Quire (Alpha)

Quire is a modern, multiformat publishing framework designed to create books as authoritative and enduring as print, and as vibrant and feature-rich as the web, from a single set of plain text files. All without ever signing-up for an account, paying a fee, or setting up and maintaining a complicated server.

Quire books are scholarly, visual, and built for discoverability and longevity. They feature:

  • Page-level citation
  • Footnotes
  • Bibliographies
  • Figure images and image groups
  • Zooming images and maps
  • Video and audio embeds
  • Dynamic tables of contents and menus
  • Full-text search
  • Responsive web design
  • Web accessibility and SEO optimized
  • Outputs to web, PDF, and EPUB formats

View some of the books developed with early versions of Quire.
