Simple wrapper for tabula-java, read tables from PDF into DataFrame

Project description

tabula-py

Build Status PyPI version Documentation Status Patreon

tabula-py is a simple Python wrapper of tabula-java, which can read tables in a PDF. You can read tables from a PDF and convert them into a pandas DataFrame. tabula-py also enables you to convert a PDF file into a CSV, a TSV or a JSON file.

You can see the example notebook and try it on Google Colab, or we highly recommend to read our document especially the FAQ section.

Requirements

  • Java 8+
  • Python 3.5+

OS

I confirmed working on macOS and Ubuntu. But some people confirm it works on Windows 10. See also the document for the detailed installation for Windows 10.

Usage

Install

Ensure you have a Java runtime and set the PATH for it.

pip install tabula-py

Example

tabula-py enables you to extract tables from a PDF into a DataFrame, or a JSON. It can also extract tables from a PDF and save the file as a CSV, a TSV, or a JSON.  

import tabula

# Read pdf into list of DataFrame
df = tabula.read_pdf("test.pdf", pages='all')

# Read remote pdf into list of DataFrame
df2 = tabula.read_pdf("https://github.com/tabulapdf/tabula-java/raw/master/src/test/resources/technology/tabula/arabic.pdf")

# convert PDF into CSV file
tabula.convert_into("test.pdf", "output.csv", output_format="csv", pages='all')

# convert all PDFs in a directory
tabula.convert_into_by_batch("input_directory", output_format='csv', pages='all')

See example notebook for more details. I also recommend to read the tutorial article written by @aegis4048.
