ReportLab 2.0





crasso
ReporLab released 2.0 version of their open source PDF library.
http://www.reportlab.org/rl_toolkit.html

ReportLab is distributed in Python source code form and it is IMHO the best way to make PDF documents available around. If you are programming in Python, look at this code from userguide:

from reportlab.pdfgen import canvas
def hello(c):
c.drawString(100,100,"Hello World")
c = canvas.Canvas("hello.pdf")
hello(c)
c.showPage()
c.save()

And you have the brand new PDF located in your application directory! Of course, this is just "Hello world" example, and ReportLab is suitable for almost all ordinary needs. It has paragraphs, flowables, frames,...

If you have some other kind of reporting within your application, and you are thinking about moving to some another form of document producing, ReportLab should be one of the choices to include.

The most significant new feature in 2.0 version is full unicode suport. Very nice feature for the people that came from non ASCII code page! Very Happy
One new feature should be mentioned also: improved FreeTextAnnotation for an arbitary "form", suitable for different PDF's depending if you are printing document or just screen vieweng... Very suitable if you are printing your documents on a preprinted memorandums with you company logo, address and other data.

ReportLab is the best choice to make PDF's from your web site or application, download it and try:
