Project description

View mixin and template filters for PDF creation from the HTML-template.

Detailed documentation is in the “docs” directory.

Quick start

  1. Add “weasy_pdf” to your INSTALLED_APPS setting like this:

  2. Help functions: safety_get_attribute(), safety_parse_dict(), format_date() (see

  3. Create data-object. When using the safety_get_attribute() function do not forget to join the related tables (prefetch_related, select_related):

    class PDFDataObject:
        def __init__(self, data_obj: MyModel):
            get = safety_get_attribute
            self.data_obj = data_obj
            self.first_name = get(data_obj, 'first_name')
  4. Prepare PDF template. Use built-in template filters: times, parse_dict:

    <!doctype html>
    <html lang="en">
            <meta charset="utf-8">
            {% load static %}
            {% load weasy_pdf %}
            <link rel="stylesheet" href="{% static '/styles/pdf.css' %}">
            <meta name="description" content="Description">
            <meta name="author" content="Author">
            <span>{{ data_object.first_name }}</span>
    <!-- Filters usage:
    {% for i in 8|times %}
        <td colspan="2"></td>
    {% endfor %}
    <td colspan="5">{{ data_object|parse_dict:'0__NAME' }}</td>
  5. Prepare view:

    class PDFView(WeasyPDFViewMixin):
        template_name = 'pdf.html'
        file_name = 'my_pdf.pdf'
        def get_object(self) -> Any:
            passport = get_object_or_404(Passport, pk=self.kwargs.get('pk'))
            return PDFDataObject(passport)
