PDF Generator

The PDF Generator plugin automatically exports articles and pages as PDF files as part of the site generation process. PDFs are saved to: output/pdf/


You should ensure you have the rst2pdf module installed, which can be accomplished via:

pip install rst2pdf

If you are converting Markdown sources to PDF, you also need the xhtml2pdf module, which can be installed with:

pip install xhtml2pdf


To customize the PDF output, you can use the following settings in your Pelican configuration file:


PDF_STYLE_PATH defines a new path where rst2pdf will look for style sheets, while PDF_STYLE specifies the style you want to use. For a description of the available styles, please read the rst2pdf documentation.
