Understanding PDF conversion

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/AskComputerScience

Our great sponsors
  • Mergify - Updating dependencies is time-consuming.
  • Sonar - Write Clean Java Code. Always.
  • InfluxDB - Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time
  • Apache PDFBox

    Mirror of Apache PDFBox

    Something along these lines might be a better bet: https://pdfbox.apache.org/ - no idea if that's the best one, but you should be looking for modern, full-featured PDF manipulation libraries. GhostScript is definitely NOT that - it's an ancient PostScript interpreter that barely, barely supports PDFs.

  • pandoc

    Universal markup converter

    You might find https://pandoc.org/ to be of interest.

  • Mergify

    Updating dependencies is time-consuming.. Solutions like Dependabot or Renovate update but don't merge dependencies. You need to do it manually while it could be fully automated! Add a Merge Queue to your workflow and stop caring about PR management & merging. Try Mergify for free.
