although I don't follow the need to have what appears to be two completely separate HTML parsing C libraries as dependencies; seeing this in the readme for Modest gives me the shivers because lxml has _seen some shit_
> Modest is a fast HTML renderer implemented as a pure C99 library with no outside dependencies.
although its other dep seems much more cognizant about the HTML5 standard, for whatever that's worth: https://github.com/lexbor/lexbor#lexbor
> It looks like the author of the article just googled some libraries for each language and didn't research the topic
Heh, oh, new to the Internet, are you? :-D
What is an example of a fully finished python software product on github?

Judging by your previous comments, you might get what you're looking for from xhtml2pdf. (Don't be put off by the 0.2.7 version number; xhtml2pdf has been in active development for over a decade and is a stable library.) It's generally used as a library in Python projects, but it does have a stand-alone command-line interface, and the library in general is thoroughly documented so you don't need to rely just on reading the code to figure out what's going on.
Create PDFs using Python and xhtml2pdf
2 projects | dev.to | 27 Sep 2020
Here, we will generate a PDF file using an HTML template. We have to keep in mind that xhtml2pdf supports until HTML4. So, first, we have to create an HTML file that will behave as a template for our PDF file.
What are some alternatives?
lxml - The lxml XML toolkit for Python
bleach - Bleach is an allowed-list-based HTML sanitizing library that escapes or strips markup and attributes
html5lib - Standards-compliant library for parsing and serializing HTML documents and fragments in Python
pyquery - A jquery-like library for python
MarkupSafe - Safely add untrusted strings to HTML/XML markup.
lexbor - Lexbor is development of an open source HTML Renderer library. http://lexbor.com
xmltodict - Python module that makes working with XML feel like you are working with JSON
