Conversion API

The API exposes a single function 'convert'. Using this function, you can input a multitude of settings, which are further specified below:

var pdf = require('phantom-html2pdf');

pdf.convert(options, function(result) {

	/* Using a buffer and callback */
	result.toBuffer(function(returnedBuffer) {});

	/* Using a readable stream */
	var stream = result.toStream();

	/* Using the temp file path */
	var tmpPath = result.getTmpPath();

	/* Using the file writer and callback */
	result.toFile("/path/to/file.pdf", function() {});


Calling convert() requires an options object, which includes the following definitions:

	"html" : "Path to HTML file",
	"css" : "Path to additional CSS file",
	"js" : "Path to additional JavaScript file",
	"runnings" : "Path to runnings file. Check further below for explanation.",
	"paperSize" : "Two ways to do this, see below",
	"deleteOnAction" : true/false (Deletes the created temp file once you access it via toBuffer() or toFile())

Instead of paths, one can also provide properly escaped source code.

Paper Size

Either supply a paper format, orientation and border (this is the default)

{format: 'A4', orientation: 'portrait', border: '1cm'}

Or supply a page width, height and border.

{width: '3in', height: '2in', border: '0.5in'}

See link below for accepted units and formats

Runnings File


Known issues

On Macs the generated PDF is going to be a bitmap, however it works perfectly fine on Linux and Windows Servers. So be careful when developing and testing on Macs; it's going to work in production :-)
