Year calendar creation in Python
Generate your year calendar in Python. The result is a PDF file with 12 pages containing an image and a grid of days.
- pillow or PIL
- DejaVu fonts (if you want pyearcal work out of the box)
- BeautifulSoup (optional)
- Python 3.6+
- Prepare a directory with 12 images (different image providers are planned)
- Initialize calendar with all options.
- Language (locales for English, Czech, Slovak, Italian)
- Special days (national holidays are included + add your own)
- Fonts, colours
- Render it to PDF
