Django view that converts HTML to PDF using webkit.
You need to install wkhtmltopdf.
The versions in Debian/Ubuntu repositories (installed using apt-get install wkhtmltopdf) have reduced functionality and you will most likely want to install one of the stable binaries provided at http://wkhtmltopdf.org/downloads.html which provide increased functionality (headless, patched Qt, better rendering support).
Installation of the pre-compiled binaries on Ubuntu is as simple as;
wget http://download.gna.org/wkhtmltopdf/0.12/0.12.3/wkhtmltox-0.12.3_linux-generic-amd64.tar.xz tar -xf wkhtmltox-0.12.3_linux-generic-amd64.tar.xz sudo cp -r wkhtmltox/* /usr/
pip install django-pdfkit
Simply use the class based PDFView which is a drop in replacement for TemplateView.
# urls.py from django_pdfkit import PDFView ... url(r'^my-pdf/$', PDFView.as_view(template_name='my-pdf.html'), name='my-pdf'), ...
Then in your browser goto http://localhost:8000/my-pdf/ and it will magically render as a PDF.
See the docs for more information.
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
