Open Source PDF Libraries in Python

ReportLab Toolkit

The ReportLab Toolkit is an open source PDF library that implements a flexible layout engine named Platypus that builds documents from components like headlines, paragraphs, fonts, tables, bitmap images, vector graphics, etc. These flowable elements are placed in a document "story" following a set of templates for frames, pages and the entire document itself. In addition to the standard 14 PostScript fonts there is full support for custom embedded Type-1 as well as for Asian fonts.
