I am working in a project where I need to create a PDF version of a page like this (but more complex and long)
we noticed that we can work with this JSON service http://www.reporting.cloud/#pricing
but unfortunately it is not free after 100 monthly conversions so I am looking for something
that can work like an API but that I could host by myself.
Do you know if any of the products in CODECANYON can work in the way we expect?
If you’re interested in custom work:
In terms of ‘self-hosting’ and pdf creation then have a look at http://www.fpdf.org/
FPDF is a PHP class which allows to generate PDF files with pure PHP, that is to say without using the PDFlib library. F from FPDF stands for Free: you may use it for any kind of usage and modify it to suit your needs.
FPDF has other advantages: high level functions. Here is a list of its main features:
Choice of measure unit, page format and margins
Page header and footer management
Automatic page break
Automatic line break and text justification
Image support (JPEG, PNG and GIF)
TrueType, Type1 and encoding support
FPDF requires no extension (except Zlib to enable compression and GD for GIF support). The latest version requires at least PHP 5.1.
PHP also has pdf functions but TBH I have (and do) use/d FPDF olot and it is easy to setup and you can create all sorts of things pdf wise with it
