgen.

The code is fairly obtuse because I wrote it in a way that avoids including the KFX symbol table. I was concerned that doing that might be problematic legally.

Amazon continues to add new features to KFX so it is a moving target. The plugin will need updates to keep up with these changes, assuming that I can figure them out.
