The development of the Readium-2 framework is moving quite fast:

The iOS SDK – written in Swift 3 – is now tested by several people. This is an agile development, with frequent iterations.

The Android SDK – written in Kotlin (the new language for Android development) – has started, and we expect first results by the end of the year.

The Desktop version (compliant with Windows, OSX and Linux) – written in Typescript – is also in active development at EDRLab. It aims at building a node.js SDK plus developing an end-user product named Readium Desktop, which will replace the Readium Chrome app in early 2018.

And the Go version of a Readium-2 “streaming service”, the first developed, is already in production.

  • Why did Readium launch this effort, early 2017?
  • What is the Readium-2 architecture and what are its merits?
  • Is there a link between the Readium-2 project and the W3C Web Publications and EPUB 4 initiative?
  • Who is participating to the effort currently and who should join?
  • When will Readium-2 be able to be used as an alternative to the Readium SDK as we know it?
  • Will the Readium-2 SDKs support Readium LCP?
  • Will there be a Readium-2 version of the Readium Cloud reader and Readium Chrome app?
  • Will there be a cost for using the Readium-2 framework?

If you want to get answers from the most active Readium-2 developers, please contact us and join our next Webinar, Tuesday 03/10 at 15:00 UTC, for 60 mn max (see access information below).
