newforms to display itself as a reportlab/platypus object.

Reported by: programmerq Owned by: nobody
Component: Forms Version: master
Severity: Keywords: reportlab pdf platypus
Cc: Triage Stage: Unreviewed
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: UI/UX:


Basically, each newform component could be able to display itself as a platypus object.
Each field could have a method that returns its name and/or value as a paragraph object.
An instance of a newform could also return a table or paragraph object with everything else embedded.

The idea is that it would streamline the creation of pdf reports, which is something bosses and clients like.

This is too specialised/heavyweight for Django's core, since it's just one of many, many output formats. You could write such a thing as an external application (for example, accepting Form objects as arguments, or subclassing Forms).
