Recommendations for pdf generators

hi, everyone,

i have googled around for some pdf generators. Found

  1. PDF::Writer which is a little dated
  2. Rupdf (http://scoop.simplyexcited.co.uk//2007/12/15/rupdf-simple-
    ruby-pdf-rails-plugin/ and http://agilewebdevelopment.com/plugins/rupdf)
  • it’s a little dated. Last revision was on 15th of Dec, 2007.

Any recommendations for pdf generators?

thank you

If you can afford it, PrinceXML is awesome. Also see:

or http://github.com/mbleigh/princely

wkhtmltopdf: http://code.google.com/p/wkhtmltopdf/
Rails plugin: http://github.com/mileszs/wicked_pdf

you can generate PDF from HTML templates with CSS styling

Indeed a very promising project, but way behind on PrinceXML, so it
depends on your budget and requirements in the end which one you
choose. Also wkhtmltopdf is very memory hungry as far as I remember.
That said, it’s a pretty active project, so it’s definitely something
to keep an eye on.
