spreads is a tool that aims to streamline your book scanning workflow. It takes care of every step: Setting up your capturing devices, handling the capturing process, downloading the images to your machine, post-processing them and finally assembling a variety of output formats.

Along the way you can always fine-tune the auto-generated results either by supplying arguments or changing the configuration beforehand, or by inspecting the output and applying your modifications.

spreads is meant to be fully customizable. This means, adding support for new devices is made as painless as possible. You can also hook into any of the spread commands by imlementing one of the available plugin classes.

Quickstart

spreads can be easily installed from PyPi:

$ pip install spreads

spreads offers an interactive wizard that takes you from a physical book to a digitized version in one single workflow with minimal user input:

$ spread wizard ~/my_scanning_project
