Groovy Document Builder

A document builder for Groovy for PDF or Word documents. This is still very much a work in progress.

Note
Because of the use of Groovy traits within the project, the minimum version of Groovy required is 2.3.

Example

@Grab(group='com.craigburke.document', module='pdf', version='0.5.0')
@Grab(group='com.craigburke.document', module='word', version='0.5.0')

import com.craigburke.document.builder.PdfDocumentBuilder
import com.craigburke.document.builder.WordDocumentBuilder

def builders = [
    new PdfDocumentBuilder(new File('example.pdf')),
    new WordDocumentBuilder(new File('example.docx'))
]

String[] COLORS = ['#FF0000', '#FF7F00', '#FFFF00', '#00FF00', '#0000FF', '#4B0082', '#8B00FF']

String GROOVY_IMAGE_URL = 'http://www.craigburke.com/images/posts/groovy-logo.png'
byte[] groovyImageData = new URL(GROOVY_IMAGE_URL).bytes

builders.each { builder ->
    builder.create {
        document(font: [family: 'Helvetica', size: 14.pt], margin: [top: 0.75.inches]) {

        heading1 "Groovy Document Builder v.0.5.0", font: [color: '#990000', size: 22.pt]

        heading2 "Paragraphs"

        paragraph {
            font.size = 42.pt
            "Hello World".eachWithIndex { letter, index ->
                font.color = COLORS[ index % COLORS.size() ]
                text letter
                font.size--
            }
            lineBreak()
            text "Current font size is ${font.size}pt"
        }

        paragraph "Back to default font and aligned to the right", align: 'right'

        paragraph(margin: [left: 1.25.inches, right: 1.inch, top: 0.25.inches, bottom: 0.25.inches]) {
            font << [family: 'Times-Roman', bold: true, italic: true, color: '#333333']
            text "A paragraph with a different font and margins"
        }

        paragraph(align: 'center') {
            image(data: groovyImageData, width: 250.px, height: 125.px)
            lineBreak()
            text "Figure 1: Groovy Logo", font: [italic: true, size: 9.pt]
        }

        heading2 "Tables"

        table(width: 6.inches, padding: 4.px, border: [size: 3.px, color: '#990000']) {
            row {
                cell('Left Aligned', width:1.5.inches, align:'left')
                cell('Center Aligned', width:2.inches, align:'center')
                cell(align:'right') {
                    text 'Right Aligned'
                }
            }
        }
    }}
