handlebars-pdf

handlebars-pdf

Render PDF from handlebars. Writes to a file and returns a promise.

Example usage:

'use strict'
 
let PDF = require('handlebars-pdf')
let document = {
        template: '<h1>{{msg}}</h1>'+
        '<p style="color:red">Red text</p>'+
        '<img src="https://archive.org/services/img/image" />',
        context: {
            msg: 'Hello world'
        },
        path: "./test-"+Math.random()+".pdf"
    }
 
pdf.create(document)
    .then(res => {
        console.log(res)
    })
    .catch(error => {
        console.error(error)
    })
 

Future

Support for headers and footers, also returning buffers/streams instead of writing a file.

Contributing

I will review any PR sent, so please go ahead and submit one, if you feel like it!

Alternatives

handlebars-to-pdf Takes callbacks and returns buffers.

This module is inspired by handlebars-to-pdf, but fixes what I recognise as some shortcomings.
