It is fantastic and I think the best of my knowledge.But not free software.Can anybody suggest an equivalent opensource


There is no equivalent open source software to prince. However they do offer a free license if it’s just for your server I believe.

I did a big writeup on using prince with rails here:


Err my bad - personal license for use on your own computer. So you can download/use it just for your own use.
