pdf fdf implemenation

Does such a plugin for handling the marriage of rails data into existing
PDF forms exist?

This would be really cool.

Hi Craig,

Take a look at http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/HowtoGeneratePDFs or

Google rails pdf writer

Best regards,
Bill

PDF Writer can't do that as far as I can tell...I've been through it and
trust me, I've googled my little ears off. Finally found what I wanted
at rubyforge.org

What I did find that worked was pdf-stamper gem (uses the Ruby Java
Bridge) which has remarkably sparse documentation but I actually got it
to work (YEAH!) but the link in the middle of the page (PDF Form Fill)
that does it without java might even be better (or worse...)

Thanks, I don't generally look at wiki.rubyonrails.org because past
disrepair has been disconcerting.

For a project I am looking at doing in the future I have been
searching for something that will let me take existing pdfs so that I
can individualize them for specific users… I was recommended the
following app (it isn't free though): PDF Batch Stamp Tool, at:
http://www.pdf-tools.com… It is a command line tool, but it looks
like it would do what I am looking for quite painlessly… Don't know
if this is what you are looking for, but maybe it will help.

Best Regards,
Mark

Hey Craig --

I'm trying to do the same thing, and have come across the same total
lack of documentation. Do you have any code snippets you're willing to
share? Thanks!
