I just got some requirements from a group of users that need dynamic PDF's created. Our software stack uses spring-boot java backend and a vueJS front end.
- barcode support
- dynamic fonts, styles etc..
- support for images
- multiple page print outs
I would prefer to use some sort of GUI or easy-to-use user interface to create these PDF files. I would like to drag and drop elements into the software and generate a report. I'd like to pass parameters into this report that can be dynamic. This data will likely come from our databases.
I have researched and tried implementing iText and Jasper Reports. iText mostly uses HTML and CSS, but for complex reports this can become a tedious and long process.
We have yet to figure out how to implement Jasper Reports into our current technology stack successfully. Java 8/Spring Boot/VueJS
I'm looking for a modern library that makes it very easy to dynamically generate PDF reports. We will likely pull data from a database and populate the report with this data. The only thing that will be static in these reports is a company logo. Barcodes and data will all be dynamic.
