PDF reports

How can I integrate the apps create with generate PDF data reports ?

Wappler doesn’t have this functionality. However, I’ve used http://fpdf.org/ successfully but it means hand coding.

Also the Kendo library works amazingly well, can fully style with CSS so can replicate the page, with breaks between your repeats etc, just drop in a couple of script links and ‘go go go’:

Such a pity that you have not found this HTML to PDF converter for Wappler

I believe that is in Node.js only. I don’t see that in PHP.

I think @ben was joking. But would be a lovely feature to add.

I don’t think he’s joking. He’s referring to the custom extensions available for PHP and NodeJS:

Ooh, I must have somehow missed that. Will now look into it.

Be sure to check the extensions section :slight_smile: there are quite a few interesting projects there.

I’m not sure I’m comfortable with third party extensions in Wappler given how often Wappler updates. I see extension management being a real danger without a good extension manager like DMX has for Dreamweaver.

Umh, don’t see how are the Wappler updates and custom modules related?
Custom modules are custom modules, you put them in a custom location and they work there. Not really related to Wappler core files…

Thanks Teodor, guess I really don’t understand how to install them and the technical details. I’ll watch for a module that I could really use and try to learn more.

This was my first detailed attempt at custom modules. Maybe it will help you get started:
