app_report-python is a Python client to the [AppReport API](http://reports.simpleservic.es/), it allows you to generate pdf reports based on Jasper library in a simple way.
* For **Web2py framework** users, please read [Using the AppReport client on Web2py Apps](https://github.com/simpleservices/app_report-python/wiki/Using-the-AppReport-client-on-Web2py-Apps).
* For **Windows** users, please read [How to install pip on Windows](https://github.com/simpleservices/app_report-python/wiki/How-to-install-pip-on-Windows).
* Or, if you are using **Python on Linux**, follow this steps:
# create a file requirements.txt and add this line:
# after save it, run the install command:
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
### Try it now
* This example assumes that you already drawn your report using some tool like [i-report designer](http://community.jaspersoft.com/project/ireport-designer) and uploaded the .jrxml file to the [AppReport site](http://reports.simpleservic.es/), as a "report template",
to make the things easy, we did it for you :) yay donuts for us.
from app_report.helpers.reports import jasper_report
from urllib2 import urlopen
xml_data = urlopen('http://reports.simpleservic.es/sample_resources/products.xml').read()
report = jasper_report(template_name='products', data=xml_data, xpath_expression='/products/product')
<b>Just it!</b> AppReport is a really simple, no more complex configurations or boring installations are required, just connect to AppReport API and start generating reports!
