Quick note on creating a Unix bash script to execute ePubcheck on Mac. Modify the path as will, here we’ll use the /Download folder.
- Download the latest stable ePbubcheck release on Github.
- Unzip on ~/Downloads/Epubcheck/
- Create a script in ~/Downloads/ePubcheck.command. The extension will allow you to execute it by double clicking, once made executable.
#!/bin/bash for epub in ~/Downloads/*.epub do java -jar ~/Downloads/Epubcheck/epubcheck-3.0.1.jar $epub done
- Make the file executable
$ sudo chmod +x ~/Downloads/ePubcheck.command
- Place any *.epub files in your Download folder
- Execute your script
Of course don’t hesitate to enhance it to fit your goals.
