PDF Generator

yinka/PDF-Generator

A fork of Jancurn's url-to-pdf act with added name input & and delay until network is idle. Opens a web page in headless Chrome using Puppeteer and prints it to PDF. The input is a JSON object such as: { "url": "https://wiki.org", "pdfOptions": { "format": "a4", "printBackground": true }, "name": "Wiki.pdf" } The "pdfOptions" object is passed to Puppeteer's page.pdf() function - see https://github.com/GoogleChrome/puppeteer/blob/master/docs/api.md#pagepdfoptions Output is a PDF file.

To run the actor, you'll need an Apify account. Simply create a new task for the actor by clicking the button below, modify the actor input configuration, click Run and get your results.

API

To run the actor from your code, send a HTTP POST request to the following API endpoint:

https://api.apify.com/v2/acts/yinka~PDF-Generator/runs?token=<YOUR_API_TOKEN>

The POST payload including its Content-Type header is passed as INPUT to the actor (usually application/json). The actor is started with the default options; you can override them using various URL query parameters.

Example
curl https://api.apify.com/v2/acts/yinka~PDF-Generator/runs?token=<YOUR_API_TOKEN> \
-d '{
  "url": "https://wiki.org",
  "pdfOptions": {
    "format": "a4",
    "printBackground": true
  },
  "name": "Wiki.pdf"
}' \
-H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
-X POST

To use the API, you'll need to replace <YOUR_API_TOKEN> with the API token of your Apify account (view here).

For more information, view the list of actor API endpoints or the full API reference.

Scheduler

Do you need to run the actor periodically? You can easily create a schedule that will run the actor any time you want.
