HTML Renderer Build status

Help Wanted

  • Looking for a contributor(s) to take this project forward as I'm unable to continue supporting it.
  • Contribute directly to the repository and update nuget packages.

Documentation, Discussion and Issue tracking is on CodePlex.

Cross framework (WinForms/WPF/PDF/Metro/Mono/etc.), Multipurpose (UI Controls / Image generation / PDF generation / etc.), 100% managed (C#), High performance HTML Rendering library.

The library is 100% managed C# code without any external dependencies (no WebBrowser control, ActiveX / COM or MSHTML dll), the only requirement is .NET 2.0 or higher.

Download the Demo application to explore HTML Renderer capabilities.
