More about project :
The code in this book will run on all 3 major platforms: Windows Mac Linux ReportLab is used by Wikipedia, NASA, Fidelity, HP and many other large and small organizations. ReportLab is fast and reliable. I have been using it for the past 10+ years professionally. It's also quite easy to learn. In this book you will learn all you need to know to generate your own PDFs.Here's a sample of just some of things you will learn: How to embed fonts Generate multipage documents Add tables Insert photos Add graphs to your PDF Add barcodes to your PDF Draw shapes Generate multi-column pages Tutorials on generating specific complex examples This book will be split into two main parts. The first part will contain pretty thorough coverage of the various parts of ReportLab. The second part will be a short series of chapters on how to create various layouts with ReportLab. This includes generating reports from data, such as XML, CSV or JSON.I am also planning a section (or series of appendices) of the book that will introduce you to other Python PDF packages such as PyPDF2 and rst2pdf and how you might use them.Release DateI am planning to release the book in June, 2018Writing Style This book will be written using my original blogging style. What this means is that the chapters will probably be shorter than most programming books (i.e. less than 20 in most cases). However the code examples in some cases may end up being longer in general so the chapter page count could be more than Python 101.I still follow the rule of giving simple examples paired with simple explanations instead of spending an inordinate amount of time re-explaining the same subject over and over.If you've never read anything of mine before, you can download Python 101 for free or read it online.Who should read this book?This book is for someone who already uses Python and would like to learn how to use Python to generate and work with PDFs. If you want to know how to programmatically generate great looking reports, then this book might be for you!What's the money for?ISBNs cost money, especially if you have multiple formats of the book (paperback, PDF, mobi, etc). The money will also cover the initial print run of the book for the backers. It will also cover copyright registration and the cost of my illustrator. It would be great if I could do some web advertising as well. I'm looking forward to working with my backers to make the best Python book possible!About the AuthorI'm a professional full time Python programmer by day and Python blogger by night. I've been programming almost exclusively in Python for almost 10 years. I co-authored Core Python for DZone. I also ran a successful campaign for my other three books: Python 101 Python 201: Intermediate Python wxPython Cookbook Book formats The finished book will be made available in the following formats: paperback (at the appropriate perk level) PDF mobi epub ...
