This module for Jelix offers a specific response @@C@jResponseLatexToPdf@@. It aims to convert a latex document to PDF and send the result.

These features was in Jelix 1.4 and lower, but have been moved to a new module since Jelix 1.5.

Using latex2pdf

Its alias is "ltx2pdf". So, to retrieve a response:

 $rep = $this->getResponse("ltx2pdf");

Note : jResponseLatexToPdf requires pdflatex program on the server!

If this program can not be found through a system environment variable (PATH under linux or Windows), you should assign its full path to $pdflatexPath.

 $resp->pdflatexPath = '/usr/bin/pdflatex';

jResponseLatexToPdf takes care of the latex header defining title and authors of the document. The latex content should be made available through a template. You should tell jResponseLatexToPdf which template to use by assigning $bodyTpl property with an appropriated selector. You can pass variable to your template through $body property.

More specifically, the addCommand() method can generate some latex commands at the beginning of the document.


   $resp = $this->getResponse("ltx2pdf");

   $resp->title = 'document title';
   $resp->authors[] = 'Michel Dupont';
   $resp->date = '\today'; // default value
   $resp->outputFileName = 'myDocument.pdf';

   $resp->addCommand('documentclass', 'article', array('a4', '14pt'));
   $resp->addCommand('geometry', 'hmargin=1cm, vmargin=2cm');

   $resp->bodyTpl = 'myModule~doclatex';
   $resp->body->assign('texte', $unTexte);

   return $resp;
You can’t perform that action at this time.
