Anyone know of a frontend library (html/css/js) that is tailored to building "documents". Documents in the traditional sense of a sales proposal, invoice, etc (think paper/printed). Think of a traditional embedded PDF viewer, I'm looking for a library to rapidly create some content to be displayed inside the viewer (being HTML not PDF) that give it a "paper" feeling.

I've searched and haven't come up with anything close. Box offers a web viewer UI component, but as part of their platform, the content has to be sent to their system and gets converted on their backend ( https://codepen.io/box-platform/pen/rmZdjm ). A few pictures of similar content I'm looking to create.



  • Although not impossible maybe, are there any reasons not do this on the backend. That would make things easier. – Thomas Oct 2 '20 at 9:45
