Pdfcrowd HTML to PDF API client

The Pdfcrowd API lets you easily create PDF from web pages or raw HTML code in your Python 2.x applications.

To use the API, you need an account on http://pdfcrowd.com, if you don't have one you can sign up here. This will give you a username and an API key.


The package can be retrieved from pypi. You can install it with pip/easy_install:

pip install pdfcrowd

Or you can download/clone the client and run

git clone https://github.com/pdfcrowd/pdfcrowd-python.git    
cd pdfcrowd-python/
python setup.py install


(don't forget to use your "username" and "apikey")

import pdfcrowd

    # create an API client instance
    client = pdfcrowd.Client("username", "apikey")

    # convert a web page and store the generated PDF into a pdf variable
    pdf = client.convertURI('http://example.com')

    # convert an HTML string and save the result to a file
    html="<html><body>In-memory HTML.</body></html>"
    client.convertHtml(html, open('html.pdf', 'wb'))

    # convert an HTML file
    client.convertFile('/path/to/local/file.html', open('file.pdf', 'wb'))

except pdfcrowd.Error, why:
    print 'Failed:', why
