Adding JsReport to Express Route to produce PDF with images
I really appreciate @administrators for providing me with feedback with working with handlebars and accessing resources via the API for js-report.
I am curious to know how can I access my local filesystem's assets using the same logic as the solution provided here:
My current work in progress is here:
My handlebars template ("maps.html") is as follows:
hi! you can use someting similar to the example described here, but first in your jsreport configuration file you need to add/update the allowLocalFilesAccess config to this value
allowLocalFilesAccess: true, that will let you require the built-in fs nodejs module, which has methods to read your filesystem, you can use that inside scripts to read some content from your filesystem and use it inside your template.
Thanks for the feedback @bjrmatos. I decided to just make a request to the service separately. Given that I have time constraints for delivering a working solution, I will focus on just making a separate request.
I should note that I did try the example you suggested but was unable to access the images in any directory during the compilation using the handlebars engine.
