but I think I’d rather pay the owners of Prawn for a customized
solution - if it doesn’t already do what I will need for FREE.

If I remember right the other paid solution, Prince is about $5k. Not
sure
how this compares to it. Anyhow, I have found wkhtmltopdf to be a pretty
good converter, and assuming it continues to grow and be maintaned is a
nice
project if you want to covert html to pdf. Prawn I bet is good but it
felt
like learning a whole new dsl — and in my case since I already had
some
complex html it was not for me.

Started to look interesting until I saw the BUY button - $900US per
licence per platform?

Dev Env = Mac OS X
Server = Linux

Total to test then deploy = $1800US? (If I’m reading it right)

I’m going to be needing a PDF solution for Ruby in the coming months,
but I think I’d rather pay the owners of Prawn for a customized
solution - if it doesn’t already do what I will need for FREE.

Best

Yeah. My guess is the license is per server. I used a program simialer
when
doing .NET work which was great converting html to pdf … really
painless… and it was about $500 and seemed a similar arrangement. Too
bad
it was only for windows.

Prince is expensive, but not that expensive!

I have used it on one very large .edu project, and it does an
amazing job. The thing I’m still curious about with PDFNet is whether
it’s a desktop app or a server-side service. They’re marketing it as
if it was the former (box photos etc.) but there’s an API like the
latter.
