Looking for a free text converter? Look no more, upload your FictionBook2 e-book files and convert them to MultiMarkdown 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 MultiMarkdown
Markdown is amazing, and MultiMarkdown is a multitude of amazing. It’s like the original Markdown but enriched with more features (tables, footnotes, citations …). It helps to keep your text structured with minimally marked-up plain text, like other Markdown flavors too. It’s great to convert it to PDF, HTML and LaTeX or other formats. People even use it to write books and stuff. I have no idea what’s different to other formats, but if you’re here you probably have some MultiMarkdown files and want to convert them. Or you really need those MultiMarkdown files but have other source files, both ways work here. Upload your file and convert it. To be honest, I prefer the GitHub flavor, but that’s just me. (Don’t trust me, I’m the lonely soul writing those texts here.)The files end with
.mmdby default. More about MultiMarkdown files
