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

Original sources are downloaded from


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
