Hi Javier,

I have followed the instruction of the railscast step by step, but there
is no any response when i add .pdf to the end of the url. At the
begining of the video, he asked to install wkhtmltopdf first, i try to
install, but all failed. because the source of the github has been
deleted.

Thanks

Daisy

Well… in the Pro version it only uses prawn,

Maybe its because of the date (the free cast is from 2009)

Sorry, i made a mistake. the wkhtmltopdf is for PDFKit. i follow the
video about the prawn and no response, i search the reason, some said
because of the rails version,the video is for rail 2+, not for rails3.
and i try the PDFKit, there is another video to teach how to user
PDFKit, but i should install wkhtmltopdf, but i can find the source.
Thank you.....

I work at Expected Behavior, and we have a SaaS application called
DocRaptor that can create PDF files from HTML.

There's no need to install anything with our service, and it's easy to
include in your own Rails applications.

Here's a link to DocRaptor's home page:

And a link to our coding examples, for making HTTP POST requests against
our servers:
