re: Generating PDF from HTML with Node.js and Puppeteer VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I would like to suggest an additional option. The library wkhtmltopdf.org can be used, it is open source and based on WebKit which helps you to reduce issues of rendering. Also, it has options for customizing headers and footers thru custom js/HTML. It is available in all. most major OS, the only drawback it is that it is a native binary, implying there will be needed bindings (e.g DLLImports in C#) or calling the executable starting a new process (and specifying processing in the command line)

 

This is what I ended up going with several years ago when there was a request to be able to receive a PDF copy of an invoice that we were already creating with HTML / CSS. Worked well enough.
