  Description     : Simple PDF generation for Python

packaging is as usual: python --command-packages=stdeb.command debianize --package=python-pyfpdf

PyFPDF is a library for PDF document generation under Python, ported from php 
(see FPDF "Free"-PDF, a well-known PDFlib-extension replacement with many examples, 
scripts and derivatives). 

Main features

    Easy to use (and easy to extend)
    Many simple examples and scripts available in many languages
    No external dependencies or extensions (optionally PIL for JPG support)
    No installation, no compilation or other libraries (DLL) required
    Small and compact code, useful for testing new features and teaching 

This repository is a fork of the library original port by Max Pat, with the following enhancements:

    Python 2.5 to 2.7 support (with experimental Python3 support)
    Unicode (UTF-8) TrueType font subset embedding (Central European, Cyrillic, Greek, Baltic, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Hindi and almost any other language in the world) New! based on sFPDF LGPL3 PHP version from Ian Back
    Improved installers (, py2exe, PyPI) support
    Barcode I2of5 and code39, QR code coming soon ...
    PNG, GIF and JPG support (including transparency and alpha channel) New!
    Exceptions support, other minor fixes, improvements and PEP8 code cleanups
    Port of Tutorial and ReferenceManual (spanish translation available)
