NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:


choco upgrade kindle-comic-converter -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade kindle-comic-converter -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

Description

NOTE: The following text is for the most part an excerpt from the official README.md.

Kindle Comic Converter

Kindle Comic Converter (KCC) is a Python app to convert comic/manga files to EPUB, Panel View MOBI or E-Ink optimized CBZ. It was initially developed for Kindle but since version 4.6 outputs valid EPUB 3.0 so despite its name, KCC is actually a comic/manga to EPUB converter that every e-reader owner can happily use. It can also optionally optimize images by applying a number of transformations.

Warning

KCC is not Amazon's Kindle Comic Creator (AKKC) nor is it in any way endorsed by Amazon. Amazon's tool is for comic publishers and involves a lot of manual effort, while KCC is for comic/manga readers. AKKC in no way is a replacement for KCC so you can be quite confident that the development will carry on.

Input formats

KCC can understand and convert from, at the moment, the following input types:

  • Folders containing: PNG, JPG, GIF or WebP files
  • CB7, 7Z
  • CBR, RAR
  • CBZ, ZIP
  • PDF (only extracting JPG images)

Output formats

MOBI support

To support output to MOBI files, you have to download KindleGen manually and place kindlegen.exe into directory where KCC is installed.

Parameters

  • /InstallationPath: - where to install the binaries
    • Default value: "$env:SystemDrive\Program Files\Kindle Comic Converter"
  • /CreateDesktopIcon - creates a desktop icon with the installation
    • Not created by default
  • /CBZassociation - associates KCC as the default app for *.cbz files
    • Not associated by default
  • /CBRassociation - associates KCC as the default app for *.cbr files
    • Not associated by default
  • /CB7association - associates KCC as the default app for *.cb7 files
    • Not associated by default

Examples

  • Install into D:\KCC directory
    choco install kindle-comic-converter --params "/InstallationPath:"D:\KCC""
    
  • Install with all file associations
    choco install kindle-comic-converter --params "/CBZassociation /CBRassociation /CB7association"
    
  • Install and create desktop icon
    choco install kindle-comic-converter --params "/CreateDesktopIcon"
