jsPDF - HTML5 PDF Generator - Parallax

Normally, if you wanted to programmatically create PDFs, you would have to use a server side client, such as PDFLib, FPDF, TCPDF, DomPDF.

Here is an HTML5 client-side solution to creating PDFs called jsPDF.

It comes with a number of features, including:

  • Add images.
  • Add different font faces and change font sizes.
  • Convert HTML to PDF.
  • Add multiple pages.
  • Draw shapes.
  • Convert page layout from portrait to landscape.
  • Split strings to fit text on the page.

Browser Support

Because this uses a Javascript library, it is compatible with all major browsers, including IE6+, Firefox 3+, Chrome 3+, Safari 3+ and Opera.
