Alternatives to Writer2epub
#1  mcdummy 06-16-2016, 08:20 AM
Since there hasn't been much progress in the last months and from time to time some I have to export formats not supported by writer2epub, I thought it might be meaningful to collect alternatives to this plugin. So far I'm aware of

- odt-import in calibre,
- writer2latex (http://writer2latex.sourceforge.net/), which provides an export-to-epub function and requires java,
- eLAIX (http://extensions.libreoffice.org/extension-center/elaix/releases/4.1), which seems to have some problems with new versions of libreoffice, and
- amanuensis (http://amanuensis.pagesperso-orange.fr/).

Regards,

Werner

Hi

ODTImport is a new Sigil plugin making use of writer2xhtml (Java). It can output to EPUB2 and EPUB3 formats.

For EPUB or AZW I've found saving in DOCX and importing that into the calibre editor can yield better results (marginal to quite a bit) than converting ODT. And if there are any glitches KG usually fixes them quick smart, same day if you run calibre from source, otherwise it'll be in next release, which is rarely more than a fortnight away.

'OSX iWork Pages' can export to Epub. Not 'amazing' but quick and hastle free.

The Calligra Office Suite can export to epub. There is also an application dedicated to writing books, Author. Don't know about the quality of the epubs, but the software is open source and part of the KDE project.
