Release date: June 15th, 2015

Authors

  • Ruikai Liu
  • Jorj X. McKie

Introduction

This is the new version 1.7 of PyMuPDF (formerly python-fitz), a Python binding which supports MuPDF 1.7a - "a lightweight PDF and XPS viewer".

MuPDF can access files in PDF, XPS, OpenXPS and EPUB (e-book) formats, and it is known for its top performance and high rendering quality.

With PyMuPDF you therefore can also access files with extensions *.pdf, *.xps, *.oxps or *.epub from your Python scripts.

Installation

Normally it should be as easy as running python setup.py install once MuPDF is in place.

Refer to this document for details.

Usage

Please have a look at the basic demos or the examples which contain complete, working programs.

You can also access the complete documentation as a PDF or as a Windows Help file.
