This is an ePub production of MightyOhm's soldering tutorial comic Solder is Easy: Here's How to Do It at (


I have provided an ePub and the code needed to recreate it, feel free to use the code for your own projects as per the licenses stated below.

The e-book currently passes epubcheck 4.0.2 with No errors or warnings detected. and looks pretty good in Google Books, iBooks and Adobe Digital Editions. However the images need consistent borders, so at some point I'll re-crop them.


A new ePub file can be made by using the provided via installing Python 3 and then running the script on IDLE, Thonny or the python3 command on the macOS/GNU-Linux Terminal. The script however does not work with Python 2 and I have no plans to backport.

The ePub's compliance to the standard can be verified using the supplied epubcheck by running java -jar epubcheck.jar FullSolderComic.epub.

I recommend combining these commands as python3 && java -jar epubcheck.jar FullSolderComic.epub.

XHTML, CSS and the metadata.json files can be edited using a text editor such as Atom and Notepad++.

The toc.ncx and content.opf are generated by the and shouldn't be edited as they would be overwritten.
