I'm trying to generate an AZK file from the command line.
I need an AZK file because I need to test my Kindle books on iOS devices. These books are in Japanese, which currently is not supported for Enhanced Typesetting, so I need to sideload an AZK file. It's a pain to generate this in Kindle Previewer each time, so I want to automate the process.
The source file is an epub.
I convert the epub with Kindle Previewer 3 via the command line:
kindlepreviewer myfile.epub -convert -showpreview
This will create a mobi from the epub and then launch Kindle Previewer. From Kindle Previewer, I can then go to File->Export and output an AZK-- this is the part I want to automate.
It seems there was a tool called Gozak for doing this but it's not available anymore.
I tried running azkcreator via the path in MacOS but it just segfaults:
➜ ~ /Applications/Kindle\ Previewer\ 3.app/Contents/MacOS/lib/azkcreator  18208 segmentation fault /Applications/Kindle\ Previewer\ 3.app/Contents/MacOS/lib/azkcreator
So, my guess is that there is no way to create an AZK file from the command line at the moment-- but I hope someone can prove me wrong!
gozakon Github, I will give you a PR with the source.
