python-pptx 0.3.2

Generate and manipulate Open XML PowerPoint (.pptx) files

python-pptx is a Python library for creating and updating PowerPoint (.pptx) files.

A typical use would be generating a customized PowerPoint presentation from database content, downloadble by clicking a link in a web application. Several developers have used it to automate production of presentation-ready engineering status reports based on information held in their work management system. It could also be used for making bulk updates to a library of presentations or simply to automate the production of a slide or two that would be tedious to get right by hand.

More information is available in the python-pptx documentation.
