[reportlab-users] Right-to-Left languages
Mon, 14 Oct 2002 22:48:28 +0200
After downloading reportlab toolkit, and failing to write a right-to-left
and making a google search I found that there is no support for RTL. The
advice given was to try AcrobatME. Unfortunately I don't have Acrobat ME,
so I went ahead and implemented RTL support myself :)
The current version is naive and incomplete, but seems to perform the
Current implementation is based on reportlab version 1.15. It uses 'fribidi'
library to perform unicode bidirectional algorithm, which I wrapped for
python access. Currently I tried to make as litle modifications as possible
to RL code, mostly factoring out some operations to allow overriding them.
Hope there is interest integrating it in the mainstream toolkit,
