AgateReports - Python library to generate reports from jrxml file


Recommended Posts

Since Oracle decided to make Java commercial, I've decided to create a library to parse jrxml purely in Python.

I've just started so it's still only showing text but planning on supporting other components using Python libraries. This will mean Java expressions won't be executable but I'm looking into ways to execute Java code from Python or to migrate Java code to corresponding Python code. The attached screen recording doesn't have problem because I'm only placing text without any expression.

I'm also planning to adding properties to create a file per record and to stream output to reduce memory usage. I also want to add multiple data source support.

Currently, I only have MySQL data adapter but it shouldn't be too much problem adding other adapters.

Below is a sample of what I've finished so far. I'm planning to making this into an open source project. I've named it "AgateReports" because I want to make it lower cost alternative to Java based JasperReports.
