Generates a EPUB/MOBI/PDF for the Google SRE Book.

Original sources are downloaded from https://landing.google.com/sre/


Docker (Preferred)


  • Docker
$ docker run --rm --volume "$(pwd):/output" captn3m0/google-sre-ebook:latest
  • You should see the final EPUB/MOBI/PDF files in the output directory after the above runs.
  • The file may be owned by the root user.

NOTE: You'll have to allow docker access to a directory that's local to your system. The safest way to do this is as follows:

$ mkdir /tmp/sreoutput
$ chcon -Rt svirt_sandbox_file_t /tmp/sreoutput
$ docker run --rm --volume "/tmp/sreoutput:/output" captn3m0/google-sre-ebook:latest

The build for the above Docker image can be audited at https://cloud.docker.com/swarm/captn3m0/repository/docker/captn3m0/google-sre-ebook/builds.


Review and run the bootstrap.sh script to generate the EPUB, MOBI, and PDF files


  • Ruby
  • gem install bundler

Known Issues

  • Inline references are not handled in the best possible way
  • metadata.xml is not complete. There are just too many authors
  • Foreword/Preface is not part of the index
