jacob-ogre/pdftext: Extract Text from Text- and Image-based PDFs
Version 0.2.1

A large batch of PDFs may contain a mix of text-based and image- based PDFs, and one needs to extract the text from all of these files for analysis. This package offers a single primary function to perform text extraction from PDFs by trying the poppler library's wrapper in pdftools; if that fails, then Imagemagick, unpaper, and Tesseract are used to perform Optical Character Recognition.
