As I keep working on xtopdf, my Python toolkit for PDF creation, every now and then I get ideas for new applications that use xtopdf.
Today I thought of using xtopdf with Python to generate PDF calendars.
Here is a program, CalendarToPDF, which shows how to do that:
""" CalendarToPDF.py Author: Vasudev Ram - www.dancingbison.com Copyright 2014 Vasudev Ram This is a demo program to generate PDF calendars. """ import sys import traceback from debug1 import debug1 import calendar from PDFWriter import PDFWriter try: cal = calendar.TextCalendar(calendar.SUNDAY) cal_str = cal.formatmonth(2014, 02, 4, 2) cal_lines = cal_str.split("\n") pw = PDFWriter("Calendar-February-2014.pdf") pw.setFont("Courier", 10) pw.setHeader("Calendar for February 2014") pw.setFooter("Generated by xtopdf: http://bit.ly/xtopdf") for line in cal_lines: if line != "": pw.writeLine(line) pw.close() print "Calendar generated." except Exception as e: traceback.print_exc() sys.exit(1)
This example program generates a simple PDF text calendar for February 2014. Run it with:
This is a screenshot of the resulting PDF output:
