PDF service for generating/rendering PDFs based on Open HTML to PDF.

The static service contains an abstraction of templates, an API for markup renderers/generators, a markup generator and a preview function including mockup data support.
The templates supports includes and independent areas for header, content and footer, which are assembled by overlay for each page. Header and footer are borderless overlays and can therefore also use the border area of the content.
Locale dependent CSS and native page numbers and total page number are supported.


  • Built-in markup generator
    very simple syntax, supports placeholders, structures and includes
  • Built-in preview and designer with mock-up support
    simplifies the design process by allowing previewing without the target application
  • Independent header, data and footer areas in one template (without magic)
    header, footer and data area are merged by overlaysand can therefore be formatted independently of the data area
    e.g. margins of the document can be used by the header and footer
  • Native support of page numbers
  • I18n support
    language setting is also transferred to the template and thus fonts matching the language can be used
  • Creation of markup as preview e.g. for the frontend
  • API for other markup renderers and generators
    abstract templates for individual generators and renderers
