    Hi,

    I just finished a functionality like that on Magnolia, you can see more details on the following blog post http://tmiyar.blogspot.com.es/2012/05/creating-pdf-from-website-content.html

    You will need a servlet and a callback function in case you want to use the flyingsaucer project. You can also use just iText by processing the components one by one.

    Take a look on forum threads:
    http://forum.magnolia-cms.com/forum/search.html?queryStr=Generate+PDF+from+content+

    If you have magnolia-4.4.x look at this module http://bit.ly/N3m3OJ
    It could be helpful, I don't know if works on mangolia-4-5+ and if it's
    yet maintained, but I think it's a starting point :)

    Hello,

    it´s great that you got that working. I read your blog and searched the internet but I could not figure out how you did this. If I look at Magnolia and Flying Saucer I can´t find a point where to start or how to configure this. Is there a tutorial somewhere which describes step by step what to do?

    Thanks,
    kbc

    Hi, hydrooos .
    There are many PDF tools online nowadays, and most of them have the function to export data(for example articles) to pdf. But I don't suggest you to choose the free ones. Because I don't think the free ones online have so many professional functions as the paid ones. And you'd better choose one whose way of processing is simple and fast, it can save a lot of time for you. As for myself, I used to export data to pdf with the help of another PDF SDK. It is just one of many but I do appreciate its simple way of processing. Even though I only tried its free trial package to export data to pdf and didn′t check the cost and licensing conditions, it worked great for me. Besides, this site also gives a lot of choices for processing different kinds of document and image formats. Share with you. And I will try the other guy's sharing later. I hope you success. Good luck.



    Best regards,
    Arron
