Django application to generate latex/pdf files.

Project Description

Application to parse & make PDFs with Django

Beta : not really for production use

Features :

  • LaTeX :

    • Parse LaTeX Document
    • Render LaTeX Document Objects
    • Generate Base PDF Files
    • Combine simple LaTeX Documents
  • Good test coverage

Todo :

  • … much more

Examples :

Usage examples:

from latex import LatexDocument
ltxdoc = LatexDocument(latexstr)
print ltxdoc.packages
print ltxdoc.preamble

ltxdoc2 = LatexDocument(latexstr2)
ltxdoc3 = ltxdoc + ltxdoc2

# If some files have to be inclued
ltxdoc3.add_file("/home/cyberj/lolcat_1182.png", "lolcat.png")

f = open("/home/cyberj/motivational_4242.png", "rb")
ltxdoc3.add_file(f, "motivational.png")

pdf = ltxdoc3.as_pdf()

If pdflatex fails, it raises LatexDocument.LatexPdfGenerationError and clean tempdir. To preserve temporary directory give debug=True to as_pdf method.
