I am totally new to eBooks / digital publishing.
I want to publish a book on a software/programming topic. It makes zero sense for it to be paperback, because I want readers to be able to copy and paste code from the book to their software editors. I also would like to include animated GIFs in the eBook, so it's more interactive, etc.
Given the above requirements, does anyone have a recommendation for which platform to publish to and which format to publish the eBook in? I here a lot of people use MS Word to write the eBook and export to PDF. But I don't think PDF supports GIFs, so I think I am looking for something else.
It's 2018, I want to publish an eBook with GIFs/animations!
If someone could add the following tags to this question:
that'd be great...
