POC ePub Book Reader Booktorious

Category: JavaScript

I checked out this new POC app called Booktorious by August Lilleaas. It’s actually pretty neat in that it’s a 100% client side web application that reads EPUB books. So I jumped over to epubBooks and downloaded Through the Looking-Glass just to see how far down the rabbit hole I could go with this (sorry couldn’t resist). The book rendered perfectly and performance was decent considering the whole thing was being loaded at one time.

All of the code is homegrown JS, CSS & HTML leveraging August’s set of frameworks Sarge, Mediocre, and CopperPlate.

August has uploaded the code for Booktorious to Github so feel free to play around with it.
