jsPDF: PDF Generator

Do users need to create PDFs on your website? jsPDF is a client-side solution for generating PDFs with ease. (Having PDFs available on your website makes downloads and printing that much easier for users.) The PDF tool is perfect for websites that allow users to download event tickets or information, reports, certificates, maps and more.

Plus, this plugin is easy to use. Simply include the jsPDF library in the head tag, generate a PDF using the built-in functions, then connect a button to trigger the download.

jsPDF works with pretty much everything, including IE 6+, Firefox 3+, Chrome, Safari 3+ and Opera. This plug does, though, need to be running though a web server.

The plugin comes ready to go with examples of how to turn all of the following into great looking PDFs — images, font faces, HTML rendering, circles, font sizes, landscape view, lines, rectangles, string splitting, text colors, triangles and more. Each example renders perfectly so you won’t have to worry about how your documents will look when users make the conversions.

And if you run into any issues with jsPDF, the developers over at Parallax are more than willing to walk you through it. Just send them a tweet to start a conversation.
