Some of these rake tasks were built early on as temporary stop-gaps because we needed to be able to ingest texts before we'd built a backend to handle it.
If you want to ingest a text through the CLI, the best way to do it is to use the
There's a little issue in that Wasteland EPUB — it has some CSS in it's stylesheet that our parser takes issue with. We'll catch the exception there but for now, here's a sample Wasteland project with a corrected EPUB that you can use to test out Manifold's ingestion:
To get it into Manifold, follow these steps:
On the frontend, you should see a new wasteland project with the imported EPUB.
Going forward, the ideal way for people to ingest texts is through the Manifold backend. We haven't documented this yet, but there are mechanisms for creating projects and texts through the backend rather than the CLI. We'll get those docs up soon!

I expect we'll have an update with better docs in the next few days. I'll update this issue when I there's demonstrable progress.
Take a look at these updated docs and see if you're able to get up and running by following the steps there:
