PyBooklet

A GUI utility to convert PDF files into a 2 Pages-Per-Sheet double-sided booklets ready for printing.

THE IDEA

I needed to print a large pdf book about starting development with Python and QT and I couldn't find out how to make the print double-sided with 2 pages per sheet, so I made this tool ... with Python and QT.

Learning by doing, yes. And again, the intention behind is to start an open source project from the ground up to familiarize with all the aspects from working on a VCS System and organizing a project structure to packaging and distributing.

Usage

Two files are generated from the provided pdf file, the Front-side and Back-side files, they are to be printed in sequence :
