Ebook library which can handle EPUB2/EPUB3 and Kindle format

Project Description
About EbookLib
==============

EbookLib is a Python library for managing EPUB2/EPUB3 and Kindle files. It's capable of reading and writing EPUB files programmatically (Kindle support is under development).

The API is designed to be as simple as possible, while at the same time making complex things possible too. It has support for covers, table of contents, spine, guide, metadata and etc.

EbookLib is used in [Booktype](https://github.com/sourcefabric/Booktype/) from Sourcefabric, as well as [sprits-it!](https://github.com/the-happy-hippo/sprits-it), [fanfiction2ebook](https://github.com/ltouroumov/fanfiction2ebook), [viserlalune](https://github.com/vjousse/viserlalune) and [Telemeta](https://github.com/Parisson/Telemeta).

Packages of EbookLib for GNU/Linux are available in [Debian](https://packages.debian.org/python-ebooklib) and [Ubuntu](http://packages.ubuntu.com/python-ebooklib).

Sphinx documentation is generated from the templates in the docs/ directory and made available at http://ebooklib.readthedocs.io
