Are there any HTML+CSS to PDF converters in ruby

Hi Ashwin,

PrinceXML (http://www.princexml.com/) seem to be the daddy of all HTML/
CSS to PDF converters. The evaluation is free although a commercial
server license will set you back a hefty US$3800.

Here's an excellent article on integrating it with Ruby:

Cheers, Olly.

And that’s for a serverwide license. If you want to install your rails app on several servers (e.g. installations on several customer servers), you’ll need to pay that license fee over and over again.

A workaround to this might be to run a PDF service on a single machine
and just make calls to that from your server cluster :slight_smile:
