The website I currently work on has a section where I need to send a schedule to customers. I fill the fields (activity, start time, end time, etc..) and it generates a schedule. Right now It sends this schedule as an HTML email. It looks really nice, but my boss wants that is sends a PDF attachment instead. I looked on the web for answers but couldn't find anything satisfying.
Any ideas ?
Php To PDF can do this very simply. Does your hosting server support PHP scripts?
Yes it supports PHP scripts.
5$ for each 125 pdf... This can get very expensive !
$5 for what? Where did you see that?
Taken from their site :
How much does each PDF generation cost?
Each PDF generation costs 1 token. Every account starts with 30 tokens and more can be purchased in small or bulk increments for as little as under a penny each.
yes php to pdf is not free, it's a web services. I tried once to use it, but as soon as the generration was in process token was needed. perhaps that I did miss a step somewhere, but without token PDF was not generated
that's why I went on different other API listed above.
