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 GitHub-Flavored Markdown
We love Markdown, because it’s just plain text. It’s simple and powerful at the same time. Pure beauty. It’s this one standard that works everywhere. Okay, it works a little bit different depending on the platform you are using, but we all agree that the GH flavor is the one and only Markdown flavor, don’t we? Actually, I’m not sure what’s so special about this MD standard, but never mind. Hopefully you know what’s it all about. Anyway, here is your free online converter for GitHub-flavored Markdown. Just upload your file, cross fingers and download the result. Hope it works.The files end with
.md by default.
