I’m currently in the midst of the longest vacation I’ve taken in over 3 years. Aside from cranking out content for my next Pluralsight course, working on improving the startup experience for SpecsFor and SpecsFor.Mvc, AND working on an entirely new member of the SpecsFor family, I also decided I wanted to ship a product! Say hello to Perfect PDF for ASP.NET MVC!
I’ve had the extreme misfortune of having to implement HTML to PDF conversion for ASP.NET applications on more than one occasion over the last few years. There are plenty of solutions out there, but I’ve yet to find one that I would call “perfect.” I want something that’s simple, yet flexible. Something that’s standards-complaint so that I can use CSS3 and HTML5. Something that is (fairly) easy to troubleshoot and debug. Something that renders a PDF that matches what I see in my browser. And I want something that feels like a real solution built for ASP.NET MVC, and not something that’s cobbled together using magic strings.
I’ve never found a solution that fit this bill, so I decided to build it myself. It’s currently in limited beta, so hurry over and check it out if you’re interested!
