  • Creating PDFs in a Ruby on Rails application
    6 projects | dev.to | 26 Oct 2021
    You have a few options when trying to create a PDF in a Rails environment. Prawn and Wicked PDF have been around for quite a while. I have been using both gems and they work fine. However, they have a few limitations that can make it difficult to handle more complex PDFs. I recently discovered Grover, which can remediate some of this inflexibility in creating PDFs.
  • Has anyone tried Grover to generate PDF files on Heroku?
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/rails | 16 Aug 2021
    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.
  • Converting HTML to PDF using Rails

    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.
