js-fdf

This is an FDF (Form Data Format) generator for Node.js. FDF is a format you can use to populate Adobe PDF forms.

Installing

 npm install fdf

Usage

var fdf = require('fdf')
  , fs = require('fs');

var data = fdf.generate({
  name: 'Batman',
  type: 'Superhero'
});

fs.writeFileSync('data.fdf', data);

A typical way to use the resulting fdf is to auto-fill a PDF form:

pdftk form.pdf fill_form data.fdf output - flatten

This will populate form.pdf with the values.
