1. What is Bubblin?

    Bubblin is a community of book lovers on the web.

    A place to read modern and next-generation books that are not only offline-first and responsive but also hassle-free (i.e. freedom from format/compatibility hell etc.) and easily take storytelling to a whole new level — ala — Superbooks!

  2. What is a Superbook?

    Superbooks are books powered with code under each page of the book. Code that can potentially output a dynamic visual explanation or some contextual substance that helps the reader dive into the story deeper or "see" to understand a key concept easily.

    See, for example, tidal locking with Moon explained in our demo book on the Solar System.

    Trivially, a Superbook can render plain-text novels too. Here are some advantages of superbooks over other ordinary formats and downloadable files in use.

  3. So what's unique in here?

    To start off, we introduce JavaScript inside ebooks. That's a very powerful feature of our books. It means you can do things like:

    1. Putting a canvas experiment to show pendulum motion in a physics book
    2. Code up a comics with CSS3 animations instead of using heavy animated GIFs.
    3. Create a music album book with multiple video in series and lyrics side-by-side.

    and so on…

    We believe that adapting books to the idea and building-blocks of web can lead us to endless creativity and expression inside of digital books and thus a better world of books.

  4. Okay. How is the current support?

    A blank superbook (the container) is supported nearly everywhere. All devices, all viewports, all operating systems and all modern browsers.

  5. I'm a writer, how does this work for me?

    The best place to start writing is our documentation page. We provide some of the best-in-class open source tools and free templates to help you start any kind of book, comics or magazine in a matter of minutes.

  6. Is there a tutorial?

    Here's a tutorial on how to write superbooks by Marvin Danig.

  7. Can, I price and sell my book?

    Absolutely! We provide a dead-simple tool to price your books and sell it anywhere in the world.

  8. Is this self-publishing?

    Well, not exactly.

    Here you can involve your friends or collaborate with designers, front-end developers and also editors and specialists to help you polish your work on the go. And then push out changes (or editions) in real-time to all your fans.

    As an artist/writer you can focus entirely on your story (content) and let the tools manage your manuscript (project) for you.

  9. What fee / cut does Bubblin take?

    Zero.

  10. Is there an iOS or an Android app?

    Native apps are planned. Our first love is web; also it is the last.
