Easily convert ebooks between various formats
Full Description


Container for converting eBooks with the help of Calibre.

  1. Install Docker.

  2. Read the docs:

     docker run --rm -it bwstitt/ebook-convert
  3. Convert a .epub to a .mobi and save it to the same directory:

     cd /path/to/some/directory/with/ebooks/in/the/wrong/format
     export BOOK_NAME=name of your book
     docker run --rm -it -v "$(pwd):/target" bwstitt/ebook-convert "$BOOK_NAME.epub" "$"

You don't have to export variables, but I find it easier to read.

The docker run command will log about saving the book to /target/ which is $EBOOK_DIR on your computer.


docker pull bwstitt/ebook-convert


  • use alpine linux to keep the image smaller
