reportbro-fpdf 1.7.4

Simple PDF generation for Python

This is a fork of the PyFPDF library and fixes unicode issues. It allows usage of non-latin-1 characters (e.g. Euro sign €) in Python 3. This is possible by internally using a bytearray output buffer instead of a string (and should also be more efficient). This library is used by reportbro-lib (see also ReportBro).

PyFPDF is a library for PDF document generation under Python, ported from PHP (see FPDF: “Free”-PDF, a well-known PDFlib-extension replacement with many examples, scripts and derivatives).

Compared with other PDF libraries, PyFPDF is simple, small and versatile, with advanced capabilities, and is easy to learn, extend and maintain.
