Does Rails Guide in kindle format(.mobi) need deprecated because KindleGen is no longer available?


KindleGen which is required to generate Rails Guides in kindle format is not available for download. Amazon released ‘Kindle Previewer’ which is available for Windows and macOS, not available for Linux.

Actually, I have not read Rails Guide in kindle format then I’d like to hear from a wider audience which option should be taken.

My questions are like:

  1. Does rake guides:generate:kindle task need deprecated or not?
  2. Provide Rails Guides in HTML format only or provide some other option like EPUB.

Refer KindleGen is not available for download · Issue #177 · rails/rails-dev-box · GitHub

Thank you.

I believe that Pandoc can convert ePub (or HTML) into Kindle mobi format.
