Good resources to learn how to dynamically generate pdf's in Rails ?

Alternatively, there tools like pdfkit if you want to build off HTML pages (and are happy to deal with wkhtmltopdf and it's older style CSS).
Converting HTML to PDF using Rails
5 projects | dev.to | 7 Jun 2021
A couple of popular gems to convert HTML to PDF in Rails are PDFKit and WickedPDF. They both use a command line utility called wkhtmltopdf under the hood; which uses WebKit to render a PDF from HTML.

Of the HTML-based pdf-engines pandoc supports, prince would have the best typography, but I don't like recommending Prince because it's proprietary and costs money. (I try to stick to open source when I can.) wkhtmltopdf is the fastest, but uses a pretty old codebase, and doesn't even support paged/print css. weasyprint is a little better in my experience, but still has a ways to go typographically. pagedjs-cli is just a wrapper around headless Chrome/Chromium, and while Chrome has made improvements with regard to typography, Google turns off some of those features (e.g., hyphens) in headless mode, which is annoying.

Use Exiv2 to extract GPS data from Images using CFML
2 projects | dev.to | 6 Jul 2022
Disclaimer: I stopped using many BIFs years ago in favor of dropping down to the command line and either using CFExecute or CFX_Exec[http://adiabata.com/cfx_exec.cfm] to run apps like WKHTMLTOPDF (for PDF generation) and GraphicsMagick (for image manipulation). The result has been faster performance, higher quality results (data or display-wise) and the ability to perform tasks offline and/or concurrently.
