  • 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.

  • 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: Reddit / 6 months 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 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.

  • 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: Reddit / about 1 year 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: Reddit / over 1 year ago
