Full description ReportLab is a PDF library suitable for weReportLab is a PDF library suitable for web publishers, developers or creative design professionals who need to create or automate complex (even data-driven) documents. It was developed to fill the reporting needs of large financial institutions. ReportLab uses the 'Platypus' layout engine, which builds documents from components like headlines, paragraphs, fonts, tables, bitmap images, vector graphics, etc. It places these flowable elements in a document "story" following a set of templates for frames, pages and the entire document itself. It supports the standard 14 PostScript fonts, custom embedded Type-1 fonts, and Asian fonts. The included graphics subpackage provides a set of primitive shapes as well as reusable widgets building on them. Sample collections include bar charts, line charts and pie charts. Different renderers can be used to create vector graphics (in fact, even full document pages) as individual components in PDF, EPS, and bitmap formats including JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP and PICT.ts including JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP and PICT.
