mORMot documentation on eBook

Just downloaded the current mORMot documentation mega-webpage, and converted it to MOBI format, to see if it was readable on a Kindle

To my surprise, Calibre did an excellent job, and all the internal links work on the ebook

The documentation, as an ebook, is very good; I'm going to read it all

Arnaud, thanks again for your awesome mORMot

Interesting!

Which tool did you use to convert to MOBI format?

The much excellent "Calibre", it's an open source piece of art, a do-it-all tool to handle eBooks, from library handling to eBook reader sync

https://calibre-ebook.com

I browsed to the documentation page, and just downloaded it as plain html. Then droped the file on Calibre
Right clic on it, chose "Covert book",  and then the first option (don't know the english caption, but it's not the bulk one)
There I just chose one thing: on "Page Configuration" I chose "Kindle" in both "Input profile" and "output profile". It was a random decision; don't know if it's needed at all
And "OK"

There is a load of stuff you can customize, but I didn't use it

@Javierus do you have a link to the .mobi or .epub version of the docs?

I'm sorry, but I can't publish it: it is ab's intellectual property

Re: mORMot documentation on eBook

The documentation is GPL so you can publish it as soon as it is still under GPL license.

Here is a downloaded link:
http://betas.cyber.es/Software_Architec … uchez.epub

The output is very readable, but has troubles with (some) images, and the links external to the main html (all links to technical / source code pages).
I will see what I can do at SynProject side.
