Booktype can be installed on any suitable GNU/Linux or Apple OS X server and in principle could run on Windows too, but this tutorial focuses on the recommended platform of Debian stable, version 8.2 (Jessie). While writing and editing books, authors can use any device with a modern web browser such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.

In this tutorial, we'll go through an installation of Booktype which will enable you and your colleagues to produce PDF books for print and screen, EPUBs for digital devices, and XHTML for your website — all from a single source. If you want to get deeper into the possibilities of Booktype, this is a good place to start. This tutorial covers Booktype 2.0.
