What is Wikisource Export?

Build Status

Wikisource export is a tool for exporting Wikisource page in many formats like epub or xhtml. The documentation can be found here:


  1. First you need download the files and use it with PHP 5.5 or more.

  2. You should create a temp folder in the root of directories.

  3. Install dependencies

This tool depends on Composer to install some dependencies. The easiest way to use it is to run make from the Wsexport Tool main directory:

make install

Or, to install and run composer manually:

curl -sS | php
php composer.phar install

In order to use pdf, txt, rtf and mobi formats you should install Calibre in order to allow the tool to use the ebook-convert command.


This tool is split into independent parts:

  • utils : api to interact with Wikisource and others things
  • book : export tool in many formats like epub.

The tools can be used in two ways:

  • http in the http folder
  • command line in the cli folder (run ./cli/book.php)


Tests are located in the tests/ directory, to run them:

$ make test
$ make integration-test # runs integration tests (slow)
