Forum OpenACS Development: Re: simple invoicing solution. (PS generation)

Posted by Patrick Giagnocavo on
I myself have had good success with using a package called "lout" .  You feed lout with a file marked up in a custom markup, and lout takes care of generating the PS for you.  You could then quite easily generate PDF from the PS.

I used this method to generate reports of several hundred pages from a custom TCL and nstcl combination.

As mentioned elsewhere there is also the IMHO very nice reportlab package for generating pdfs. I use it to generate invoices like this one: sample invoice and other business correspondence with an openacs package that I would gladly release if it wouldn't be totally customized and unfinished. Mail me if you want a copy nevertheless.
