Convert Any Blog, Web Page or Document Into an eBook with EbookGlue Conversion API

Convert Any Blog, Web Page or Document Into an eBook with EbookGlue Conversion API | eBook Publishing World | Scoop.it



Robin Good's insight:


Ebook Glue is a free web app which allows you to easily convert any web page URL, RSS feed, blog, or document file (.doc, .docx, .html, or .odt) into a standard formatted .epub or .mobi ebook compatible with standard Kindle, Nook, iPad, and Android reading devices.


You just provide the URL of your content or you upload a supported document file and Ebook Glue does the rest without ay intervention.


For those needing to convert large number of files and web pages to ebooks an API is provided that allows for precise customization of the conversion process.


My comment: Excellent free solution for low-volume needs. It may require you to test and verify format of your images and other elements in your layout.


Free to use for up to 25 daily conversions.
