Presenter: John Kuefler – LimeLight Marketing
If you’ve ever had to create a PDF from one of your apps (like generating an invoice, a schedule, some type of report, or something else), you know this can be a really painful process. There are tools out there to generate PDFs, but the range from extremely difficult to use, to very expensive to purchase, or just technically not up to par.
Thankfully, there IS a tool out there that makes creating PDFs from your code easier! In this talk, we’ll look at jsreport – a server that allows you to define templates for your PDFs that your applications (in any language) can reach out to. You can do other stuff too – like excel exports and word docs! We’ll review an end-to-end setup and implementation of jsreport, and take the pain out of generating PDFs from your applications.
