Simple PDF generation for Python
PyFPDF is a library for PDF document generation under Python, ported from PHP (see FPDF “Free”-PDF, a well-known PDFlib-extension replacement with many examples, scripts and derivatives).
Compared with other PDF libraries, PyFPDF is simple, small and versatile, with advanced capabilities and easy to learn, extend and maintain.

You can also install PyFPDF from PyPI, with easyinstall or from Windows installers. For example, using pip:
