Convert DRP-formatted Barnes & Noble e-books to a portable format
undrp converts Barnes & Noble’s proprietary fixed-layout EPUB files (aka BNFixedFormat or DRP) to more generic formats such as PDF. The goal is to allow you to read these e-books in non-Barnes & Noble e-readers.
undrp requires Python 3.3 or later. You can install it via pip:
pip install undrp
You can run undrp like the UNIX cp command.
Convert a single file (explicit target filename):
undrp /path/to/somebook.epub somebook.pdf
Convert a single file (implicit target filename):
undrp /path/to/somebook.epub .
Convert multiple files:
undrp /path/to/*.epub .
Convert a single file, outputting to stdout:
undrp /path/to/somebook.epub -
undrp is still in its infancy, so there are quite a few limitations:
Can only handle EPUB files where all the pages are JPEG images.
Error reporting is terrible.
Cannot convert EPUB files with DRM. You will need to strip the DRM off first.
Can only output to PDF format.
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
