Driver and generator for ZPL2 lables.

Project description

Python ZPL2 Library generates ZPL2 code which can be sent to Zebra or similar label printers. The library uses only Millimeter as unit and converts them internally according to printer settings.

Example use

import os
from PIL import Image
import zpl

l = zpl.Label(100,60)
height = 0
l.origin(0,0)
l.write_text("Problem?", char_height=10, char_width=8, line_width=60, justification='C')
l.endorigin()

height += 13
image_width = 5
l.origin((l.width-image_width)/2, height)
image_height = l.write_graphic(
    Image.open(os.path.join(os.path.dirname(zpl.__file__), 'trollface-large.png')),
    image_width)
l.endorigin()

height += image_height + 5
l.origin(22, height)
l.write_barcode(height=70, barcode_type='U', check_digit='Y')
l.write_text('07000002198')
l.endorigin()

height += 20
l.origin(0, height)
l.write_text('Happy Troloween!', char_height=5, char_width=4, line_width=60,
             justification='C')
l.endorigin()

print(l.dumpZPL())
l.preview()

This will display the following preview image, generated using the Labelary API: label preview

The generated ZPL2 code is:
