## Features

### `fill_form`
Fill a PDF with given data and returns the output PDF path
- `pdf_path` : input PDF
- `datas` : dictionnary of fielf names / values
- `out_file` (default=auto) : output PDF path. will use tempfile if not provided
- `flatten` (default=True) : flatten the final PDF

### `concat`
Merge multiple PDFs into one single file and returns the output PDF path
- `files` : list of PDF files to concatenate
- `out_file` (default=auto) : output PDF path. will use tempfile if not provided

### `split`
Split a single PDF in many pages and return a list of pages paths
- `pdf_path` : input PDF
- `out_dir` (default=auto) : output PDFs dir. will use tempfile if not provided

**warning** if you give a out_dir parameter, ensure its empty, or the split function may destroy your files and return incorrect results.

### `gen_xfdf`
Generate a XFDF file suited for filling PDF forms and return the generated XFDF file path
- `datas` : dictionnary of datas

### `get_num_pages`
Return the number of pages for a given PDF
- `pdf_path` : input PDF file




## Example

Fill a PDF model and add a cover page :

```python

import pypdftk

datas = {
'firstname': 'Julien',
'company': 'revolunet',
'price': 42
}
generated_pdf = pypdftk.fill_form('/path/to/model.pdf', datas)
out_pdf = pypdftk.merge(['/path/to/cover.pdf', generated_pdf])
```
