Building a Book


In response to a question about today’s first post, I use Ivy with some custom extensions to create the HTML versions of my books, and then translate the HTML to LaTeX and compile that to produce PDFs.

So what are these extensions I keep referring to?

Is this sustainable? I.e., could someone else step in and maintain it? Or could it handle other people’s needs? I don’t know, but the Python version of Software Design by Example will be my fourteenth technical book, and so far it’s hurting less than any of the others.
