InkPy - provide tool to fill Django style template in odt file

Django app provide interface to fill Django style template in odt file, and additionally convert odt to pdf file. Can be run synchronously or asynchronously mode.


This tool provide interface to fill Django style template in odt file. Your task is to provide a python script which takes 2 arguments: odt file path, and the path to save the file pdf.

The recommended way is to use the services LibreOffice /, which provides conversion from odt file to pdf from the console or Python script.

We recommend to use the library PyODConverter:

We need also to define the value in the configuration file, and add the application to INSTALLED_APPS:

    'script_path': '/path/to/your/convert/',
    'tmp_dir': '/tmp/inkpy'

To install LibreOffice in Ubuntu use:

$ sudo apt-get install libreoffice libreoffice-common openjdk-7-jre unoconv

To run LibreOffice service use:

$ soffice --nologo --headless --nofirststartwizard --accept='socket,host=,port=2002,tcpNoDelay=1;urp;StarOffice.Service'
