We are the maintainers of Tabula, the only free, open-source tool for liberating data trapped inside PDF files.
If you’ve ever tried to do anything with data provided to you in PDFs, you know how painful it is — there's no easy way to copy-and-paste rows of data out of PDF files. Tabula allows you to extract that data into a CSV or Microsoft Excel spreadsheet using a simple, easy-to-use interface. Tabula works on Mac, Windows and Linux -- and as a command-line tool. Tabula is purely a side-project and we don't get paid for our time. If you want to buy us a coffee, a beer or pitch in, we'd be grateful. We also appreciate thanks by email and on social media.
