Simple PDF generation for Python

Project description

This is a fork of the PyFPDF library and fixes unicode issues. It allows usage of non-latin-1 characters (e.g. Euro sign €) in Python 3. This is possible by internally using a bytearray output buffer instead of a string (and should also be more efficient). This library is used by reportbro-lib (see also ReportBro).

PyFPDF is a library for PDF document generation under Python, ported from PHP (see FPDF: “Free”-PDF, a well-known PDFlib-extension replacement with many examples, scripts and derivatives).

Compared with other PDF libraries, PyFPDF is simple, small and versatile, with advanced capabilities, and is easy to learn, extend and maintain.


  • Python 2.7 and 3.5+ support
  • Unicode (UTF-8) TrueType font subset embedding
  • Barcode I2of5 and code39, QR code coming soon …
  • PNG, GIF and JPG support (including transparency and alpha channel)
  • Templates with a visual designer & basic html2pdf
  • Exceptions support, other minor fixes, improvements and PEP8 code cleanups
