Using wkhtmltopdf and an Xvfb daemon to render HTML to PDF
I was getting this error "xvfb-run: error: Xvfb failed to start" on Ubuntu , where previously my script had run without problems on Ubuntu. Security : 0. Watchers : Forks : Open Issues : 2. MIT 82ed9eeb1dfaede4bea27c7c. The wkhtmltopdf and - optionally - wkhtmltoimage command must be installed and working on your system. See the section below for details. For Windows systems make sure to set the path to wkhtmltopdf.

I have a lot of projects that consist of collecting information and then rendering it to PDF, initially I used tcpdf , but the rendering is VERY finicky. I was doing some additional research a few weeks ago for a personal project and found wkhtmltopdf. I was scraping my Harvest time sheets to gather my hours for the previous two weeks, rendering to a PDF, and automatically creating a RightSignature document to be signed by my employers. Plus, automating things is awesome. This is fine, because I run the process manually, at will. I have some other projects that require repeated rendering on a live site, for multiple users. Running individual xvfb-run processes for each request is just a dumb idea.
A better approach would be to use an existing rendering engine from a browser, and then build a binary around it that can take a website as input and produce a PDF as output. That way you can get results consistent with how browsers would print a page and if you pick the right engine you'll not have to keep up with any changes to HTML standards, the engine developers will do that for you. This is essentially the approach wkhtmltopdf takes: it extracts the open-sourced Webkit renderer used inside browsers like Safari and Chrome and bundles it up into a Linux CLI application which produces some pretty impressive results. I thought I'd jump right in and start by compiling it on my Debian webserver. The wkhtmltopdf site has some instructions for building it on Ubuntu, which I thought were worth a try. The basic procedure was as follows:.
When I run the wkhtmltopdf program with the rendered html page as input, some of the styling is rendered but the fonts are not. I am using a.

You're using the version of wkhtmltopdf in the debian repositories, which does not support running just put xvfb-run before any wkhtmltopdf command. I get the message when I try xvfb-run xvfb failed to start. I simply don't know where to start trouble shooting as I can't find or create an error log. The specified command is then run using the X display corresponding to the Xvfb server just started and the X authority file created earlier. When the command exits, its status is saved, the Xvfb server is killed using the process ID stored earlierthe X authority cookie removed, and the authority file deleted if the user did not specify one to use.
Let's get started, shall we? Step 1: Install wkhtmltopdf and xvfb. # apt-get install wkhtmltopdf xvfb. Step 2: Create and enable the init script for the xvfb daemon. Step 3: Modify the PHPWkHtmlToPdf Wrapper. Step 4: RENDER!
