Title: how to connect to Mysql using python to print db
Post by: jclang3 on July 19, 2014, 05:52:35 pm
Newbie question.  Connect to Mysql db and print the results in a Scribus publication. This seems to be hinted at all over the forum but no single good answer. I can get around in Python so I can do limited coding. What I want/need, is using Scribus to print results from db including photos. I have a web site www.heierresource.com and I want to print it into a catalog. Converting from /to PDF loses formatting(have tried using Adobe and Architect). I am naively hoping to open a new page insert the python code and have the SQL file/table printed, then repeat using a different table. Is this possible? I have checked the tutorials and queried the forums and I just do not see the answer, I could have over looked something. thanks
