I would like to thank you for the new features added in 1.15.x
versions, especially the ones related to PDF generation. I really like
the new API and find it very useful.
I've implemented most of (all?) these features in CairoCFFI , a
Python binding of Cairo, and things seem to work very well.
After trying to use these features in WeasyPrint , I have two
- I've tried to add internal hyperlinks using the "rect=[x x x x]
page=x pos=[x x]" syntax. It works when the target is on a previous
page or on the same page as the link, but it's broken when the target
is on a page that has not been created yet. Is it a known limitation, a
bug, or did I miss something about the way the feature works?
- All PDF metadata can now be changed except from "/Producer" that is
fixed to "cairo xxx (http://cairographics.org)". Would it be possible
to make this string editable, or at least let users add something
before/after this string? I can even provide a patch if needed :).
Thanks a lot,
