The easiest way to get eea.epub support in Plone 4 using this package is to work with installations based on zc.buildout. Other types of installations should also be possible, but might turn out to be somewhat tricky.

To get started you will simply need to add the package to your "eggs" and "zcml" sections, run buildout, restart your Plone instance and install the "eea.epub" package using the quick-installer or via the "Add-on Products" section in "Site Setup".

You can download a sample buildout at:

  • Book text & images are placed inside the folder OEBPS or other folders that are children of OEBPS
  • Items ids doesn't contain the following characters . / ( if possible stick to letters, numbers and - _ )
  • Best practices when creating an epub:
  • Chapter names should not be all uppercase or use special characters
  • Image names should not contain spaces, periods, / or other special characters

  • At this moment any errors that would appear on the site are surpressed by the info message: "An error occur during upload, your EPUB format may not be supported"
