Description

I think the article "Outputting PDFs with Django" should be extended to list up the "pisa" project. It allows easy creation of PDF out of HTML and CSS and is written in pure Python using the Reportlab Library. In the distribution a demo for Django integration is provided.

None of the links you provide are part of the official Django documentation. DjangoSnippets is a useful community resource, but it isn't part of the official core Django distribution. If you think a snippet needs to be improved, contact the snippet author, or write a snippet of your own.

russelm, "Outputting PDFs with Django" already mentions ReportLab. Mentioning Pisa -- that is a high level layer above ReportLab and shares Django's spirit of simplicity -- would do no harm and help people to achieve their goals more easily. So I'm +1 for perenzo's suggestion to mention pisa.
