kirbyBOOK is the definitive solution to publishing web based books easily.
Simple to publish. Publish, update and maintain your book easily via the integrated Panel or by using your favorite text or markdown editor. Throw in some Kirbytext (similar to WordPress shortcodes) to spice up your content even more.
Ready for your content. Add any kind of content you like. Create multiple chapters containing several articles each. Add images, tables, footnotes. Embed Youtube and Vimeo videos, Tweets and a lot more.
Awesome reading experience. Make your book available in a fully-responsive way optimized for both desktop and mobile reading experiences. Let your readers choose between multiple themes, fonts and text sizes.
ePub download. Let your readers download a copy of your publication in the well-proven ePub format with simply enabling a checkbox. Everything will be handled for you.
Based on Kirby. With the help of Kirby you set up your book on top of a well-proven file-based content management system. No hazzle with managing databases and performance drops. Backups are dead-simple.
What is included?
When purchasing kirbyBOOK, you'll get to choose between two versions of the kirbyBOOK theme:
- A ready-to-use version that you can upload to your webhost without any further ado.
- A developer version for advanced users which includes all source files for esier customization.
Each license you purchase is valid for a single website (of course you may create as many local development/testing installations as you like). If you want to use kirbyBOOK on multiple websites or domains, you may choose the number of licenses you need during the checkout process. If you need a lot of licenses (6 or more) drop me a message at email@example.com to talk about and arrange volume discounts.
