DocRaptor is now available as a task within Kotive workflows! Kotive enables anyone – including non-technical people – to automate and control the flow of tasks within their business. Setting up your document does require some HTML knowledge, and you’ll be limited to making PDFs based on other Kotive integrations, but you no longer need to be a programmer to create basic PDFs with DocRaptor...

When you view an ordinary web page, many errors may occur without your knowledge. The page itself may fail to load, or resources (such as images and stylesheets) may fail to download, be sent using bad encoding, have unknown MIME types, or any number of other common errors.
As long as the page loads, your browser attempts to display the page and it ignores any errored images or stylesheets... Continue Reading
One of the most common documents generated by DocRaptor is a report, and what’s a report without an eye-catching chart or two? We’ve long supported charting libraries, like HighCharts, but today we’re taking another big (yet surprisingly simple) step forward with our HTML to PDF engine.
By popular request, you can now set separate billing information in DocRaptor if you’d like to quit forwarding the monthly invoice to Amy in accounting. You can also customize your invoice with the full address, company name, and VAT number if you’re into that kind of thing... Continue Reading
Creating PDFs with Drupal is now effortless with the DocRaptor Drupal PDF add-on for the Print module. DocRaptor is a commercial HTML to PDF API built specifically for making PDFs. Advantages of using DocRaptor over using open-source libraries include:
- Support & Document Log: PDF generation is tricky, especially with parsing engines that are designed for making web pages, not PDFs.
Today we are happy to announce support for API Access to Document Logs, which has long been available on the internal dashboard of DocRaptor. Our Document Listing API only worked for documents that created successfully, which was not ideal!
There are a lot of reasons you might want this, including but not limited to:
- success/failure rates of your document generation
- tags distribution against success rates
- easier DocRaptor white-labeling for agencies
- usage report for specific weeks/months/years
What would it look like to get a log of all document creation attempts for the first 7 days of 2015?.. Continue Reading
Whether you’re creating an eBook or a marketing one-page with fine print, footnotes are a necessity. With DocRaptor (powered by Prince), footnotes are easy to create and you can do it inline too!
Unfortunately, you’re out of luck if you’re using open-source tools such as wkhtmltopdf or PhantomJS. It’s possible to create HTML documents that look like they have footnotes, but you’ll need to add an extra footnotes section and split your footnotes from your content... Continue Reading
