PDF generator for EPiServer pages



We're having the functionality that you could download the pdf generated automatically from Product pages HTML in EPiServer.

We've used RotivaToPDF tool but it's having some issues like mess up the layout and slow in performance when generating PDF.

Does anyone have good references for PDF generate webservice - EPiServer Addons or implementing Convert HTML to PDF webservice. 

Many thanks.

We use this service for creating PDF:

Simple API and not very expensive.

This is not a WebService but I can recomend this one.

It's a .NET wrapper for wkhtmltopdf which in turn uses QT Webkit to render a page before converting it to a PDF.

This is the converter configuration I'm using and I haven't had any performance issues.

  public static IConverter Converter =
        new ThreadSafeConverter(
            new RemotingToolset<PdfToolset>(
                new Win64EmbeddedDeployment(
                    new TempFolderDeployment())));

Great thanks Erik & Peter!

I will give a try to see what is best suitable for us.

Not sure if this is important to you, but if I recall correctly, TuesPechkin does not work if your site is hosted in Azure.

Per is correct about TuesPechkin (wkhtmltopdf) not being Azure Websites compatible.

wkhtmltopdf uses Window's GDI APIs which currently don't work on Azure Websites.

If your site is on Azure I'd vote for as suggested by Erik.

Thanks. My site is running on Azure then I will go for service.
