PDF text extractor.
The goal of this project is to provide an api to extract text from specific regions of a pdf document/page and a cli to assist identifying the location of text within a document.
... pip install pdftxt
Basic Command Line Usage
Let's say we have a PDF file (PDF-DOC.pdf) that looks like this:
... pdftxt PDF-DOC.pdf
Will output a visual layout of the pdf document's pages and text elements to an html page:
from pathlib import Path from pdftxt import api filepath = 'tests/Word_PDF.pdf' with api.PdfTxtContext(filepath) as pdf: for page in pdf: # To fetch text objects from specific region # of the page, first define the region: region = api.Region(400, 300, 512, 317) # Initialize layout parameters: params = api.PdfTxtParams() # Then analyze that area of the page for text objects: text = page.analyze(region, params) # Do whatever it is we need to do with the results: for txt in text: print(txt.text)
