This is the README file for rebookmaker.

rebookmaker - an open source (MIT-licensed) re-implementation of Marcelo Lira’s ( @setanta ) ebookmaker.
EPUB is a popular and open file format standard for electronic books (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EPUB for more information about it). What rebookmaker (= “re-ebook-maker”) does is compile a definition of the book inside a JSON file along with some input HTML and image files into an .epub.
pip3 install rebookmaker
Since the name “ebookmaker” was taken on pypi and it is common courtesy to change the name, I picked “rebookmaker” since it was available on pypi and as a pun on reboots in fiction <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reboot_%28fiction%29> because it was a rewrite.
The issue where I requested an explicit licensing of the original project is here: https://github.com/setanta/ebookmaker/issues/8 but I have yet to receive a reply.
You can find some examples for valid input by perusing the code in https://github.com/shlomif/screenplays-common and https://github.com/shlomif/shlomi-fish-homepage . Preparing some less generic examples is on my TODO list.
This project aims for compatibility with setanta’s project, but some functionality may be still missing and I also added some new one.
http://docbook.sourceforge.net/release/xsl/current/epub/README - DocBook 5 can be converted to EPUB.
https://github.com/shlomif/cookiecutter–shlomif-latemp-sites - contains some custom XSLT stylesheets for reproducible builds and other features.
https://pypi.org/project/ebookmaker/ - by Project Gutenberg: accepts a different input.
