ReportLab are pleased to announce the release of the Python 3-compatible version of our PDF generation toolkit.
After an extensive rewrite, both our open-source and commercial frameworks now run under Python 2.7, 3.3 and 3.4, and can be installed with pip or easy_install and managed from standard requirements.txt. The open source code is available with "pip install reportlab", and also from Bitbucket (https://bitbucket.org/rptlab/reportlab/src).
Our commercial package - ReportLab PLUS - which sits on top of the ReportLab toolkit - lets you develop documents very quickly directly from your preferred web framework (we use Django for the majority of our projects). - design PDF templates in RML, our own XML dialect, exactly as you would web templates. - include professionally designed artwork and background pages with a single tag using our PageCatcher technology. - create business and custom graphics with identical style in print and web using our Diagra charts.
The ability to create personalised, publication quality PDF documents from a CMS in real-time is a game-changer, opening new communication channels and allowing clients to streamline work and save on print.
ReportLab PLUS can be tried freely with a nag line, but needs an annual subscription before production use. All subscriptions include support hours and hot-fixes as standard. ReportLab are happy to provide support, mentoring and a design-and-build service. Use the following links for more information:
