Princely

Princely is a simple wrapper for the Prince XML PDF generation library (www.princexml.com). The plugin will also automatically registers the PDF MimeType so that you can use pdf as a format in controller respond_to blocks.

Example

class Provider::EstimatesController < Provider::BaseController
  # You can render PDF templates simply by
  # using the :pdf option on render templates.
  def show
    respond_to do |format|
      format.html
      format.pdf do
        render :pdf => "file_name", 
               :template => "controller/action.pdf.erb",
               :stylesheets => ["application","prince"]
               :layout => "pdf"
      end
    end
  end

  # Alternatively, you can use make_and_send_pdf to
  # render out a PDF for the action without a
  # respond_to block.
  def pdf
    make_and_send_pdf("file_name")
  end
end

Render Defaults

The defaults for the render options are as follows:

layout:      false
template:    the template for the current controller/action
stylesheets: none
