Are there any (official or third-party liberally licensed) Rust bindings for the QuickPDF library?

I have code in Python that I want to port to Rust (to see if I can get significantly better performance). I only need a subset of the QuickPDF API, but even that would be a lot of work, so if someone's already done it and would share it, I'd be happy to try it!

Thanks.

Hi quickpdfdeveloper,

I don't think Rust bindings for QuickPDF are available, but I've created a free (MIT) PDF library for writing PDF (not reading it, though): https://crates.io/crates/printpdf

It doesn't support all features of QuickPDF, though, I mostly made it for creating graphics-heavy PDF files. But it is very fast, so there's that.

Cheers

Yes, I've seen various PDF libraries on crates.io but of course none of them has anywhere near the functionality of QuickPDF, nor the subset I need.

However, I found that it was quite straightforward to write my own Rust bindings for QuickPDF.

So my only problem now is that I can never upgrade QuickPDF because (1) it is now a lot more expensive and (2) the upgrade doesn't appear to be royalty free anymore.
