Recipe output conversion (mobi<->epub)

Hi everyone

I have sort of a scheduled script that triggers ebook-convert to run a set of recipes to create .mobi periodicals for me to download and read on my Kindle.

I've been thinking of using the same mechanism to generate epubs so that family members without Kindles can also grab a copy to read. My first instinct was to just convert the generated .mobi to .epub ebook-convert abc.mobi abc.epub so that there is no need to re-fetch everything from scratch.

However, I noticed that when .mobi periodicals are converted to .epub, they don't have the navbar compared to an epub generated directly from a recipe.

If I try to flip it around and run the recipe to create .epub and then convert to .mobi, the masthead image is lost, and the .mobi contains the navbar elements not needed on a Kindle.

Short of running the recipe twice (something that I wish to avoid), is there a way to get both formats without the tradeoffs described?
i.e.
- .epub with navbar
- .mobi with periodicals structure and masthead, without navbar

I apologise in advance if my question is silly since I have zero knowledge of the specifics of the epub/mobi formats.

No you have to run the recipe twice. Both outputs are specialised for their respective ecosystems.
