Thanks a lot. We were able to run some successful tests.
Now we'll spend some time implementing a full printing scenario with out app.
It doesn't work well for js web apps. For instance:
It seems jsreport is not waiting for the page to be visually complete.
Is there additional options to tick or pass to the request function?
Dear jsreport team,
We're considering jsreport for our projects, but there's just one thing holding us back:
Most of our reports would be PDF or Excel renderings of grids we have on screen. For most reports, we don't want to rewrite the corresponding angular screens in some other templating engine in jsreport. Instead we intend making our screens printable. In this scenario, we would pass some URL to jsreport and expect jsreport to render the corresponding angular page to a PDF and return it.
We could build the same with some flavor of headless chrome such as browserless, but we think jsreport has interesting extra capabilities built-in such as TOC, PDF encryption, Excel-based templating, etc. That we'd love to use for some more sophisticated reports.
Do you think jsreport can be used as a chrome-based server-side PDF renderer? If yes, how would that work?
