"Why generating PDF from HTML did not make me happy" (english, ~40min)

Generating pdfs with rather complex layouts is a key feature of our product, so this talk is about my personal experience with:

  • limitations and reliability of pdf libs and developer happyness
  • how generating pdfs evolved over time at foxtag and the status quo
  • the pdf "ecosystem" in general

... and of course I'd like to learn about other solutions that I don't know

Since Study.eu mentioned Puppeteer and rails_pdf when asking for pdf creation approaches, I'll try to take a quick look at them and give a short first impression how useful they may be for

ActionView::Component

Writing and maintaining server-side rendered views in Rails was tedious and error-prone, especially in large apps. A new library developed by GitHub is supposed to improve that experience. Let's have a look what it does and how it works.
