I love podcasts.

I use them frequently and automatically downloaded by the Podcatcher BeyondPod onto my smartphone. In contrast to podcasts, I transfered my audiobooks to my smartphone by cable – which usually was very annoying. Therefore I wrote a little script that is able to close the gap by converting all my audiobooks into subscribable podcast feeds!

Of course it is open source and can be found here:

Some adittional facts:

  • it serves a website to browse your audiobooks and subscribe to certain books
  • serves rss and atom feeds for import
  • it offers a simple password protection to prevent copy right issues
  • runs in docker container (see MakeFile and DockerFile)
  • works when placed in subdirs (e.g. reg for ssl without wildcard)
  • allows custom theming and uses material design as default theme
  • handles encoding of filenames at best effort

I use it on regular basis and would like others to enjoy it as much as I do. So please feel free to use, spread and contribute to it. And see you soon 🙂
