A SVG and LateX template renderer from table data based on Inkscape and Jinja2

Project description


Build Status

Initially it was a conference badge creator based on SVG templates, but we thought it could be more generic and have many other applications.

DocStamp is a generic template renderer which takes the data from a .CSV file and creates one rendered template file for each row of the data.

It is PDF centric, however it can also export in some cases to PNG.

It needs:

  • Inkscape or rsvg-convert for .SVG templates, and
  • PDFLateX or XeLateX for LateX templates.

CLI Usage

The CSV header fields must match the ones in the template file.

docstamp create -i badge.csv -t badge_template.svg -o badges


To install the development version:

python -m pip install git+

To install the latest release:

python -m pip install docstamp


See setup.cfg file. Also you will need Inkscape, XeLatex, or PDFLatex installed in your system.

For unicode support in SVG exports, you need to install rsvg-convert, which is available in librsvg-bin.


DocStamp is compatible with Python 2 (we wish to believe) and 3.

We could not test it on Windows.
