HTML Invoice Generator

This Invoice Generator will easily transform your HTML invoice template in fully functional invoice editor. To create your own invoice template and use it with this generator see the Create your own invoice template section.

Demo

To see the Invoice Generator in action check out working version of a sample invoice.

Setup

Because we use Sass and Compass for the styles, we'll need to make sure we have Ruby installed on our system. Make sure the ruby command is available in your command line terminal.

After the Ruby setup, install Sass with: gem install sass

And Compass with: gem install compass

To make changes to the generator you'll need Node.js with npm so make sure it is installed on your machine. After this install grunt command line tool globally with: npm install -g grunt-cli

And from the project's root install the dependencies with: npm install

Development

For easier development you can watch all files for changes and use auto livereload with the default task grunt.

Build

To build the generator just run grunt dev or grunt prod on the command line. Those will produce fully functional template and generator files in the dist folder. The production version will produce minimized JavaScript and CSS files unlike the development version which is meant for easier debugging.

Supported browsers

The generator script is tested and confirmed that is fully functional in:

  • Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Safari 6+
  • Opera 15+
  • Internet Explorer 10+

Create your own invoice template

The major rule we have for this is never start from scratch so we encourage you to download the default Invoicebus template and use it as starting point for creating your custom invoice template. Refer to our official guide on how to further customize your template.
