Converting Html to Pdf using wkhtmltopdf.

Project Description


It works on wkhtmltopdf . dj-wkhtmltopdf will allow user to organize their own pdf generator through django admin without any deployment :).

Mainly I was inspired by django-wkhtmltopdf . When I am working on Eccomerce project we want to generate invoice for orders.So we preferred wkhtmltopdf for pdf generator using django-wkhtmltopdf wrapper. Every time we are doing some modifications in local server and pushing this modifications into production but we have faced different(I mean design) issues in production,then we resolved issues in local and pushed into production,but it is so painful then I came to this thought. Requirements:

Install the wkhtmltopdf . Python 2.6+ and 3.3+ is supported. Installation:

Run pip install dj-wkhtmltopdf.

Add ‘djwkhtmltopdf’ to INSTALLED_APPS in your .

Then run the python syncdb .

By default it will execute the first wkhtmltopdf command found on your PATH .

If you can’t add wkhtmltopdf to your PATH you can set WKHTMLTOPDF_CMD to a specific execuatable:

e.g. in

WKHTML_TO_PDF_CMD = ‘/path/to/my/wkhtmltopdf’

You may also set wkhtmltopdf options through django admin or WKHTML_OPTIONS in to a dictionary of default command-line options.

Like this is: WKHTML_OPTIONS = { ‘–quiet’: True, } Important Note:

I’ve tested it only on Ubuntu but haven’t tested it on Mac and Windows. License:
