This is the ninth in my series, Out Of Notes (see Part 1 - The Challenge, Part 2 - Capsule Views, Part 3 - ePublish from XPages, Part 4 - Linked Collections, Part 5 - To SharePoint, Part 6 - By a Thread, Part 7 - MultiDatabase Export and Part 8 - Integrating with Notes 9 and the Browser Plugin). It is the last before the release of Midas LSX V5.
In this, I show how you can professionalize the exported ePub file, but with changes that would also work for Web Archive (.mht) or HTML/XHTML. The goal is to get a package that you can customize and use easily to provide content to clients, customers and salespeople in the field on mobile devices or anywhere else you want. More information and the script used are at http://mini-lessons.info/Midas16
This video shows how you can use the power of the Midas LSX integrated with the ease of the new collection exports. An interesting note for those who program with Midas users is that it also shows one of the lesser recognized features of Midas, which is the ability to work with a chunk defined as Table ID 'myBody' which is the Table with an name/id of myBody no matter where it is or how deeply nested it is.
Note: Accurate closed captions have been provided, and if English is not your first language, you might want to turn on the auto-translate. I also advise turning on HD and watching full screen so the captions show under the video.
For those curious about the actual end results, the four ePub files are linked below. From an iPad or iPhone or other eReader that supports EPUB directly, you should be able to open these by clicking on them. For most Android devices, use an eReader app and load these as books.
