Dynamic PDF Creation

Postby curseofthe8ball » Tue Aug 21, 2012 10:42 am

We are currently seeking a programmer who can develop a solution very similar to the HTML to PDF API service found at http://pdfcrowd.com. This service allows you to send a webpage through the API and have a PDF file generated. It has some options that allow a print stylesheet to be used as well as many other options. Let's discuss the functionality further if you are interested.

You might be underestimating how complex it is to build a html to pdf renderer from scratch. If you need one from scratch, it would take a single programmer many years to develop.

I would recommending starting from dompdf or using casperjs to take screenshots and convert the png files to PDF files using Image Magick.
