One of the main feature of the app we want to create is to be able to generate beautiful custom PDFs and I am struggling with all the different plugins that exist. I wanted the result of my benchmark on pdf plugins and get advice on which option to choose.
Here is the page that contains the preview of the pdf we would like to generate:
From what I saw, there are 4 main options for generating pdf :
- PDF conjurer plugin. This option seems really powerful but seems to have strong limitations: it’s really hard to create the layout we want using workflow and therefore not very flexible if we want to change it, we can’t choose the font.
- HTML to PDF ([this plugin](https://bubble.io/plugin/html-to-pdf-1539064502334x134915894182150140, and this one). This option seems to be the most interesting to me be those plugins do not seem very well documented and I was not able to have images in the document.
- Using paid subscription API (docspring, html2pdf rocket, selectpdf) : is probably a good solution but those providers are really expensive.
- Using plugins that seem to convert a bubble page into pdf (this plugin and this one for example.) I’m not sure this option would work in my case because you can see in the screenshot above that I don’t want to print the entire page, only the invoice part. Maybe I could have another dedicated page in my bubble app which will only include the invoice part but could it be filed dynamically when the user clicks on the download button?
If anyone has gone through the same reflection before, I would love to get advice on this! Thank you
