fpdf2

fpdf2 logo

fpdf2 is a PDF creation library for Python:

from fpdf import FPDF

pdf = FPDF()
pdf.add_page()
pdf.set_font('helvetica', size=12)
pdf.cell(text="hello world")
pdf.output("hello_world.pdf")

Go try it now online in a Jupyter notebook: Open In Colab or Open In nbviewer

Compared with other PDF libraries, fpdf2 is fast, versatile, easy to learn and to extend (example). It is also entirely written in Python and has very few dependencies: Pillow, defusedxml, & fontTools. It is a fork and the successor of PyFPDF (cf. history).

Development status: this project is mature and actively maintained.

We are looking for contributing developers: if you want to get involved but don't know how, or would like to volunteer helping maintain this lib, open a discussion!
