pyfpdf: FPDF for Python

PyFPDF is a library for PDF document generation under Python, ported from PHP (see FPDF: "Free"-PDF, a well-known PDFlib-extension replacement with many examples, scripts and derivatives).

Compared with other PDF libraries, PyFPDF is simple, small and versatile, with advanced capabilities, and is easy to learn, extend and maintain.

Features:

  • Python 2.5 to 3.4 support
  • Unicode (UTF-8) TrueType font subset embedding
  • Barcode I2of5 and code39, QR code coming soon ...
  • PNG, GIF and JPG support (including transparency and alpha channel)
  • Templates with a visual designer & basic html2pdf
  • Exceptions support, other minor fixes, improvements and PEP8 code cleanups

Installation Instructions:

To get the latest development version you can download the source code running:

   git clone https://github.com/reingart/pyfpdf.git
   cd pyfpdf
   python setup.py install

You can also install PyFPDF from PyPI, with easyinstall or from Windows installers. For example, using pip:

   pip install fpdf

Note: the Python Imaging Library (PIL) is needed for GIF support. PNG and JPG support is built-in and doesn't require any external dependency. For Python 3, Pillow - The friendly PIL fork is supported.
