HTML to PDF converter for PHPProject mention: is there faster way to load images to DOMPDF? | reddit.com/r/laravel | 2022-02-21
By the way dompdf suggests using JPEG images for performance reasons (they don't need to be processed). Consider if it's viable for you. https://github.com/dompdf/dompdf/wiki/Performance
SumatraPDF readerProject mention: Tips – Preview the Mac app people forget about | news.ycombinator.com | 2022-05-09

Does it look better? Maybe early 2000?

OCRmyPDF adds an OCR text layer to scanned PDF files, allowing them to be searchedProject mention: Looking to index handwritten notes | reddit.com/r/FujitsuQuaderno | 2022-05-20
After a little digging, OCRmyPDF seems pretty solid. OCRmyPDF adds a layer of "text" on your written text pdf, making it searchable. However, it does suffer from low handwriting recognition accuracy, giving me gibberish for most my handwriting notes. I do think the accuracy will improve if you can train your personal OCR engine (yep, tesseract) as documented here. It may require significant amount of time and effort, but it'll be fun and your "personal engine" will grow old with you.
Xournal++ is a handwriting notetaking software with PDF annotation support. Written in C++ with GTK3, supporting Linux (e.g. Ubuntu, Debian, Arch, SUSE), macOS and Windows 10. Supports pen input from devices such as Wacom Tablets.Project mention: Possible to request signature for free (using Adobe Reader?) | reddit.com/r/pdf | 2022-05-05
What may be easier is to tell the receiver of such a PDF to use a software like Xournal++ to place the signature. They could either use a prepared image of their signature or draw their signature into the "sign here" box created by you.
A pure PHP library for reading and writing word processing documentsProject mention: View DOCX document online using bytesstream | reddit.com/r/webdev | 2022-05-18
Your question is incredibly vague. If you’re using PHP you can try PHPWord to read the document and convert it to HTML. There are likely similar libraries for other languages.
Display PDFs in your React app as easily as if they were images. (by wojtekmaj)Project mention: Full-fledged PDF.js viewer in React | reddit.com/r/codehunter | 2022-04-25
The library react-pdf is nice for rendering a single page, but doesn't provide a toolbar or a convenient way of lazily loading pages in a scrollable view.
Tabula is a tool for liberating data tables trapped inside PDF filesProject mention: Text extraction from pdf, word and PPT | reddit.com/r/dataengineering | 2022-05-01
For table extraction from pdfs, have a look at Tabula and Camelot, two open-source projects. They work well with clean tables, both the Tabula Python binding and Camelot allow you to export directly as a pandas dataframe. Otherwise AWS Textract API is very efficient at extracting tables from pdfs, regardless of how clean/messy they are.
A DOMPDF Wrapper for LaravelProject mention: A Dompdf Wrapper for Laravel | news.ycombinator.com | 2022-02-14
The awesome document factoryProject mention: QuestPDF 2021.10 - a new version of the open-source, MIT-licensed, C# library for generating PDF documents with fluent API, now with extended text capabilities. Please help me make it popular :) | reddit.com/r/csharp | 2021-10-06
