PyDev of the Week: Qumisha Goss

This week we welcome Qumisha Goss (@QatalystGoss) as our PyDev of the Week. Q is a librarian from Detroit who gave one of the best keynotes I’ve ever seen at PyCon US this year. For some reason, the people who uploaded the Keynotes from that morning didn’t separate the keynotes from each other or from the morning’s lightning talks, so you have to seek about 2/3’s of the way through the official video to find Q’s keynote here: I personally think you should take a few moments and watch the video. But if you don’t have the time, you can still read this brief interview with this amazing person.

Adding SVGs to PDFs With Python and ReportLab

ReportLab has native support for generating SVG, but not for embedding SVGs in their PDFs. Fortunately, Dinu Gherman created the svglib package, a pure-Python package that can read SVG files and convert them to other formats that ReportLab can use. The official website for svglib is on GitHub.
The svglib package will work on Linux, Mac OS, and Windows. The website states that it works with Python 2.7 – 3.5, but it should work in newer versions of Python as well.
