[reportlab-users] Pythonesque Canvas v0.1 available for download
Fri, 27 Sep 2002 09:44:44 +0200
following the small amusements I've made yesterday, I'm pleased
to announce that you can download PyCanvas from :
PyCanvas defines a Canvas class similar to the pdfgen.canvas.Canvas
one but features an __str__ method. It works exactly the same, and
produces the same results as the original Canvas class.
But when calling str(YourPyCanvas.Canvas_Instance), you receive
the Python source code which you can run to produce the same
PDF document as your original program.
PyCanvas now deals correcly with PDFPathObjects and PDFTextObjects.
A complex test software which uses Platypus is included but can not
be redistributed under the same license : PyCanvas' license is
ReportLab's license but the test program is GPLed. However you can
use it to see how PyCanvas works well ;-)
Please consult the README *before* launching the test program.
Any comment or help to squash the last issues is very welcome.
