I wonder if there is a script that can take a list of EPUB files and create an OPDS feed from it.
I am thinking about writing a program that will take a directory full of EPUB files and create an OPDS feed but before writing such a thing I wonder if anyone has done it before me.

Hello Ori,

I'm not aware of a standalone software capable of creating an OPDS feed out of a list of EPUB files. That would definitely be a nice addition to the OPDS ecosystem.

Do you plan on posting your source on Github once you're ready for a first release ?

I wrote something for my own use, I will post it to github later today. I will be happy if someone can go over it and make sure it creates a valid feed.
It is written in Perl and GTK+ for the GUI.
Tested on Ubuntu Linux 12.04

You can easily test the output if you'd like: http://opds-validator.appspot.com/

Thank you very much.
I got some strange errors.
Column 10 element "summery" from namespace "http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom" not allowed in this context
I have seen element summery inside <entry> same as I did.

Is this a spelling error?  Summery -> Summary?

‎Thank you it was an error in my script that emitted summery instead of summary.
