Docs in azw/mobi format.

Description

I was really pleased that you do provide epub version of documentation, however, the most popular ereader out there (Kindle at the moment), does not support epub reading. I have been trying to convert the document by a few different methods and I have always got errors. Would it be, therefore, possible to convert the docs to azw and/or mobi, so these are readable for those of us who are with amazon?

Regards,

wassup

I agree that this would be useful.

Unfortunately, Sphinx (the tool we use to generate Django's documentation) doesn't support azw or mobi yet.

This feature request is tracked here: https://bitbucket.org/birkenfeld/sphinx/issue/739/please-add-a-mobi-builder

Also, the standalone versions available for download are hosted by ReadTheDocs.

I'm sorry, but until Sphinx and ReadTheDocs support mobi, there's not much we can do.

Thanks for the suggestion!
