pisa / xhtml2pdf, converter written in Python

By Vasudev Ram

I had come across pisa some time ago and saw it again today. It is now called xhtml2pdf. It is written in Python and can be used to convert HTML/CSS into PDF.

Here is a list of some xhtml2pdf features, from the site:

- Translates HTML and CSS input into PDF files

- Written in pure Python and therefore platform independent

- Supports document specifics like columns, headers, footers, page numbers, custom Postscript and TrueType fonts, etc.

- Support for frameworks like Django, Turbogears, CherryPy, Pylons, WSGI

- Simple integration into Python programms

- Also usable as stand alone command line tool for Windows, MacOS X and Linux (binaries not available)

Looks useful ...

xhtml2pdf is free, for commercial and non commercial use, says the site.
