Simple PDF generation for Python

Project description

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.

Features:

  • Python 2.5 to 2.7 support (with experimental Python3 support)
  • Unicode (UTF-8) TrueType font subset embedding
  • Barcode I2of5 and code39, QR code coming soon …
  • PNG, GIF and JPG support (including transparency and alpha channel)
  • Templates with a visual designer & basic html2pdf
  • Exceptions support, other minor fixes, improvements and PEP8 code cleanups

Installation Instructions:

To get the latest development version you can download the source code running:

hg clone https://code.google.com/p/pyfpdf/
cd pyfpdf
python setup.py install

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

pip install fpdf

Note: Python Imaging Library (PIL) is needed for GIF support. PNG and JPG support is built-in and don’t require any external dependency.
