Wikipublisher is a Typesetting Engine that re-purposes Web content for print, with 2 mouse-clicks. It provides a Web-based Book Production platform.
- Turn Web pages into beautiful print
- Wikipublisher is an extension to PmWiki. It supports collaborative creation of print documents which draw their content from wiki web pages. In fact any web page able to be recast as Wikibook XML can be composed into a print-friendly PDF document.
- Make a print version of any page
- Sites with Wikipublisher installed look and act like normal wiki sites, with a PDF icon on every page. Some pages, such as those showing trails, page lists or categories, may have a Typeset button; pressing this button composes the listed pages into a single document.
- Choose the print style
- Readers can customise the look of the printed output, such as add a watermark, choose A4 or US letter page size, and use serif or sans serif fonts. Authors can define a default look. If a page includes a bibliography, an author can specify numbered or author–year citations.
Try it: click the PDF icon. Experiment with the options (perhaps you prefer a sans-serif font). Press the Typeset trail button; read the Welcome Letter, User Guide, or Slideshow. Look at the example book.

“I think this will be exactly what our users would want for some of their documentation and would help the holdouts that are finding it difficult to switch over to wiki’s “each topic to its own page” approach from MS Word’s “everything in one document” approach.” — Kurt Devlin
