Converting from Pandoc JSON

This free online converter is based on Pandoc, a command-line tool that is capable of converting nearly any text format to any other text format. Under the hood Pandoc converts text formats to an abstract tree. Pandoc uses the abstract tree to generate your desired format. That abstract tree can be stored as JSON, so that’s what we do here. Not sure why anybody would want a JSON file with a Pandoc AST, but probably you just need any JSON (JavaScript object notation) represenation. Try Pandoc JSON, it’s good to parse in any language. Hope that helps! At least it’s free.

The files end with .json by default.

Converting to 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. More about FictionBook2 e-book files
