Convert notebooks to PDF using Reportlab

Project Description

An experimental tool to convert Jupyter notebooks to PDFs using Reportlab.


pip install nbconvert_reportlab


jupyter nbconvert --to pdf-rl MyNotebook.ipynb

Jupyter comes with support for generating PDFs by filling a template to make a Latex file, and then running Latex to convert that to PDF. This is a powerful approach, but Latex code is not a great intermediate format for automatic generation, and that can lead to a variety of problems.

This package uses the open source Reportlab Toolkit to convert notebooks directly to PDFs. This avoids a lot of complexity, but at least for now there are many things that it cannot handle and will simply skip over.

See an example output PDF.
