I have a Kobo H2O Aura ebook reader. It uses the getpocket application: I send the link of a web article from my registered e-mail address to a central getpocket address, and when I turn on my ebook reader it downloads the article in ebook format so I can read long articles at ease.

But this does not work all the time: some articles simply do not go through, and some have flaws, like missing important blocks from the original articles.

Is there a good software or programming environment that helps creating a simplistic epub from a web page?

The Chrome WebToEpub extension does not seem to work.

You can use the superb, free, Calibre utility to convert HTML to EPUB. That said, there are limitations to any format conversion. For example, HTML is designed as a markup language, and EPUB is not as facile with links.

BTW, since Calibre is available for most operating systems, you can use that as a reader (although I find the multi-platform Okular a better general-purpose viewer).


You can convert a website to ePUB using https://webpagetoepub.github.io/ .
