Inside Epub presents: opubWriter, an online wysiwyg epub editor

with 2 comments

If you’ve been following my Inside Epub blog, you’ll know that I’m developing an online, wysiwyg epub editor. This project is now at a point where I’m only slightly embarrassed to release it. I suppose it should be called a beta release, version 0.001, on account of the number of features it still needs.

However, it’s available for you to look at here: opubWriter.

I don’t especially like the name opubWriter. It does emphasise the fact that it outputs Open Publications in epub format. The names I might have preferred – epubWriter, epubAuthor, epubCreator – all these domains have already been taken along with many more beginning with ‘epub’ – so it is.

If you’re someone who heeds the advice: ‘never use software before release 3’, then it may not be for you, but if you’re happy to try out something different, please give it a go. There’s a contact form on the site, so I hope you will report to me any problems you have and any suggestions for enhancement.

  1. Are you going to publish the source code of your C# library that you created to read and edit ePUB documents?

  2. prio732,

    No, I’m not going to publish the source code. I’m too small to operate the ‘free as a business model’ approach suggested by Jeff Jarvis.
