Python PDF library [closed]

What Python PDF libraries are there?

I need to make some PDF with many grids, and I’m looking for a library that allows to manage pages (multi-page). The library should calculate when the page is ended and then create the next page.

The two that come to mind are:

Reportlab. There is an open source version, and a paid version which adds the Report Markup Language (an alternative method of defining your document).

I already have used Reportlab in one project.

There is also http://appyframework.org/pod.html
which takes a LibreOffice or OpenOffice document as template and can generate pdf, rtf, odt …
To generate pdf it requires a headless OOo on some server.
Documentation is concise but relatively complete.
http://appyframework.org/podWritingTemplates.html
If you need advice, the author is rather helpful.
