XSL FO to PDF Conversion

Hi everyone

     Is there any gem or any other way in ruby to generate PDF

from XSL FO.
I’ve been googling for hours but with no returns. Any help would be
greatly appreciated.

Thanks

You may need to shell out to FOP, or (if you’re using JRuby) call it
from the Java side.

If you don’t need to use FO as your intermediate representation, also
consider a library such as Prawn.

Thanks for the response. I’m not using JRuby. And as of now prawn too
doesnt have this functionality.
So is there any other way to accomplish this is in Ruby on Rails.

Thanks again

What functionality? As I said, Prawn doesn’t use FO, but may be a good
alternative if FO is not an actual requirement.

I gave a suggestion that doesn’t require JRuby. Please reread my
original post.

Thanks again
