Publication of HTML/PDF Reports in SENAITE

Project description


Publication of HTML/PDF Reports in SENAITE


SENAITE IMPRESS is basically a rendering engine for HTML documents to PDF. It supports any kind of international paperformat with their corresponding paper dimensions, portrait and landscape orientation and merging of multiple PDFs to one document.


Please follow the installations instructions for Plone 4 and senaite.lims.

To install SENAITE IMPRESS, you have to add senaite.impress into the eggs list inside the [buildout] section of your buildout.cfg:

parts =
extends =
find-links =
eggs =
zcml =

recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
user = admin:admin
http-address =
eggs =
zcml =

setuptools =
zc.buildout =


The above example works for the buildout created by the unified installer. If you however have a custom buildout you might need to add the egg to the eggs list in the [instance] section rather than adding it in the [buildout] section.

Also see this section of the Plone documentation for further details:


For the changes to take effect you need to re-run buildout from your console:
