Kindlestrip Python script and AppleScript wrapper

The problem with the script may be a Mavericks permissions problem. I think there's an option in the preferences to allow programs from 'anywhere' to run that needs to be set.

The script does run though, if I double-click it. It's only if I drag a mobi file over the icon that it runs but doesn't produce any output.

This is funny. I got the same failure as Peter with 1.36 on Snow Leopard, but I assumed it was because it would work only on later versions of OS X. I didn't report it, because I didn't figure anyone cared whether it worked on Snow Leopard. I figured I'd just use 1.35 till I update!

Hmm.... I'll see if I can get some time this weekend to take another look.

Apperantly Kindle Publishing Guidelines mentioned the option since 2011 in building dictionary chapter.

Anyway Doitsu biiig thaaaanks for the info.
Yes, indeed, I just tested the -dont_append_source parameter in KindleGen 1.2, and it works fine.

Is this still usable? If not, are there some alternatives or any dev interested on this?

It still works to the best of my knowledge.

But it includes full source, if anyone wants to tweak it.

The last time I tried it, I wound up taking it off my computer. If I recall correctly, the latest version did not run at all on the latest Mac OS, while the previous version produced a corrupted file. I didn't bother reporting it, because I understood there just weren't many other people needing it nowadays. (And since then, I haven't needed it myself.) It was certainly useful in its time, though, and I'm grateful for it.
