I don’t use #calibre for #ebook management or reading. The only reason I have it is for converting files from #epub to #pdf and vice versa. Does anyone know of any other tool which can do the same? Preferably commandline. #foss #linux #gnu #libre_software #free_software #reading #read

What’s wrong with Calibre? I do the same. I only use it for CLI ebook converting.

I’ve struggled with this a lot.-
Calibre has CLI as well, if the GUI is really offensive. On Artix, part of
pacman -Ql calibre:
ebook-convertshows on its man page as converting from one epub format to another, it can as well convert to pdf. I don’t know if it’s possible to convert from pdf to epub, but if the calibre GUI’s does it, perhaps some of calibre’s CLIs can do it as well.
Pandoc can also convert from epub to pdf, though my experience with pandoc as a very basic user is that the results, are not of the quality I’d expect, but again, that is without using special arguments, css, and stuff, perhaps advanced users can get the best out of pandoc…
I want this too. Calibre hurts my eyeballs and soul, it’s so ugly and clunky.
you can convert epub to pdf with pandoc, but the other way around i’m not sûre it’s possible. Pdf destroy all formating
