Blender Wiki PDF Manual – september 2013

[en]

Today, September 03 2013, I baked and uploaded a new “Blender Wiki Manual PDF“, as usually on archive.org, then updated this page.

This release contains the current version of the Blender Wiki Manual 2.6 pages, converted to PDF with an automatic process.The final conversion produces a 1500 (!) PDF document.

Apart from that, I only added a short intro text (2 pages) and, in header/footer, some info about the document, the conversion author (me)  and this site for reference.

While I try to preserve all the original wiki content, there are still bugs and here and there but, doing this in my spare time, I have to find the time to find and fix most of them. The biggest challenge to ensure the PDF is “perfect” is obviously the huge size of the document, which collects hundreds of wiki pages together (644 in this release), written and composed by so many different authors worldwide (that’s the nature of a wiki of course), and changing every day, so I will try but I know it is really a though project for me, probably for anyone.

Nuova versione del “Blender Wiki Manual PDF”

(versione italiana più sotto)

[EN] Today I baked and uploaded a new “Blender Wiki Manual PDF“, as usually on archive.org.

This is the first release that has a nicer look (to my taste):

  • a small intro text by me
  • a clickable detailed TOC
  • a page header, with title, date, section
  • a page footer, with page numbering (current/total).
  • small improvements here and there
  • many bugs and quirks still there…

You can download it from the archive.org page:

Blender wiki PDF manual: a new start

A few years ago I looked (and finally found) for a way to convert hundreds of “Blender wiki” pages to a single PDF (you can read all the details and history here), using a method which never worked really well, and based on software, HTMLdoc, which today exists no more (source code is still around).

I always tried a way to replace HTMLdoc with something else, but it’s not an easy task: I’m looking for a way to do the conversion live-wiki -> finished pdf with one single command, because in that way I could easily update the PDF from time to time, and make something really useful for many others, i feel.

I am currently experimenting with wkhtmltopdf, and it seems to work somewhat better, although it has drawbacks, but still have to completely test and refine the process, which still involves some PHP preprocessing of the HTML files.

I will report about my work here, but for now you can test this, based on the Blender wiki on october 19, 2012 (I think Blender 2.64 was current at the time), hosted on archive.org:

[edit]

After a few hours, the automatic “derive” task of archive.org, gently provided more formats: now you can also read it Online, EPUB, Kindle, Daisy, Full Text, DjVu, and torrents, too!

How wonderful is it? 🙂

[/edit]

it’s still not perfect, as cover, toc, page numbers are missing but I will do better soon, hopefully.

Let me know what you think!
