objavi

Books in booki are translated to PDF and other output formats by objavi. This instance of objavi says that it is generating the output document, runs through a progress bar, and then fails to make any further progress.

Default booki installations point to an objavi instance maintained by FLOSS Manuals, so that it is not necessary to install it locally.
