  • Generating PDF documents in Laravel
    Other popular PDF libraries include TCPDF, FPDF, and Snappy. - Source: / about 1 month ago
  • PostScript’s Sudden Death in Sonoma
    TCPDF has full support for rendering an EPS into a PDF. It can be fussy. - Source: Hacker News / 10 months ago
  • Python to what?
    Idk what’s the big problem. Maybe it’s just something like ? Using that for years. Source: about 1 year ago
  • pdf generation
    Running a headless browser to render HTML is a resource intensive task. If you only need to generate simple documents, you're better off using a tool that generates PDF directly. In the old days we used FPDF and its successors (TCPDF was the most popular). Both seem to have recent releases. There's also mPDF , that seems to be another child of FPDF. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Create PDF from Excel.
    You may want to look at a PDF library (Python/PHP/Perl/Java, etc.) You can do all you mention with a lot of flexibility. Tcpdf comes immediately to mind, there is also a Python port. If you want to learn a language, I recommend python. Learning how to make a basic program when it is something that you want, and you know what you want is a great way to learn.

  • How to insert MYSQL data in allredy prepared PDF document
    The original site still has it available for download, but most importantly, a ton of examples and documentation, that while I haven't tried the github version, probably works based on the same as the old. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Creating lots of PDFS
    I’ve tried Excel, Word and other common solutions. They’re all pretty time-consuming and repetitive, plus my requirements usually call for batching generating PDFS… most solutions are unwieldy when dealing with a high volume of PDFs. I also tried TCPDF like /u/nadalottarobot/ suggested and it works pretty well here, but I recently found this PDF generation API by Anvil. It has most of the features of TCPDF, and...

  • How can I optimize the creation of PDF's with the same layout, changing only the content??
    You may want to look at a PDF library that you can access via Python or PHP. TCPDF will definitely do this. If all the info and photo filenames are in a database or CSV file, nearly complete automation is possible. It would be especially valuable if there is need to remake PDFs in future.

  • Ask HN: Why is the PDF format so inaccessible?
    I had to recreate some PDFs at work that were created by "iText by Lowagie" which must have been a java library at the time. I redid it with the FPDF library for php, and it worked out fine. I tried some new features of tcpdf, and it wasn't much work to convert. Using inkscape to make an EPS out of an svg was also challenging. I know that postscript and PDF is based on a forth stack machine, if I really had to get... - Source: Hacker News / about 2 years ago
  • Looking for a tool/resource to create a PDF checklist generator.
    FPDF and its extended variants TCPDF and mPDF will easily do it (PHP). There are other libs in Python, Java. Most are free/open source. I have some working PHP that may be modifiable for your purposes (web form to collect data and generate checklist) if you are interested in assistance (not free though). Source: over 2 years ago
  • E-signature for volunteer applications
    I believe you can use TCPDF to generate a pdf with digital signature certification through PHP, and something like Signature Pad to capture the signature using javascript. Source: about 3 years ago
