Flip Book
#1
Hi, I am not sure this is the right place to ask. How do you meet your Flipbook needs ? Is there any FOSS software to do it ?

I need it sparingly, 2-3 books at the maximum. If there is any safe and reliable option, do share. Thanks.

Thanks. So nice of you.

Have you tried this software ? I am trying to build a single page PDF using index.html. But it is not over yet.

Can you get 'index.html' on a single page PDF. I mean how long is it  ?

LibreOffice makes good PDF's and will open a html file. There is an appimage for linux.

This one I increased the page length to 2 metres Wink  https://i.imgur.com/IHyMEB3.jpg
Still not long enough, the PDF was 2 pages but you get the idea. . https://i.imgur.com/2tf306z.jpg

Otherwise, does the html doc contain hyperlinks ? This one https://www.msweet.org/htmldoc/ has been around for ever, maybe 12 years since I last used it. Worth a look.

Thanks @rich2005.

Maybe I am doing it wrong. Do I have to save the file as HTML ?

I am currently using 20.04 default with Libre Office 6.4.6.2 and the single page PDF I created is made through Libre Office.

Can you please tell me where to change the page size ?

I will try again with a single line, one page PDF.

One line, one page and when I click the index.html in the folder ( after changing PDF file name in line 30 ), it showing the spinning icon for 20 minutes now. What to do ?

I must have misunderstood, I thought you already have something.html file.

LO first: I use a ver 7.1 appimage and already telling me there is a more recent version.
Page size is in Format -> Page Style https://i.imgur.com/eGcC38x.jpg where you can set up a user size.
and exporting to PDF is File -> Export As https://i.imgur.com/59zKId2.jpg

I do not get this bit. What PDF file, in which line 30 ? A spinning icon? One possibility, it might be trying to follow a non-existent hyperlink.

Back to the drawing board.

I will download the latest LO. Thanks.

Can you please tell me how to create a Flip Book using that repo ? Were you successful ?

I downloaded the repo, unzipped it into a folder, added a page1.pdf   PDF file made through LO and as per the repo README.md, replaced the file name in

Quote:to define the src, open pdfjs/viewer.js and change to line 30.

var DEFAULT_URL =  "compressed.tracemonkey-pldi-09.pdf";

replaced the above to page1.pdf and then clicked index.html in the folder.

Alas no. I was replying to the bit about making a single page PDF from a html file ie. quote I am trying to build a single page PDF using index.html Which looks like it was not what you wanted.

Allseems very web page orientated which is not my forté Wink

best of luck.
