A Python binding to Poppler-Qt4

Project Description

A Python binding for libpoppler-qt4 that aims for completeness and for being actively maintained.

Created and currently maintained by Wilbert Berendsen <wbsoft@xs4all.nl>.

Homepage: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/python-poppler-qt4/

Usage:

import popplerqt4
d = popplerqt4.Poppler.Document.load('file.pdf')

Documentation

The Python API closely follows the Poppler Qt4 C++ interface library API, documented at http://people.freedesktop.org/~aacid/docs/qt4/ .

Whereever the C++ API requires QList, QSet or QLinkedList, any Python sequence can be used. API calls that return QList, QSet or QLinkedList all return Python lists.

There are a few differences:

Poppler::Document::getPdfVersion(int *major, int *minor) can simply be called as d.getPdfVersion(), (where d is a Poppler::Document instance); it will return a tuple of two integers (major, minor).

Poppler::FontIterator (returned by Poppler::Document::newFontIterator) is also a Python iterable (e.g. has __iter__() and __next__() methods). So although you can use:

it = document.newFontIterator()
while it.hasNext():
    fonts = it.next()  # list of FontInfo objects
    ...

you can also use the more Pythonic:

for fonts in document.newFontIterator():
    ...

In addition to the Poppler namespace, there are two toplevel module functions:

popplerqt4.version()
returns the version of the python-poppler-qt4 package as a tuple of ints, e.g. (0, 18, 2).
popplerqt4.poppler_version()

returns the version of the linked Poppler-Qt4 library as a tuple of ints, e.g. (0, 24, 5).

This is determined at build time. If at build time the Poppler-Qt4 version could not be determined and was not specified, an empty tuple might be returned.
