Looking for a free text converter? Look no more, upload your EPUB files and convert them to Emacs Org mode files. Yes, it’s that easy.
Converting from EPUB
EPUB is an e-book file format that is actually based on a ton of other formats like XML, XHTML, DTBook, SVG, CSS, NCX (What the hell is this?), Dublin Core (sounds bad ass) and Zip. Oh man, I’m not sure if there is a text format that is a combination of more formats than EPUB. It’s like someone tried to combine every fricking format out there. Couldn’t they stick with fewer file formats? Anyway, we have this free online converter here. Not sure if it works, but just upload your file and we’ll see what we can do. I have to google if there is a book about EPUB. This history of the greatest text format of all times. Or something like that.
The files end with
.epub by default.
Converting to Emacs Org mode
Oh man, we really learned a lot about text formats already, but Emacs Org mode is the nerdiest thing ever. It’s like a note keeping app and a todo app, like a project management tool and a book authoring tool. But all that based on a plain-text file. That’s real digital minimalism. No cloud, no binary data, no proprietary file formats, just a simple, good old plain-text file. Add headlines, lists, paragraphs, tasks, time tracking, agendas, tables. Thank you, Carsten Dominik, for developing such a great file format. By the way, the logo is a unicorn and that’s fair, after all it’s very unique.The files end with
