Note:


 * you may use of full-power of Django template: inheritance, filters, tags.
 * Unfortunately tRML does not support cross references.

Render it in a view

# coding: utf-8

from django.http import HttpResponse
from django_trml2pdf import direct_to_pdf

def myview(request, template_name='somewhere/yourtemplate.rml'):
 params = {}
 # ... populate params in your order.
 return HttpResponse(
 direct_to_pdf(request, template_name, params),
 mimetype='application/pdf')


Hint:

 * Setting Content-Disposition will tell your browser to download content as a file, instead of opening in it.
