UniDoc is a comprehensive PDF library for Go (golang). The library has advanced capabilities for generating, processing and modifying PDFs. UniDoc is written and supported by the owners of the FoxyUtils.com website, where the library is used to power many of the PDF services offered.
Check out the Getting Started and Example sections, which showcase how to install UniDoc and provide numerous examples of using UniDoc to generate, process or modify PDF files. https://unidoc.io/examples/getting_started/
The godoc for unidoc provides a detailed breakdown of the API and documentation for packages, types and methods. https://godoc.org/github.com/unidoc/unidoc
The API is composed of a few major packages:
- common: Provides common shared types such as Logger and utilities to check license validity. - pdf/core: The core package defines the primitive PDF object types and handles the file reading I/O and parsing the primitive objects. - pdf/model: The model package builds on the core package, to represent the PDF as a structured model of the PDF primitive types. It has a reader and a writer to read and process a PDF file based on the structured model. This serves as a basis to perform a number of numerous tasks and can be used to work with a PDF in a medium to high level interface, although it does require an understanding of the PDF format and structure. - pdf/creator: The PDF creator makes it easy to create new PDFs or modify existing PDFs. It can also enable loading a template PDF, adding text/images and generating an output PDF. It can be used to add text, images, and generate text and graphical reports. It is designed with simplicity in mind, with the goal of making it easy to create reports without needing any knowledge about the PDF format or specifications.
