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:
- Let us host and maintain a Pressbooks network for you (PressbooksEDU plans include managed hosting, security updates, tech support and training, and will save your IT/development team countless hours)
- Host and maintain your own Pressbooks network (you will likely need developers and sysadmins capable of maintaining your network and troubleshooting any technical issues)
- Use Pressbooks.com (ideal for individual authors)
On this site we provide resources and links for the open source community. Get involved!
Pressbooks is free software, released under the GPL v3.0 license.
