What you receive when you purchase READynamic
READynamic is a client-server based product built using Ruby on Rails. The product runs on Apache web server and uses a MySQL database (included with the installation) and the Ubuntu Linux operating system.
READynamic uses Readium JS to render EPUB 3 files, and Odyssey to rasterize pages and extract text for PDF documents. The client can run on iOS and Android devices, on Windows workstations and laptops, and on Windows Surface Tablets.
Your Datalogics Support Representative can guide you through the process of remotely downloading and installing the READynamic server software.
