Librarian converts XML-based markup language used by FNP for writing books to other formats, which are more suitable for presentation.
Currently we support:
- HTML4, XHTML 1.0
- Plain text
- EPUB (XHTML based)
- print-ready PDF
- extract DublinCore meta-data from documents;
- extract marked "themes" from documents.
- lxml http://codespeak.net/lxml/, version 2.2 or later
- additional PDF converter dependencies:
- XeTeX with support for Polish language
- TeXML http://getfo.org/texml/
- recommended: morefloats LaTeX package, version >=1.0c for dealing with documents with many motifs in one paragraph. http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/morefloats.html
Librarian uses standard Python distutils for packaging. After installing all the dependencies just run:
python setup.py install
PDF converter also needs the Junicode-WL fonts (librarian/pdf/JunicodeWL-*.ttf) installed. In Debian/Ubuntu, put those files in ~/.fonts/ and run `fc-cache'.
