Spiner is a tool that allows you to easily author you own Choose Your Own Adventure books using Twine 2 by transforming your published Twine story into an EPUB ebook.
Note that Spiner does not support all Twine 2 features. Most importantly is scripting, which is not supported since the primary focus of this project is EPUB2. So if you are looking for a tool that converts just any dynamic Twine story into an EPUB, Spiner can't help you unfortunately.
If you are however looking for a tool that makes authoring a traditional adventure book easier to manage, then read on!
The following features are currently supported:
- Markdown—an easy syntax write and format your gamebook, just like Twine's official story formats.
- Twine links—use regular Twine links, they are automatically converted to the correct format.
- Story Stylesheet—your story stylesheet is automatically included on every page in your EPUB.
- Images—both local (images on your harddrive) and remote images (images on the internet) are be embedded in the EPUB by using standard markdown syntax for images.
- Metadata—any EPUB metadata can be set from inside a normal Twine passage named 'metadata' using XML.
