Print XML-defined Receipts on ESC/POS Receipt Printers

Project Description

XML-ESC/POS
===========

XML-ESC/POS is a simple library that allows you to
interact with ESC/POS devices with a simple utf8
encoded xml format similar to HTML. The following
example is self-explanatory:

.. code:: xml
<receipt>
<h1>Receipt!</h1>
<h2>div,span,p,ul,ol are also supported</h2>
<line>
<left>Product</left>
<right>0.15€</right>
</line>
<hr />
<line size='double-height'>
<left>TOTAL</left>
<right>0.15€</right>
</line>
<barcode encoding='ean13'>
5449000000996
</barcode>
<cashdraw />
<cut />
</receipt>

.. code:: python
from xmlescpos.printer import Usb
printer = Usb(0x04b8,0x0e03)
printer.receipt("<div>Hello World!</div>")

Limitations
-----------
The utf8 support is incomplete, mostly asian languages
are not working since they are badly documented and
only supported by region-specific hardware.

This is also the very first release, which is a simple
extraction from the Odoo code base. While it works well,
it needs some cleanup for public use.

Also, the doc is non-existent.
