PDF Analyzer Logo
PDFMiner is a tool for extracting information from PDF documents. Unlike other PDF-related tools, it focuses entirely on getting and analyzing text data. PDFMiner allows one to obtain the exact location of text in a page, as well as other information such as fonts or lines. It includes a PDF converter that can transform PDF files into other text formats (such as HTML). It has an extensible PDF parser that can be used for other purposes than text analysis.

Features

  • Written entirely in Python. (for version 2.4 or newer)
  • Parse, analyze, and convert PDF documents.
  • PDF-1.7 specification support. (well, almost)
  • CJK languages and vertical writing scripts support.
  • Various font types (Type1, TrueType, Type3, and CID) support.
  • Basic encryption (RC4) support.
  • PDF to HTML conversion (with a sample converter web app).
  • Outline (TOC) extraction.
  • Tagged contents extraction.
  • Reconstruct the original layout by grouping text chunks.
PDFMiner is about 20 times slower than other C/C++-based counterparts such as XPdf.
