We need a software that can automatically convert input documents in Word (.docx) or PDF (.pdf) format to professional looking ebooks in EPUB (.epub) format. The input documents may contain only text or text and images.
IMPORTANT: A SIMPLE CONVERSION IS NOT ENOUGH
There are already several Third-Party software / packages that can perform a simple conversion from Word / PDF to EPUB. Such a conversion will just convert the Word / PDF file to an EPUB file with the usual changes such as reflowable content instead of page by page content, minor changes in placement of text and images, and so on. This alone is not enough. Instead the final EPUB document should look as a professionally designed ebook with appropriate layout, margin, spacing, font, color, placement of text and images, and so on. The reason we say this is because our uploaders will be usually authors / writers who can write good content but may not be proficient in designing and formatting an ebook. So they may upload the input document with minimal or poor formatting. The software must not simply convert the input document to a corresponding EPUB document, but must modify the layout, placement etc. so that the final document will be a professionally designed ebook. The final document must be in standard .epub format that can be read on any of the popular EPUB readers available today. We hope we are clear with this part of the requirement.
This application will become part of an ASP .NET MVC website, and so must be able to be incorporated into the website. There is no need for the programmer to develop any UI/UX design. The input file can be read from an input path (specified in a string variable) and the output file can be saved to an output path (specified in a string variable).
Complete Visual Studio Solution / Project(s), including the entire source code
All library files (.dll) and all related files to be incorporated into the website
Details of any third party software / packages used by the application
Documentation / comments as required to clarify the source code and explain the working of the application
NOTE: Any third party software / packages used must be free for commercial use and should be downloadable through NuGet in Visual Studio.
As mentioned above, the software must be developed in Visual Studio (preferably Visual Studio 2019) for .NET 5 using C# as the programming language.
Note-- We will fund the project 100% on selecting the winner. We will only release the fund to the winner after the project has been completed and our team validates it.
