updates on debsplorer

Well – a while back I was looking at how I could extend the hosting of deb files onto a word press site.  My idea was to create a plugin that would allow the server to automatically extract the latest version of a file stored in a deb file.  The idea was that if you were an author, publishing your book, that you publish you book once – to launchpad, and access the binary e-pub file from you word press website.

I’ve been working on the plugin off and on, and today I am sorry to say that I’ve not made much progress on it.  The plugin currently pulls back the latest deb file – from an address you specify in the short code, and I can create a copy of that file.  Deb files are Unix .ar files under the covers, and unfortunately I have been unable to extract specific files from the archive using php.

So it looks for the immediate term that the ability to link your published e-book to your word press site isn’t going to be possible – unless anyone out there can offer any guidance?

I am not disheartened – perhaps I need to look at other options for publishing you book from launchpad to your website, but for the moment debsplorer will have to remain incomplete.
