grunt-prince

A simple Grunt multitask that uses prince to convert HTML files to PDF. Convertion to PDF takes care of @media print CSS rules and preserves links to remote web pages.

Nearly everything is copied over from grunt-wkhtmltopdf.

Getting Started

Setting up prince

Download and install prince from the project page.

Make sure prince is accessible from your PATH (Try prince in your Terminal).

Use it with grunt

Install this grunt plugin next to your project's grunt.js gruntfile with: npm install grunt-prince

Then add this line to your project's grunt.js gruntfile:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-prince');

Documentation

Simply add task definition in your gruntfile. See the folllowing example:

    //...
    prince: {
      dev: {
        src: 'path/to/some/html/file/*.html',
        dest: 'pdf/output/'
      },
      prod: {
        src: 'path/to/some/html/file/*.html',
        dest: 'pdf/output/'
      }
    },
    //...

Run grunt prince to execute all the targets or grunt prince:targetname to execute a specific target. Every html file defined by the src parameter will be turned into a PDF and saved to dest folder.

Contributing

In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using grunt.
