PDF formatting tool for bills
PyBill is Logilab tool used to produce PDF documents from XML files describing bills, debits, downpayments, claim forms or pro-formas.
The XML files are described in PyBill specific format (PBD-1.0). PyBill uses additional XML configuration files to customize the rendering of the PDFs (logo, sender address, sender bank data, internationalization, etc.) The chosen configuration can be directly set in the XML accounting file, into a dedicated processing instruction.
The PDF documents are produced thanks to
reportlab library. The XML data is
read and written thanks to
lxml library. PyBill is entirely written in Python.
