  • Grover

    A Ruby gem to transform HTML into PDFs, PNGs or JPEGs using Google Puppeteer/Chromium

  • The gem I recommend is called Grover. It uses Puppeteer and Chromium to "print" an HTML page into a PDF. So your PDF will look exactly how your page looks in Google Chrome's print preview. This will also allow you to reuse CSS from your app rather than having to write specific CSS just for your PDF exports.
