Markdown has become a popular choice for authoring ebooks, and there are several tools that can help you to turn Markdown-formatted files into an EPUB file. Among them is Bash PubKit maintained by yours truly. This toolset comes with everything you need to get started, including an ebook template and a Bash script for compiling EPUB files.

Bash PubKit is based on BASC-eBookGenerator, but it does feature several significant modifications. For example, unlike BASC-eBookGenerator, which uses the non-free KindleGen utility to produce a MOBI file, Bash PubKit relies on Calibre's ebook-convert tool for generating ebooks in the MOBI and PDF formats. Bash PubKit comes with an installer script which makes it supremely easy to deploy it on machines running Ubuntu and its derivatives. The supplied README.md file provides detailed instructions on using the script and the ebook template.
