I’m currently developing a Rails content management system, and one of
the useful features we’re trying to get sorted is a way to allow a
user to upload a word document or some other type of regular file, and
have it converted by the server to PDF.
I’ve seen a java programme called Alfresco do this using Open Office,
but I’m just wondering if there’s another way that’s more integrated
If anyone knows if bits and pieces of tech already exist in this area
but they just haven’t been brought together in this way yet, I’d be
keen to learn the names of these projects. Perhaps we can create a
plugin as a result of our larger project.
Looking forward to your ideas
