PressBooks is a book Content Management System which exports in multiple formats: ebooks, webbooks, print-ready PDF*, and various XML flavours. PressBooks is built to be used with a fresh install of WordPress Multi-Site, and makes significant changes to:
- admin interface (customized for books and structured documents)
- web presentation layer (customized for books and structured documents); and
- export routines.
PressBooks web/ebook and PDF* exports are all driven by HTML+CSS. XML outputs have no styling.
PressBooks is free software, released under the GPL v.2.0 license. Though we are always happy for donations.
*Note: we use the non-free software PrinceXML for PDF export.
