            How can I download an image from an AWS bucket to generate a PDF from, using FPDF?

            To use files from an S3 bucket, you need to download them first - an S3 bucket is not like a local folder for you to be able to provide a path and use the file.

            Download the file first using download_file and then pass the filename to pdf.image(...).

            The download_file method has the following parameters:

            You need to add a Unicode font supporting the code points of the language to the PDF. The code point U+2019 is RIGHT SINGLE QUOTATION MARK() and is not supported by the Latin-1 encoding. For example:

            For loop to convert txt files to pdf - only working on first file
            Asked 2022-Mar-24 at 13:19

            I have a folder of .txt files that I need to convert to pdf. I have successfully done this for 1 .txt file, but would like to do all 126 (preferably not manually, one at a time). I put my working code into a for loop to iterate through each file in the folder. The code runs, and there are no errors. However this is how it behaves:

            First file: converts perfectly, no problems. Second file: converts the first file again, then converts the second one in one document. Third file, converts the first, second and third file in one document. etc.

            Things I've tried:

            • I have tried to put in a f.close() in different places in an attempt to close the previous file before opening the next one, but that has not worked. (no errors, it just doesn't effect how the code behaves).
            • Altering the nested for loop (for x in f), and removing it completely, just having the open(file...) line and pdf.cell(200...) line in the main loop.

            Here is my code:

            While you say "I put my working code into a for loop to iterate through each file in the folder", you actually missed a spot.

            You need to create a new FPDF object at each iteration of your loop, otherwise, you are just appending lines to the same one. When you call pdf.output(output_filename), the result is indeed expected to contain all the lines from all the files you've processed so far.

            Here is an example that fixes the issue, and also shows how to correctly close the input file:

            Add support for a Unicode font and make sure to read the file in the encoding it was saved in. Also strip the trailing newlines from the lines read from the file as it made errors as well.

            Default permissions for files that are automatically created in a Linux directory
            Asked 2022-Feb-27 at 15:22

            I have a problem with an application developed in python using the django framework, it uses the FPDF library to export a file which is then used by the application to attach it to an automated email.

            When this app exports the PDF and saves it to the media directory, the file doesn't inherit permissions from its parent directory and only has read/write permissions, this doesn't allow Django to find the file so it can be attached to the mail.

            I was searching on the internet and found people with the same problem, they were recommended to use the ACL configuration to manage default permissions, I tried many times with different methods but it did not work. I don't know what I could have done wrong (I kept having the same error). Dfter having made the ACL configuration the files continued to be exported with the same permissions and when applying the command chmod 777 -R * these did not change their permissions, I had to disable the ACL configuration for it to allow me to apply that command.

            This is the error that appears:



            Answered 2022-Feb-27 at 15:22

            Can you check if the path which is being accessed is correct. As per the permissions of the files inside media folder, every user has read permission, and you are trying to read a file (in binary form).

            This error (FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'media/PaySuppiler--27022022142925.pdf') shows that path is not correct. Try using relative path based on the file e.g os.path.join(os.path.realpath(file), "../media/PaySuppiler--27022022142925.pdf")

            Why am I getting a FileNotFoundError?

            How to send a pdf file for ajax response using flask?
            Asked 2022-Feb-24 at 20:29

            I am trying to display a pdf file in the browser without downloading it for the user. So currently I have a flask function that can generate a pdf file using FPDF module and I need it to be displayed to the user in a new tab.

            Answered 2022-Feb-24 at 20:29

            With the parameter as_attachment you can specify whether the browser should save the file or offer it for display. If the value is set to False, the file should be displayed. (See documentation)

            The following example also shows you how you can deliver the pdf document without saving it temporarily.
            The use of AJAX is not necessary in this case. A simple anchor with a target should do the trick.

            Answered 2022-Feb-15 at 15:41

            The solution that did work for me using no models is below, however this is hardcoded because I found out later, that I could have used default_storage and ContentFile inbuilt in django because the files are already in memory (InMemoryFile).
