Version 1.4.8 of PageKicker’s Algorithmic Publishing Toolkit makes the open source platform available via single-click install for the first time.

On Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:

cd ~
git clone https://github.com/fredzannarbor/pagekicker-community.gitcd pagekicker-community
./simple-install.sh

To verify installation:

cd scripts
../test/paella.sh

Produces:

hostname:~/pagekicker-community/scripts$ ../test/paella.sh 1> /dev/null
IBM Word Cloud Generator build 32

Inspect the results:

cd /tmp/pagekicker
ls -lart
# cd to most recent directory
# completed books begin with 100** and end in .docx, .epub, etc.

Quick start:

cd ~/pagekicker-community/scripts # all commands must be launched from this directory
bin/builder.sh --seedsviacli "Fancy Bear; Kaspersky" --booktitle "Cybersecurity Demo Book"
  • runs verbosely by default, to make it run silently add 1> /dev/null to end of command
  • searches wikipedia by default

 

Experiment by adding some command line options:

--expand_seeds_to_pages "yes"
--covercolor "Red"
--coverfont "Arial"
--editedby "Charles Dickens"
