fpdf2

fpdf2 is a PDF creation library for Python:

from fpdf import FPDF

pdf = FPDF()
pdf.add_page()
pdf.set_font('helvetica', size=12)
pdf.cell(txt="hello world")
pdf.output("hello_world.pdf")

It is a fork and the successor of PyFPDF (cf. history). Compared with other PDF libraries, fpdf2 is fast, versatile, easy to learn and to extend (example). It is also entirely written in Python and has very few dependencies: Pillow, defusedxml, svg.path & fontTools.

Development status: this project is mature and actively maintained.

We are looking for contributing developers: if you want to get involved but don't know how, or would like to volunteer helping maintain this lib, open a discussion!
