Wsexport now outputs PDF at https://tools.wmflabs.org/wsexport/tool/book.php
+ we need you
to test ePub 3 output as it will be used by default in a few weeks.
Marc-Andre Peltier and I have added to wsexport the capacity to export PDF, MOBI, TXT and
RTF during the Lyon hackathon. This new feature uses Calibre ebook converter system .
We created also a new instance of wsexport on Wikimedia Tool Labs:
to test these new formats.
We plan to do two big changes in the next few weeks:
1. Remove wsexport.wmflabs.org
and redirect it to tools.wmflabs.org/wsexport
shouldn't disrupt anything as we will take care of keeping URLs valid.
2. Move the default format from ePub 2 to ePub 3. ePub 3, between other things, allows to
use HTML 5 and, so, to add new nice features to eBooks. As ePub 3 should be
retrocompatible with ePub 2 this change should not disallow old eReaders to read the
ePubs. But, in order to ensure that this statement is true, could you all try to read
ePubs 3 created by wsexport on your old reading devices and report bugs that may remain?
