Rails Guides on the Kindle


  1. Obtain kindlegen from the link below and put the binary in your path
  2. Run KINDLE=1 rake generate_guides to generate the guides and compile the .mobi file
  3. Copy output/kindle/ to your Kindle



Post release

  • Integrate generated Kindle document in to published HTML guides
  • Tweak heading styles (most docs use h3/h4/h5, which end up being smaller than the text under it)
  • Tweak table styles (smaller text? Many of the tables are unusable on a Kindle in portrait mode)
  • Have the HTML/XML TOC 'drill down' into the TOCs of the individual guides
  • .epub generation.
