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

    I am looking for a PDF generation tool for a Rails project. I have looked Prawn, Wicked and PDFKit, but Grover seems to be the most easy to use. The only thing concerns me is: in order to run Grover on Heroku, I will have to add 2 additional build packs (one for node.js and one for puppeteer). Can someone share their experience on how will the extra build packs affect performance on Heroku? Because I really do not want to slow the app down. My use case is a styled HTML property list that will be mostly 2 pages long.

    PDF generator (from HTML) plugin for Ruby on Rails (by darrenterhune)

    Not sure if it is still the case, but there was an railties issue between the current version of Wicked and Rail 6.1.1 a couple months ago that caused ActiveSupport.on_load errors. I moved to a branch that reverted the railties changes (https://github.com/darrenterhune/wicked_pdf), haven't checked to see if the problem has been addressed in the main yet.
