ACBF Editor is a freely distributed, cross-platform and open source graphical application that allows anyone to easily and quickly edit comic books in the ACBF (Advanced Comic Book Format), ACV and CBZ formats. It is specifically designed for the ACBF Viewer application, which allows users to view comic books in the ACBF file format.
Features at a glance
The software is capable of loading various comics books in the ACV, CBZ and ACBF file formats, save the edited comic books to the CBZ file format with a .acbf file inside, as well as to modify various metadata, including book title, series, authors, genres, annotation, characters, languages and keywords.
Getting started with ACBF Editor
The application is available for download primarily as a universal sources archive that is installable on all GNU/Linux distributions where the python-lxml and python-imaging packages are available.
Save the archive somewhere on your path, extract it, open a terminal emulator and execute the “./install.py install” command as root or with sudo. To uninstall it, run the ‘./install.py uninstall“ command.
Under the hood and supported operating systems
As mentioned, ACBF Editor is part of the ACBF Viewer project. Both are written entirely in the Python programming language and use the cross-platform GTK+ GUI toolkit for their graphical user interfaces. At the moment, it is supported on several GNU/Linux distributions, as well as on the Microsoft Windows operating systems.
