Convert LaTeX or TeX source to PDF or DVI, and escape strings for LaTeX.

Project description

This is a convenient interface to the TeX command line tools that handles all kinds of errors without much fuzz. Temporary files are always cleaned up. Whenever there are issues with the TeX source, an exception that contains all information of the TeX log will be thrown.

Example:

>>> from tex import latex2pdf
>>> document = ur"""
... \documentclass{article}
... \begin{document}
... Hello, World!
... \end{document}
... """
>>> pdf = latex2pdf(document)
>>> type(pdf)
<type 'str'>
>>> print "PDF size: %.1f KB" % (len(pdf) / 1024.0)
PDF size: 5.6 KB
>>> pdf[:5]
'%PDF-'
>>> pdf[-6:]
'%%EOF\n'
