A simple metadata editor for PDFs
The main goal of Pdftag is to provide a simple and usable solution to edit metadata found in PDFs.
Other more complex solutions exist to manipulate PDFs, but they may have dependencies on Java and may be not completely free.
This project makes use of the poppler library for all the PDF information reading and writing.
Pdftag supports editing the following PDF tags:
- Creation date
- Modification date
It also displays useful non-editable information:
- PDF format
- Number of pages
Compiling and installing
To build Pdftag you need the following dependencies (including development files):
- meson (build only)
- ninja (build only)
- vala (build only)
meson build --prefix=/usr/local (or your preferred installation prefix) ninja -C build ninja -C build install
