PDF generator for Acadoid LectureNotes
This program takes data files created by the Android note-taking app LectureNotes by Acadoid and converts them to PDF. This functionality is already provided by LectureNotes, but sometimes it's useful to have a PDF backup of your notes generated automatically. The goal of this package is to make LectureNotes PDF generation scriptable.
This tool requires a local copy of LectureNotes' data files. This can be
extracted from a
LectureNotesNotebooksBoard.zip backup file, or directly
copied from the Android tablet's internal storage. Calling
will generate PDFs for your notebooks and place them in the current working directory.
To run the tool from the source tree instead of installing it, call
python -m lecturenotes2pdf instead of
This tool is not complete, but it should work for many notebooks. Notably:
- Page background patterns are not supported
- Changing a notebook's default font (to something other than sans-serif) has no effect. (Font changes within a notebook are used)
- Underlined text is not underlined
The program requires Python, either version 2.7 or 3.2 (or newer), and the
ReportLab PDF generation toolkit. ReportLab can be found
on PyPI (
pip install reportlab) and is almost certainly provided
by your Linux distribution.
python setup.py install
