Welcome

Welcome to the home of the Pressbooks Open Source project.

Pressbooks is a book content management system that exports in multiple formats: ebooks, webbooks, print-ready PDF, and various XML flavours. The system is built on top of WordPress Multisite, and makes significant changes to the admin interface, web presentation layer and export routines of a vanilla WordPress install.

Pressbooks is used by educational institutions, academic presses, small publishers, as well as individual authors. There are three ways to use it:

  • Pressbooks.com, our SaaS offering targeted at individual authors, and small publishers
  • Pressbooks hosted service, for larger institutions [contact us!]
  • Pressbooks self-hosted, for those with the time and dev resources

For a more detailed review of the options, see [link to: What Pressbooks Service Do I Want?]

On this site we provide resources for the open source community, and discuss features, changes, code and roadmaps. Get involved!

Pressbooks is free software, released under the GPL v2.0 license.
