Web to Mobi converter
Given a url to an online book or a blog it will convert it into proper mobi format to be read on the kindle.
As a good example to see WebToInk in action try converting the Real World Haskell book.
After cloning this repo:
cd WebToInk cabal install cd src runghc Converter.hs -c http://book.realworldhaskell.org/read/ -f ../books
Note: at this point the KindleGen tool will have to be run manually, in the future this will be part of the automated process.
cd ../books/Real\ World\ Haskell/ kindlegen book.opf -o Real\ World\ Haskell/.mobi

How it works
- pulls down all html pages, images and css files
- arranges them in proper folder structure and generates book.opf and toc.ncx files
- runs KindleGen tool in order to generate the mobi file
- sample folder structure and generated files can be found at the Learn You a Haskell project, which accomplishes a similar goal, except not automatically and only for one book.
