Readk.it - browser-based EPUB reading system


Readk.it is a free, open-source browser-based reading platform, that offers to sidestep the complex and often costly process of preparing ebook content for a range of proprietary delivery systems. Readk.it allows users to harness a browser’s display capabilities to customize how the content will render there, regardless of the device being used. The component Readk.it Solo converts EPUB book into a single HTML file that can be delivered via email and read offline. Readk.it represents a vote of confidence in the improving capabilities of modern web design to deliver rich content flexibly to a variety of devices. According to Jason Darwin, the platform’s developer, Readk.it  aims to push ebook developers toward adopting “responsive design techniques, given the proliferation of devices featuring modern web browsers (which are richer in functionality than most proprietary reading systems).”
