Looking for a free text converter? Look no more, upload your FictionBook2 e-book files and convert them to AsciiDoc files. Yes, it’s that easy.
Converting from FictionBook2 e-book
FictionBook is an open (nice!) XML-based e-book format, that’s pretty popular in Russia. The format doesn’t specify the appearance of the document, it describes it’s structure. There are special tags for epigraphs, verses, quotations and a few more. It also contains the ebook metadata (author name, title, publisher) and is great for automatic processing and indexing. And the best thing: It’s DRM-free. In contrast to ePub it’s a single XML file, even images are embedded (as Base64). That’s how e-books should work I guess. If you’re wondering how e-books should not work, read a little bit about how ePub works.
The files end with
.fb2 by default.
Converting to AsciiDoc
AsciiDoc is like the older brother of Markdown. It’s human-readable without any special tools. It’s like DocBook XML, but based on plain-text mark-up (instead of XML). Add an = in front of a line to mark it as headline. It’s easy like that. Wondering who uses this text format? Wikipedia states that the Git documentation is written in AsciiDoc. I’m not Wikipedia or near as clever, but you landed here and chances are high that you are in the club of people using AsciiDoc. Or maybe you just have to use this format. No matter what, just upload the file and convert it to any other format. Hope it helps!The files end with
.asciidocby default. More about AsciiDoc files
