ReportLab's Software Tools

ReportLab's unique PDF generation toolkit is used by thousands of developers around the world for generating attractive documents straight from raw content and data. Whatever your requirements, our toolkits can bring significant benefits to your business.

Both ReportLab toolkits (commercial and open source) are available for immediate download.


ReportLab PLUS

ReportLab PLUS is our powerful commercial package that powers some of the most famous companies in the world.

ReportLab PLUS is built to make creating complex PDFs as simple as writing HTML. Content, templating and dynamic behaviour is all controlled using our XML-based ReportLab Markup Language which will be instantly famliar to anyone with web development experience. We find we are able to develop our in-house projects over five times faster when using RML.

We include tools that allow you to take and reuse design assets from other files, meaning you can quickly use ReportLab's automation abilities whilst producing exactly the same looking documents you current make manually. All ReportLab output is of professional print-quality (and can include markings and bleed areas with a few simple commands) so a single  production run can now give you both web and print output.

ReportLab PLUS licenses come with a guaranteed number of support hours from our own in-house developers to get you up and running.

Reportlab open-source

The core of our PDF tool-kit is freely available as an open-source package. Whilst lacking some of the more powerful toosl found in ReportLab PLUS, Python-proficient developers can often produce fantastic systems from this software alone.

New features and performance enhancements filter down to the open-source package from ReportLab PLUS over time, and it is the revenue generated from the commercial package that allows us to keep this support.
