Book Making Tools


Welcome to free and open source book making tools for web. This section is meant for slightly advanced users (writers) who wish to publish their own book, comics or magazine or to learn how Superbooks work. Book making, as emphasized earlier, is slightly different from self-publishing, in that you'll need some level of familiarity with HTML, CSS and (optionally) JavaScript to be able to roll out on your own. Worry not, it's easy, and we're available for help at every step of the way!

To start, there are following two paths to take to pick up Superbook publishing:

  1. Use the in-browser book editor (code playground) on https://bubblin.io, or use
  2. Bookiza Abelone — an open source "book reification" framework.

Method 1: In-browser playground

The in-browser book editor is a very simple code playground (a codemirror instance) that accepts three things: HTML, CSS & JavaScript for each page of the book. It works just like Codepen or JSbin with instant rendering, but only for a page in the book–if you know what this means?

If not and if you're an absolute beginner with no knowledge of how HTML, CSS and JS work, we recommend you to start on this tutorial to get your feet wet.

Note, this method will publish only on Bubblin.

Method 2: Using Bookiza Abelone

The second option, using Bookiza, is much more technical (low level) and involved book writing strategy. Bookiza can be used to create, edit, publish, update and republish Superbooks from the comfort of your local machine (terminal).

Bookiza let's you publish anywhere, i.e. on Bubblin or on your own website.

QUOTE

Bookiza is a lightweight book reification framework that cuts down your book-writing time by half… It is adapted directly from modern developer toolchain (using git, markdown, haml etc.) in such a way that it's easy to collaborate with anyone who can help turn your book into a finished product.
