Is there anything I can do to help you add native EPUB export support and/or integrate Pandoc's export with options, so that users that do not touch the command line can use Marked for it? I work producing both EPUB and Kindle ebooks and am quite familiar with the format and its Intricacies. I have also used Pandoc to export commercial EPUBs, and also written several Github issues to fix/enhance its Markdown to EPUB export feature which were accepted by its developer. My interest in helping you add the feature to Marked is because I want to have a tool I can recommend to friends and colleagues do not touch the Terminal to export decent EPUBs, and I know none currently available that satisfies all my checkmarks.

Thanks for the offer. I'd definitely like to add ePub, but I'm focusing
on improving some of the other export options first. It would ideally be
native ePub support, though I've done plenty of command line conversions
with Pandoc and it does make it easy.
My biggest concern with integrating Pandoc directly has been licensing
issues. I haven't spent the time to figure out exactly what it would
take to offer Pandoc support within a commercial app without violating
the license, though I believe it can be done.
