You'll need these python libraries:

And you also need in the top level of the git repo (next to flyer.py):

DOTCLOUD INSTALL

So you want to upload this to dotcloud?

  • Sign up for a dotcloud account
  • Install the dotcloud client side CLI
  • Register your API key with your client
  • Find a copy of libXrender.so.1 for linux - under Ubuntu 11.04, this sits under

    /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libXrender.so.1

    Copy it here, so that wkhtmltopdf actually runs under dotcloud

  • Then, do this:

    dotcloud push --all flyergen .

  • The --all option pushes your wkhtmltopdf along with everything else

USAGE

To run:

./flyer.py

Real Usage

To write your own templates:

  • Be sure to target webkit, since that's what wkhtmltopdf uses
