grunt task for generating ebooks with the calibre command-line tool ebook-convert


Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-ebook-convert --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:


The "ebook_convert" task


In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named ebook_convert to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

'use strict';

module.exports = function(grunt) {
  var args = [
    ['--base-font-size', '10'], 
    ['--authors', 'Seth Vincent'],
    ['--publisher', ''],
    ['--extra-css', 'test.css']

  // Project configuration.
    ebook_convert: {
        source: 'test.html',
        arguments: args
        source: 'test.html',
        arguments: args
        source: 'test.html',
        arguments: args



  // Default task.
  grunt.registerTask('default', ['ebook_convert']);



In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
