Example #

//Get the epub into memory somehow
String fileName = "hittelOnGoldMines.epub";
String fullPath = path.join(io.Directory.current.path, fileName);
var targetFile = new io.File(fullPath);
List<int> bytes = await targetFile.readAsBytes();

// Opens a book and reads all of its content into the memory
EpubBook epubBook = await EpubReader.readBook(bytes);

// Book's title

// Book's authors (list of authors names)
List<String> authors = epubBook.AuthorList;

// Book's cover image (null if there is no cover)

// Enumerating chapters
