How to run
mkdir out docker run --volume `pwd`/out:/src/out captn3m0/ickabog-ebook
If you'd like to generate for a different language, use the following:
mkdir out # Italiano docker run --env LC="it" --volume `pwd`/out:/src/out captn3m0/ickabog-ebook # English (US) docker run --env LC="en-us" --volume `pwd`/out:/src/out captn3m0/ickabog-ebook # España docker run --env LC="es" --volume `pwd`/out:/src/out captn3m0/ickabog-ebook # Français docker run --env LC="fr" --volume `pwd`/out:/src/out captn3m0/ickabog-ebook # Deutsch docker run --env LC="de" --volume `pwd`/out:/src/out captn3m0/ickabog-ebook # Português brasileiro docker run --env LC="pt" --volume `pwd`/out:/src/out captn3m0/ickabog-ebook
For generating ebooks for a different language, run the script with a LC parameter
Various values for LC are:
it, en-us, es, fr, de, pt. If you don't pass a value, the default (en-GB) is used.
You should have
ickabog.pdf in the
out directory after the script finishes.
- If you have ConTeXt installed, you will also get a
out/ickabog-large.pdffile with large fonts to be kid-friendly.
- If you have
qpdfinstalled, the PDF files will have cover pages
- If you have
out/ickabog.mobifile will also be generated. Preference is given to
The PDF is optimized for few pages of printing, so has a small font size by default. If you'd like a kid-friendly version, install context to get
ickabog-large.pdf file. ~ConTeXt comes preinstalled in the Docker image, so that's the easiest way to get the same.~
