Converts OpenAccess Journal articles to ePub
OpenAccess_EPUB is a program for converting OpenAccess Academic Journal articles into the ePub format.
OpenAccess_EPUB’s development is focusing primarily on PLoS at the moment, but is being designed with extensibility for additional publishers in mind.
Documentation for the project can be found at [Read the Docs](https://openaccess_epub.readthedocs.org/en/latest/)
To get started with OpenAccess_EPUB, one should download the source code and then navigate to the top-level directory in the source code. Then install the program with Python3 (the program’s officially supported Python version). The command shown below may or may not work verbatim, replace “python3” with the appropriate link to the Python3 executable.
For Linux users:
sudo python3 setup.py install
For Mac and Windows, enter:
python3 setup.py install
Windows systems may require additional configuration (see the wiki).
The next step is to execute OpenAccess_EPUB’s configuration script. This will allow one to define some helpful default behavior.
Using the configuration script with the “-d” flag will automatically generate the system configuration file with all default values. It should inform you of where the config file is located for inspection.
Now you are prepared to use OpenAccess_EPUB’s main script “oaepub”. The following command would instruct OpenAccess_EPUB to convert the article.xml file into an ePub file.
oaepub -i my/article.xml
Many more options are available as command line flags, and you can learn more about them by executing:
