Looking for a free text converter? Look no more, upload your FictionBook2 e-book files and convert them to Jupyter notebook 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 Jupyter notebook
Jupyter Notebook are the perfect playground for every nerd. The documents are based on JSON, but they follow a versioned schema, and contain ordered lists of input/output cells which can contain code, Markdown text, mathematics, plots and rich media. See what I mean? Jupyter Notebook provides a browser-based interactive interface that let’s you make those files. The whole Jupyter universe is huge. But you’re here, so I suppose you already know more about this stuff than me. You’re probably only looking for a nice and free converter and what should I say? I’ve never used Jupyter, but I built this free online converter you’re looking for. Happy converting!The files end with
.ipynbby default. More about Jupyter notebook files
