Book creator: This is every bit as awesome as it sounds. The finished book looks fantastic as a PDF.
With the book creator you can create a book containing wiki pages of your choice. You can export the book in different formats (for example PDF or ODF) or order a printed copy.
[…] If you are viewing a category page, you can add all the pages in that category at once.
I’ll keep this in my back pocket for the next few plane flights.
- Black Sabbath: The Complete Guide
- Library Classification
- The Beatles (a staggering 2,300 pages worth)
This is content curation in perhaps its purest form, but I still struggle with it. Throwing together even somewhat related bits of content can be tricky because you sometimes need “glue” to put them together. Transitions can be jarring, and you generally need some central narrative to provide structure. I can’t see any way to do this, which seems a little limiting.
