Short Description
A minimal docker image for running tabula-java PDF table extraction
Full Description

docker-tabula-java

A minimal Docker image for running the tabula-java from a Docker container. Based on java:openjdk-8-jre-alpine.

Running

You can mount a PDF file available at /full/path/to/my/file.pdf to the docker container by using the -v option to the docker run command:

$ docker run --rm -v /full/path/to/my/file.pdf:/data.pdf sseemayer/tabula-java [tabula options] /data.pdf > output.csv

To get tabula help:

$ docker run --rm sseemayer/tabula-java --help
usage: tabula [-a <AREA>] [-c <COLUMNS>] [-d] [-f <FORMAT>] [-g] [-h] [-i]
       [-n] [-o <OUTFILE>] [-p <PAGES>] [-r] [-s <PASSWORD>] [-u] [-v]

Tabula helps you extract tables from PDFs

                            (top,left,bottom,right). Example: --area
                            269.875,12.75,790.5,561. Default is entire
                            page
 -c,--columns <COLUMNS>     X coordinates of column boundaries. Example
                            --columns 10.1,20.2,30.3
 -d,--debug                 Print detected table areas instead of
                            processing.

 -i,--silent                Suppress all stderr output.
 -n,--no-spreadsheet        Force PDF not to be extracted using
                            spreadsheet-style extraction (if there are
                            ruling lines separating each cell, as in a PDF
                            of an Excel spreadsheet)

 -r,--spreadsheet           Force PDF to be extracted using
                            spreadsheet-style extraction (if there are
