Creating your first document
The easiest way to get started is to drop the CDN hosted library into your page:
Integrity-hash generated by https://www.srihash.org/
or can always get latest version via unpkg
yarn add jspdf
npm install jspdf --save
Then you're ready to start making your document:
// Default export is a4 paper, portrait, using milimeters for unitsvar doc =doctext'Hello world!' 10 10doc
If you want to change the paper size, orientation, or units, you can do:
// Landscape export, 2×4 inchesvar doc =orientation: 'landscape'unit: 'in'format: 4 2doctext'Hello world!' 1 1doc
Use of UTF-8 / TTF:
The 14 standard fonts in PDF are limited to the ASCII-codepage. If you want to use UTF-8 you have to to integrate a custom font, which provides the needed glyphs. jsPDF supports .ttf-files. So if you want to have for example chinese text in your pdf, your font has to have the necessary chinese glyphs. So check if your font supports the wanted glyphs or else it will show a blank space instead of the text.
To add the font to jsPDF use our fontconverter in /fontconver/fontconverter.html . The fontconverter will create a js-file with the content of the provided ttf-file as base64 encoded string and additional code for jsPDF. You just have to add this generated js-File to your project. You are then ready to go to use setFont-method in your code and write your UTF-8 encoded text.
If you are using Webpack (including managed cli tools like angular-cli or create-react-app) you can import like this:
import * as jsPDF from 'jspdf'
In some frameworks you have to import jsPDF like this:
import jsPDF from 'jspdf';
You can add jsPDF to your meteor-project as follows:
meteor add jspdf:core
Build the library with
npm run build. This will fetch all dependencies and then compile the
dist files. To see the examples locally you can start a web server with
npm start and go to
